Thanks to all of you!

Mili, Now I know what phrase to use when I want to test my umlauted "a" glyph!

Thanks Eben, Andrew, and David--and to Carl for his well scripted turn of phrase :-)

What type do we have in the works there?

I can't write in beautiful calligraphy or design a custom birthday typeface, but I can wish you all the happiness possible on his birthday and every other day. You are the best!

As my father is fond of saying: Congratulations on another year of defying the laws of chance and probability.

THANKS to all of you! You have made it a great day for me. You have made me go listen to my favorite Beatles song.

Better late than never -- a birthday poem....

When you get old
And get out of shape
Remember that plastic surgery
Can fix a lot of those problems.
Even baldness, if you like a goofy hairline.


Bald Condensed's picture

No solving the baldness, it's sexiness/coolness. ;^)

Happy belated birthday, Dez. :^)

"They say it was your Birthday, Dez."
"Whaaat? You say there's fuzz on my fez?"
"No... ya old fart. You're getting older!"
"Ya mean that young tart wants to sit on my shoulder?"
"No use trying if you just can't hear."
"Darn right you're going to buy me a beer... it was my Birthday, ya old coot."

Miss Tiffany's picture

Ehehehe! Nice one, Norbert!

I don’t know how to thank you all for such a wonderful thread! This truly made my year special. You all are the greatest!!!
I should have birthdays more often if it brings out such wonderful works in progress such as Carl, Dan, William, and Mark have posted here. Great stuff!
James, my "lighting up" may be due to the reflection off my vacant dome bouncing across the globe :-)
Jackie, tell Lauren and Ollie I am flattered, even if I got itchy and scratchy due to cat allergy :-)
Thanks, poet laureate Linda, for your hairlines of verse--Yves knows where I am coming from on that one :-)
Hiroshige, yours takes the cake for biting sarcasm and Florian, that was just a scream! Chris Rugen gets the rimshot requested. Special thanks to my dear friend André who will soon have his sans released.
To that OTHER old Fart Norbert, I about blew a gasket after seeing your old codgerism cartoon, dude! (my wife wanted to know who the young tart was though).
Grazie, Lore and to Tiff, Patty, Haley, Sharon, and Tamye. Hi fivin Paul, Kent, Eben, Nick, Bill, David, Stuart, Alex, Thomas, James, Jelmar, Andrew, Marc, Don, Craig, JEdward, Simon, Si, and the Beatled Ricardo--and anyone I missed!!!
A special thank you to the wonderful Mili for starting this thread! xoxoxox

You have all made me happy!

Ah Chris, that's so sweet. That is one of the nicest Thank Yous I've read in a long time...

Lauren & Ollie want you to know - you won't have an allergic reaction, though the two of them may look like cats to you - take a closer look at the picture - they are dogs. One is a Shih-tzu, the other a Bichon Frise. Both are known to be good breeds for folks that normally have allergies to animals....

Don't worry, Ollie won't lick you till you meet him at least 10 times....

"take a closer look at the picture - they are dogs"

My old eyes failed me again! Sorry for the mixup, Lauren & Ollie!
