Let's be Frank,
it might be nice,
to soak up some,
Miami vice,
or versa that,
soak in the sun,
use SPF,
sot paddle's fun,
to find a porpoise,
peas paddle pod,
around of gulf,
on seas so sod,
nor moss shall grow,
'neath ageless dawn,
still rocking Frankly,
to paddle on.

Happy Solar Circuit to Your Natal Nascence
(since "birthday" has probably been referenced nearly a billion times already in your history.)

  Yes! Solar Circuit!

I like it.

wondrous is our great blue ship
that sails around the mighty sun
and joy to everyone that rides along

(and Miami is a little 'jungley')

Every year I say I'm going to have to get down there one of these days, but that day still hasn't come. But, one of these days.....
  Happy Birthday Frank!

Don't hit P-Net every day, leave it alone for a while, and look what happens...

Lo and behold, every year, KK surprises me.


After 66 years overall, and 15 years on P-Net (yes, fans, I still have one of the original shirts given away for my contribution to Places to Paddle), you'd think I'd learn.

Nope. I'm still surprised. Dammit Cuda, stop sneaking up on me in plain sight, LOL!

(Aside -you all see that handsome shirt Brent's offering as a 15-year anniversary edition? I may just have to get one after all this folderol, and 15 years of making friends I've never met on the boards.)

But it's nice having such luminaries as CWDH pen one of his wonderful wacky witticisms on my natal anniversary's solar cycle circuit -thanks! BTW, CD, I can't help myself, I HAVE to be Frank with you -and everyone else!

And yes, P-Netters, it is indeed pretty fair here -84 and sunny blue skies yesterday at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, where our palms were indeed swaying in the breeze -and... where it was SO warm (chorus: "How warm WAS it?) ...that our crocodile didn't need to warm up on land and spent the day submerged.

So c'mon DOWWWWN, y'all. And join all our relatives, LOL!

And Jack, did Sally REALLY pay you to say that...?

But when all's said and done, it's good to be able to -once again, for another year, to have had the opportunity to live, love, laugh...

I still have hope to visit someday! I miss Florida in the winter.

But almost ready to close on a 30 acre "ranch" out here. (Goat Ranch, nothing else could get up that damn canyon!)

You Paddle On!

I will Party On!

Sorry Frank. Saw the post on February 6th and didn't look at the post date.

Still, never to late to wish a fellow paddler a happy birthday.
