Happy Guy Fawkes Day...and my birthday!

Remember, remember the Fifth of November...

I do love birthdays, mine especially. And since I celebrate Birthday Tide, there's still time to buy presents! It lasts for a week month!

Thank you, MP, for the lovely music! Yer the best!

Happy birthday. The gals, Puddytat and Timid also wish you well but they are very apprehensive around dogs and disappeared quickly after extending their greetings.

Grandmère Mimi said...

Agha, Happy Birthday! May you be blessed with many more.

Paul said...

A blessed birthdaytide. May it be filled with joy and and may wondrous people and events fill the year ahead, a year of health and love wherever you turn.

Mary Sue said...

Happy Birthday!

I always thought Birthdaytide lasted for an entire month, at least it does in my family.

Wormwood's Doxy said...

Happy Birthday, Avie!!! Hope it's a good one---but since I happen to know what Grendel is giving you, I'm thinking it will be. ;-)

Love,
Doxy and Jasper

Thank you all for the greetings!

Puddytat and Timid, Grendel is very used to cats and he pays them absolutely no heed. Doesn't even see them any more...but I wish you good purrings.

Thank you, Grandmère. I still feel young, but I admit I start to "hear Time's wingéd chariot drawing near...."

Paul, what lovely thoughts. The best gift is to have people around whom you love and who love you (family and friends, both at home and in the blogosphere) and I am truly blessed in that regard.

Mary Sue,

If your BirthdayTide lasts for a month, so can mine!

Doxy,
I have a feeling it's got something to do with Gravy..he's obsessed by it!

Happy Birthday - it's the day after here, so sorry for being late, but I think it's still the 5th on your side of the globe.

Don't take Elliot's advice on rolling trousers too seriously - dare to eat a peach instead. They're much nicer!

Lots of Love
Alcibiades, BlackStar and Fiver.

Happy Birthday! all the way from dark Dorset where the fireworks are winding down...

The blogosphere would be a darker place without The Moon by Night - may there be many more birthdays celebrated here!

BooCat said...

Happy Birthday and may you have many, many more. May you be surrounded by good health, good fortune and good friends and loved ones today and all the days to come.

Aghaveagh said...

Alcibiades, et al,

how mind-bending to think that it is tomorrow where you are! And we will never be on the same day!

And you're right, I should dare to eat a peach. But I have heard the mermaids singing..aw, never mind.

Mikef and Boocat,

Happy Guy Fawkes Day!! A penny for the Guy to you! Thanks for the well wishes.

It's been a great birthday!!!

Happy birthday!!! I am listening to Mad Priest's MP3 which I have downloaded so am there in spirit. Hope you had a blessed day. It's neat to have your birthday in the octave of All Saints. The three cats and I wish you well

Aghaveagh said...

Thank you! I hope it is not too cold up there--if so all the cats and you can have a nice cuddle of an evening! Nothing like a furry cat to keep one warm...

We are sitting at -2.5 C today and Nich joins me although he is very weak with many happy returns of the day to you. Grendel resembles Laika we think.

We are both burdened with the story of Laika the Beloved Explorer and Nich remembers the day she left this sphere.

He has yet to copose the kontakion in tone 6 for Laika's Day. He is debating whther to incorporate the phrase 'bark bark: Alleluia' since Lakia is an Eskimo dog and the work Lai refers to barking.

The Lady Mistabel said...

Over my bed hangs the Novgorod version of the 'Never Slumbering Eye if th]ge Lord' in egg tempera on gesso. Just now I read the sub title of your blog.

Aghaveagh said...

Oh, Lady Mistabel,

I am so glad the Nich is better!

Bark Bark: Alleluia!!!

I bet you are taking good care of him...

"how mind-bending to think that it is tomorrow where you are! And we will never be on the same day!"

Since my brother lives in Pennsylvania I've got kind of used to doing time calculations for the US: Sydney is 16 hours ahead of the US East coast, so we're on the same day for the first 8 hours of every US morning - but it's always dark here by the time your sun is coming up, since the early sunrise in your summer is during our winter, when the sun sets early.

Ain't the world an amazing place?!
