    Many Happy Returns, Ms Spin.
    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    Gracious!
    We each owe you for something as individuals, and maybe some of us can repay it.
    We all owe as a group, and can't possibly repay it.
    I. personally, owe you for duck-butts, and I'd be happy to repay that, if only you would accept some package of those in return! <grin!>

    Please be happy, please be content, please be safe. You will never get a true measure of where the love is coming from.

    I know as much about Finnish as a hedgehog knows about horse-racing. But according to Google, that means "Happy Birthday, my dear friend."

    Many happy returns Spinner.

    Seeing this today brings me double joy.... it is also my Mother's birthday and I've already had pleasant memories stirred by the date.

    Sorry I'm late Spin (not unusual for me), but here's wishing you a very special birthday.

    Sorry I'm late too, Aulikki. I hardly ever visit the Bilge these days, but I'm glad I today today, so I can send you sincere (albeit belated) birthday wishes. I hope you had a Really Great Day.
