Happy birthday to me




Wrinkles should merely indicate where smiles have been.
- Mark Twain



(Thank you, thank you! How did you guess?
It's getting late now, and I am still waiting for the delivery of the indoor arena, the two GP-horses and the cottage in Provence.
Did the postman get lost on his way, do you think? This year too???)

Happy birthday! A cottage in Provence would be nice indeed!

HorseOfCourse said...

Thank you!!!

It was not one of the memorable birthdays as I had to get up at 4.45 am to reach a flight to Sweden, where I am attending a seminar until Thursday.
Postman did not show up either, but maybe it was because I am not at home?

Happy Birthday!
Hey, you've got the same birthday list as me, although I've got the cottage (not in Provence though).

Belated birthday wishes Maria, you must have the same rubbish postal service as we have in France!!

Happy birthday!!
Who needs GP-horses when you have Fame?;)

HorseOfCourse said...

Thank you all!

Anne, you're too cute!
I just thought she should have some educated company.
Learn some tricks you know?
Some piaffe while waiting for the hay, for example. Few things like that.

The postman can't seem to find his butt with two hands. My ranch hasn't shown up yet and I've been waiting for 40 years or so. Happy BD!

HorseOfCourse said...

Mugs, now I know why he didn't show up at my place. He's been busy carrying your ranch along for 40 years. (Give the rest of us a chance, will you?)
