I don't usually do birthday posts here, mainly because it tends to be a Live Journal thing to wish all your followers a happy birthday - on Blogger, not so much. But I'm going to today as Pat at Here There and Everywhere is a very special lady who deserves all the good wishes in the world. I think I'm right in saying that it was one of Carl's challenges that brought us together, most likely one of the R.I.P. ones. Pat commented on one of my posts and you know how it is... we just hit it off. We had a lot in common, both huge fans of Star Trek, both into fantasy books for both kids and adults and so on. There seemed no end to the stuff we had in common. That was several years ago and Pat has become the sister I never had, we e.mail, talk on the phone from time to time and as soon as I can get to Florida we'll be meeting, rest assured. Someone better call a Florida newspaper *that* day! And Hubby had best be ready with several boxes of tissues. Anyway, the point of all this is that it's Pat's birthday today and I want to wish my wonderful, funny, sparkling, smart, amazing 'sister' many happy returns of the day. May you have many more birthdays, Pat, and continue to brighten my life.
And here're some more bluebells to go with you card. And if there aren't bluebells in Kesterwood then there's just no justice!
Happy Birthday, Sis.
