Sixty Birthday Fishes


Happy Birthday TW
You haven’t a clue
Why I bite you and scratch you
But I sleep with you too.

Last year a funny thing happened on TW’s birthday. The peeps had decided they weren’t going to exchange gifts since Pop was out of work and money was tight. After supper, TW went to the Refuse Room to throw the trash down the chute. As she opened the door, a bunch of Happy Birthday balloons jumped out of the room at her. She was both shocked and amazed.

She brought them into the condo totally convinced that Pop had planted them there for her to find. He shook his head. Someone on the floor apparently had a birthday and didn’t like the balloons. TW loved them and loved the surprise. Those are the balloons I’ve been gifting my furrends with on their Facebook page.

This year, Pop and I decided to go all out and buy TW some balloons cos what’s the chance of her finding more in the Refuse Room?

Happy Birthday, TW. I lu– lu– lu– … what I mean is I kinda like you.

I’ve also posted at the TCC for Oui Oui’s Gotcha Day as part of the Comment-A-Thon for PAWS.
