Day 24







My dad called me today and explained how I came into the world this day all shiny and red. That's how I came in and that's how I'll go out. So if I go a little overboard with the lace and the pink and the red hearts, I'll have you know it is my birthright
And as they go, I do like this holiday. It is a chance to say "I love you" and that's not so bad.

Herzlichen Glückwunsch zum Geburtstag, cousin Nancy! Some of the old high school German pops up from time to time, even if my teacher saddled me with a Plattdüütsch accent. :)

Drop me a line if you and the family make it out to this neck of the woods--it was good to see your Dad last year at the 4th of July picnic in Murfreesboro.

Liebe Nancy,

alles Liebe zu deinem Geburtstag.
Du bereicherst die Nähwelt mit deinen Rundungen sehr.
Ich liebe deine Fotos, verstehe zwar den Text darunter nicht immer, aber ab und an schreibst du ja auch in meiner Heimatsprache. Und das kannst du oft viel besser, als so mancher Deutsche. Soviel Wortwitz, soviel Charme, soviel Beobachtungsgabe...
Fühl dich gedrückt und hab einen schönen Tag
Sanna

Hey Nancy,
ich wünsche Dir, einen schönen Geburtstag gehabt zu haben ;-) Für das neue Lebensjahr viel Kreativität und die Kraft, alle Deine Ideen auch umzusetzen. Just a moment and I#ll send you a swett sundownder with a great view over the Elbe and the Mühlenberger Segelhafen near the Hirschpark - the "birthplace" of your Jack! LIVE of course!
Love from Hamburg, the place with clear blue sky and an orange "face" in the evening in february - where so much love started...!

Herzlichen Glückwunsch nachträglich, liebe Nancy!

Ich mag den Valentinstag nicht sonderlich, eigentlich wie alle aus den USA hinübergeschwappten Feiertage und finde, dass man JEDEN Tag die Möglichkeit hat, jemandem zu sagen, dass man ihn liebt - braucht es dafür besondere Tage? ;o)

GLG, Sabine

You picked a wonderful day to be born: Right on your very own Birthday! (and my anniversary)
I don't want you to become one of my "Fancy friends" that I only take out on special occasions. I'd like us to be more like a pair of Duke's old Jeans- comfortable, cozy, worn a bit but still have a lot of life left in them.
