birthday card

Crow here. It will soon be midnight in the land of fog and squalls but before I finish my perchtime brandy, I wanted to let you know tomorrow is susan's birthday. In recognition of her friendship and good company over the course of many years I offer this seaside portrait she painted one early autumn afternoon. Since there is only one, and not a dozen or two, it will be awarded at random to one of you. Perhaps you could just mention you've stopped by.

Quite frankly, considering her quirks and odd concepts, it's always a relief to find her at home waiting when I return from my own travels. I can attest she's growing older but her sense of humor remains intact, a trait that helps sustain us all in difficult times.

May all your journeys be flights of phantsy.

Thank you, Crow, for that very important bit of news; may I comment that you look quite thoughtful in the picture, even pensive?

Happy birthday, Susan, and may you have a wonderful day. Ad multos annos!

how wonderful, i am making believe i am at a huge party, banquet laid from here to there with everything the most expensive and lavish as only susan would want ;), dancing and singing and candles for lighting, and everyone came in masks, how fun! perfect for how we never see our own faces on our blogs!! oops, there went mine and yours for one fat kiss or another....

happy birthday my dear, hoping you aren't yet freezing your little butt off up there, back there in the land of snows(i thought)..anyway, love your painting of crow, your painting always has this softness i adore and also love the framing you do...i want crows scarf right now, it's freezing down here with rain and even an occasional withering attempt at thunder claps...make them huge claps for you, my dear. ♥ for you~xoxox

Roses are red.
Violets are blue.
Happy mother fucking birthday to you.

Damn, you missed being a Sag like me by just a few days.

That's cool, I'm on the cusp. Probably why I'm so fucking sane.

Happy birthday, Susan. You're my favorite living artist.

I'm glad it's your birthday
Happy birthday to you.

Yes we're going to a garden party

I've already been lucky enough to get a picture from Susan, crow, but I did want to stop by and say Happy Birthday to her!! (We have birthdays only one day apart - mine is the 22nd.)
