Many Happy Returns
"You say it's your birthday
We're gonna have a good time
I'm glad it's your birthday
Happy birthday to you!"
- The Beatles, "Birthday"
Time to acknowledge some of the many important occasions to celebrate today:
To my Jewish, non-Israeli readers: Happy first day of chol hamoed Sukkos!
To my Israeli readers: Happy second day of chol hamoed Sukkos!
To my American readers: Happy Columbus Day!
To my Canadian readers: Happy Thanksgiving!
And last but certainly not least, Happy Birthday to one of my favorite people. Someone whose prose skills I've long admired, and who has been a big influence on me in many ways - especially in terms of my musical tastes. I'm talking, of course, about my good friend David, better known in J-Blogland as Soccer Dad!
And oh yes, it's John Lennon's birthday as well.
Since David probably doesn't want his picture on the internet, you'll have to settle for John's.
May we all find happiness in the day, whatever the reason (but hopefully not a warm gun)!
