Congratulations on your birthday! What a great variety (and number!) of gifts! I got several DVDs, a little cash, and a restaurant gift card last week.

Good morning!
Today is my daughters 18th birthday! I'm so happy that all my girls have off from work. My youngest has drivers ed this morning but we all plan on going out to lunch later after she gets home. For dinner I will be making Spaghetti Bolognese. And for dessert I will be making brownies. Its kind of strange that the birthday girl doesn't like cake but she loves brownies. So I guess I could stick a candle in a brownie, right? And later this evening she will be having friends over to hang out around the pool in the back yard.
I hope everyone has a great day!!!

Heaven only know what all that means and I think that camel is being intentionally cryptic to get as many people to come as possible.
Sounds like a new OPERA, maybe? Binger, have you been composing?

Yeah, it looks pretty bad. I don't even know why they do it if they aren't going to put any effort into it.
