Happy Birthday Clever Pup!

For some reason I always want to call you Lucky Pup. That's very presumptuous of my subconscious, frankly.

Ahem & again: a happy birthday to you.

You are obviously in good company!

Your birthday horoscope from Phil Booth:
If today is your birthday: The stars indicate that you will throw yourself into a project that seems a little risky. Finances require some sorting out, but with a responsible head, you'll find a way to get some rewarding long-term benefits. Happy birthday to Derek Jeter, 35.
