Happy Birthday to YOU!

Post by Ratty » Sun Aug 11, 2013 4:57 pm

Is it your birthday? Are you the kind of guy that likes people to know it? Tell us. We'll wish you well.

What did you get for presents? What did you want? What did you do for your special day? How old are you?

OK. I'll start. 8/11/1952. That makes me about 29 years old. I got a big bag of homegrown tomatoes. Chocolate cake and vanilla ice cream. Spaghetti for dinner. And a good time was had by all.

Especially let us know if your birthday falls during the burn. Maybe we can drop by and share a beer.

Happy belated Birthday Ratty!

Mine is next Tuesday (2nd day of the burn!) I'll be with a few friends watching ya'll on u-stream from my place (I'm still recovering from emergency back surgery, arg) I'm thinking we'll have Volcano~ fire drinks and Cherries Jubilee with extra tall flames~ I'd rather be there firing them up in Illy Dilly's dome or Skinny Kitty's potato chip pavilion but not this year...*sigh*

Happy B-day grai and all the others...wish I could be there too but uh not gonna happen this year anyway...wave to the Camp Envy camera (mounted atop Cneter camp, I think?) if you can remember, haha!

much love, Moon ;)

Hey Moonrise, You have a happy one too. I heard they were searching for someone to stream the live video. I hope they have. I'll wave at you. Next year we'll have a birthday toast. Happy Birthday Moonrise!!

Happy birthday to all of you.

It's good to hear from you again Moon. Hope the healing process is going well.

Thx again, :)

so far I read they're short handed and there isn't a "drive in cam" (no biggie as far as I'm concerned) b/c the camera is packed up for the drive from the bay area...! Yaeh!

The upside is they have a camera packed up! phew! Sooooo many of us are counting on it for sooooo many reasons.....we wanna be there in some way but cannot, so we wanna watch some of the burn of course...

Thank you Camp Envy! and thx for the birthday well wishes everyone....HAVE A SCHWEEEEEET BURN! :) and happy B-Day to all of YOU Birthday Burners, too!! :)
