Thanks all those who responded to my previouis posts about my 'special' birthday which is approaching.

A special thnakyou to those who made constructive comments both in thread and by e-mail.

As always from this communi^W assorted group from online Pratchett fandom, some very interesting ideas.

An obvious dilemma is to do something I've previous done and enjoyed or to try something totally new, and indeed there are some things I've never ever done <g>

From various sources it is apparent that July and August is a bumper birthday month for afpers and #afpers, so warmest greetings (hippo birdies :) ) to my fellow celebrants.

Something I had thought about resurrecting is my idea of a fancy dress/movie theme party/meet [1] but at the moment that is very much in the dream category, and I hadn't realised that the birthday is as close as it can be to ccde. I don't know, dates seem to go straight through me at the moment.[2]

If I'm fortunate to make it this year, I'll have to bring *everybody* a little something with which to mark the occasion [3] [4]

Meanwhile, some more (toungue-in-cheek) wibble from a dreaming old fart :

(TTO Marble Halls by Afred Bunn)

I dreamt I held a grand masked ball
With costumed and fans in their wake
And of all who assembled within those walls
That I was the guy with the cake.
I had new friends too great to count
And a high respected name

But I also dreamt which pleased me most
That you flamed me still the same
That you flamed me
You flamed me still the same
That you flamed me
You flamed me still the same

I dreamt that new friends sought my band
With council then given free
And with puns and comments from my keen hand
They'd share their tales with me
And I dreamt that all of that noble host
Could be a friend to name

But I also dreamt which charmed me most
That you flamed me still the same
That you flamed me
You flamed me still the same
That you flamed me
You flamed me still the same
