Thanks a gazillion for your tremendously wonderful response over the years ! Well friends, tighten your seatbelts and brace yourselves !!! The joyride starts agaaaaaaaaaaaaaiiiiiin !
Whoooooosh ! Bang ! Spiffff ! Booom ! Bangbooomburrahhh !!! Oops ! Sorry, guys ! Those fireworks can be pretty loud ! And hey, look ! I’m crying !!! It must be the smoke… Nooooo ! You’re right, these are tears of happiness. It’s been such an adventure of joy… and right now, I’m at a loss for words. Ron tells me that Happiness is infectious ! In that case, I’m glad to spread the insanity ! You’ve been such great friends, guys ! Thanks for all the encouragement ! And as a true pal, I’ll always be there for you. Count on us to keep adding the oomph and zing to your celebrations ! That’s my promise to you on the Birthday Of 123greetings.com ! Keep clicking ‘n spread the happy thoughts !
Perspective is how you look at things… Ain’t it funny how the same thing can look different to different people ? My buddy Steve practically shrieks when he spies a rubber band ! I, on the other hand, simply smile ‘n get nostalgic ! Well, Stevie took one too many elastic hits from the class bully in school, so no wonder he hates the rubber band ! I, too remember being caught behind my ear once; by a well aimed shot from my classmate Mary. Ouch ! But instead of getting angry, I wrestled her to the ground. We both rolled over laughing. Guess what ? She was my first crush ! Simple li’l rubber band… but excellent memories ! Rubber Band Day is just around the corner, guys ! Send a few impish cards and bring back the memories of the great ol’ days.
Kelly’s nuts, I tell you ! All of us were out for a walk ‘n out of the blue she’s demanding to know what we’re planting on Plant Something Day ! “How ‘bout planting your feet on solid ground ?” Steve quipped. Bit rich, that… comin’ from the stargazer ! I idly murmured, “I could plant some kisses, you know…” “Let’s plant a fence,” Ron added his bit ! “We could plant a scent of suspicion,” Megan joined in the banter ! Kelly was dead furious ! To her, ‘plant something’ must always have something to do with plants ! She retorted, “Why don’t I plant a few punches on all your cheeks, guys ?” We all broke out laughing, shocking the passers-by and a few birds ! Well, what do you plan to plant on this day, friends ? Do remember to plant some grand wishes all around ! As for Kelly, she’s welcome to plant the flowers ‘n seeds to her heart’s content !
Megan ‘n me are both absolute foodies. Of course you know that ! But did you know that we’re both circus freaks ? You’ll find this tough to believe, but I can’t remember a single year when we’ve missed going to the Big Apple Circus ! From toddlers to teenagers to today, it never ceases to amaze us ! We were even there when Carrillo and Goulevich set their world records ! It was simply amazing, watching Goulevich twirling so many hula hoops and Carrillo skipping a rope on the high wire on and on and on… ! This Circus Day is gonna be no exception; we’ll be there for the Spring Engagement. And just before losing myself in all the fun ‘n fantasy, I’ll make sure to send heaps of hilarious e-cards to all my friends ‘n give them a dose of the best medicine, laughter !
Yes, I don’t actually have a million dollars to spare… But hey, I’ve always considered myself a millionaire ! And why not ? Mr. Big in office claims that I have a million naughty ideas swirling around in my head at any given moment (and that a pest like me is born once in a million years) ! Kate says I’ve got a million dollar smile ! And my playful pawsome Kong covers me with a million licks every day when I come home from office ! Hey guys, I’ve got a million reasons to be happy ! On Be A Millionaire Day, find a million ways to be cool and send that many hugs ‘n kisses to all your near ‘n dear ones with our lovely e-cards. Be a millionaire from within and send a million smiles all around !
“AIDS may be a killer, but we will keep fighting. And we’ll win !” I was a bit taken aback when Rick said that. He wasn’t angry; the words just came out with a quiet determination. We were sitting in our neighborhood bistro waiting for the pizza, and I realized he was missing his longtime buddy Sam. He had succumbed to AIDS a few weeks ago. I’d met Sam a couple of times… his infectious enthusiasm for cars could even rival Rick’s passion ! It was wonderful how Rick and the rest of his buddies stood behind him during his last days and gave him all the support. International AIDS Candlelight Memorial day is just a few days away, guys. It’s a great opportunity to show support for the afflicted ones, and to spread awareness in our community. Use our wonderful cards to spread the message of hope. As Rick says, sooner or later we’ll win !
Help me out here, guys ! I’m in big trouble ! It seems that those rogue pooches of mine Kong ‘n Pirate had a field day in my neighbor Mrs. Bradley’s garden ! They dug up her seeds and planted some bones instead ! And just now Kelly tipped me off that a livid Mrs. Bradley was waiting for me with a rake ! Quite some reception committee, I must say ! Kelly’s quite thrilled, she’s all for the protection of plants and seeds ‘n poor Bob doesn’t even feature on her ‘protected species’ list ! So I’ll have to fend for myself this time ! But one thing I can promise you, friends. If I do come out of this mess alive ‘n in one piece, I’m gonna give Mrs. Bradley the bestest treat possible in the world on Neighbor Day ! She does fly off the handle once in a while, but she’s been tolerating our antics with a smile for years ! She’s the greatest neighbor I’ve ever had and I simply love ol’ Mrs. Bradley.
Whew ! That was quite a joyride, wasn’t it ? Well, the fun’s not over !!! Next week, I’ll be back again with another bagful of goodies for your sheer pleasure. That’s a promise !
