Happy Birthday Prof x

It's the professor's birthday tomorrow

And we will be doing little birthday "treat" things all day
He never works on the anniversary of his birth
It's a tradition

And so I will warm him some chocolate hot cross buns for breakfast
I will line up his cards and pressies in bed ( for the " official opening")
And I will keep my everyday chicken husbandry and dog Clingon removal to a minimum today
He will come first... Which is a rarity when the usual competition is  group of needy animals.
He's a big kid when birthdays are involved

 I have  to say that we are a good team, the prof and ,I and we have been so  for over 13 years now........
He gives me grounding, objectivity, security and love

I give him warmth, humour, a home reminiscent of Miss Marple's cottage  and a constant headache.........it's a good partnership.......
it works........
.....and so ...... Today.......all ..I will say......is " Happy birthday my old doll"
You don't look 44...................
...........
.............much

  6. you and Chris are an excellent team...here's wishing him the Happiest of Birthdays (wow you really make me miss my Don...one of the things I miss the most is him making special occasions out of all the yearly celebrations...well now I'm all teary eyed). Enjoy YOUR day Chris :D (and be thankful he's putting the animal husbandry on the back burner for the day) :D

  19. Never working on his birthday....now why didn't I think about that. It should be part of employment law - if it's your birthday you are entitled to a paid day off. Happy Birthday to Professor Brainstawm! At 44 he's just a baby.

  46. Ahh, 44 - so long ago! A very happy birthday to you, Chris. It looks as though John has that well in hand. May you both have a wonderful day - or by now I guess it's mostly over in your neck of the woods.
