A California girl name of Lennie
Whose UFO projects were many
Was decidedly keen
On her sewing machine
With fabulous features aplenty

She decided to post things online
She picked out a forum so fine
And at SWN
She made lots of friends
Who loved her to bits in no time

She was online all day and all night
The sewing was going alright
And Lennie’s big mouth
Was known north and known south
And her projects would also excite

Her new friends just wanted to say
How much we enjoy having her stay
So Best Wishes we drawl
From one and from all
And to Lennie – Happy Birthday!

:bday: :bday: :bday:

I knew you'd look and yes I'm early - but it is Saturday here for me.

...not that a post entitled "don't look Lennie " will get her to look!

Have a grand day, Lennie!
love and kisses, Jan

Do you really think Jan?

Not much guaranteed to get me to look faster. I just think she's too cagey to post and let me know for sure. Of course it would be rude not to acknowledge all the good wishes sent her way. :bg:

Somebody might need to post a proper birthday message so she doesn't explode with frustration.

Pauline! I figured you for a stinker and now you've proven it!! :bg:

I saw your post late afternoon yesterday and figured it had something to do with my b'day. :re: (I'd just as soon skip it, any takers??)

I honestly tried not to look but then my curser opened up the "sneak peek" feature and I couldn't turn away. I HAD to see what was there.

You are all so very sweet and genuinely make me sit here with a big, silly grin on my face. I am spending the day pretty much alone. I was going to accompany dh on a trip that would have taken ALL day with hours and hours of driving but as I've been sleeping horribly for days now and feel like crappola I chose to stay home today. I did find a couple of b'day cards hidden away in obvious (?) places from dh. :love:

I'll give dd a call soon (it's only 9:00 a.m.) since she was going to look after the animals and hopefully see her but I know she's got a farewell bbq to attend this afternoon.

I see that Barbara (Anza) posted too. I do feel so special.

:love: Love and kisses to everyone! Lennie

Forgot to add, Pauline, LOVED the poem. I don't think anyone's ever written a poem for little ol' me. :up:

I met dd at a little tea cottage in town and had some tea, lunch and then did some touristy shopping around. Funny when you live in a tourist town how seldom you actually go into the shops. :nc:

I've heard from family and friends and now I just have to wonder if ds remembers...:re: He's a great guy but not big on remembering special dates.

Thanks again everyone. Lennie

Thanks, but I did have to call ds and gently give him hell for not remembering his dear mother's b'day! It was about 8 p.m. and I decided to be pro-active and not sit here with hurt feelings wondering if he was going to remember. :mad:

All in all it was a fine day but poor dh didn't get home till almost 1 in the morning. I'm so glad I didn't go with him.

Thanks everyone! Lennie

Pauline, what a great poem for Lennie!!

Lennie, sorry I missed your birthday-I just can't seem to get organized these days and it's days before I get online it seems. Sounds like your day turned out OK in the end and hope you are feeling better by now!!!
