Mr. Blueberry Reaches the Big One

The Big Five-Oh! The half-century mark!! Over The Hill and beginning to slide!! Just kidding, at least in his case. He's fit as a fiddle, goes cycling, works like a fiend xeriscaping the garden and pampering the butterfies and birds. He's a treehugging liberal who loves cats and other creatures, doesn't eat animals, and does household chores! For his birthday, he gave himself a Backyard Wildlife Habitat Certificate from the National Wildlife Federation. Guys like this don't come along everyday, sometimes never.

No Hawaii Five-O here, this one really is prettier. From 1979, it's The Rain Song by Led Zeppelin.

Lyrics
This is the springtime of my loving-
the second season I am to know
You are the sunlight in my growing-
so little warmth I've felt before.
It isn't hard to feel me glowing-
I watched the fire that grew so low.
It is the summer of my smiles-
flee from me Keepers of the Gloom.
Speak to me only with your eyes
it is to you I give this tune.
Ain't so hard to recognize-
These things are clear to all from time to time.

I've felt the coldness of my winter
I never thought it would ever go
I cursed the gloom that set upon us...
But I know that I love you so
but I know that I love you so.
These are the seasons of emotion
And like the winds they rise and fall
This is the wonder of devotion-
I see the torch we all must hold.
This is the mystery of the quotient-
Upon us all a little rain must fall.

Now that I've made you melancholy, here's a picker-upper: in lieu of singing "Happy Birthday", here is the about 10 minutes of MST3k's Pod People, which includes the hit song, "Idiot Control Now", and the MST3K parody, "Sack of Monkeys in My Pocket".

Happiest of Birthdays to Mr Blueberry. What a wonderful gift you got for him. I just love it and I love knowing there are other guys out there who are so much like Mr Pop. We sure did get lucky, huh? Of course they got a little lucky too.:)

Happy Five-OH to Blueberry's "sunlight".

"Fit as a fiddle", hopefully that is a bluegrass fiddle. ;)

Now that his hike has reached the summit, makes sure he enjoys the view.

Congrats on finding a tree-hugging cat/animal lover. Here in BAMA, those kind of kindred souls are hard to find, male or female.

Great Music! I can listen to Zepplin all day.
