you live all the days of your life."
Today we're celebrating Adam's
birthday! God only knows how old he is but I suspect if we had to
buy enough candles, even combining incomes, we'd go bankrupt! :-)
In honor of the occasion, I've added Adam's photos from "The Root of
All Evil" to JABB's
Adam Photo Gallery! Love the lovely long hair! I also
updated our index page
for the weekend.
Unfortunately, we can't actually
celebrate with Adam (though we can certainly celebrate him!) so I think
I'll turn this over to the folks who can: the Dyelanders!
But, first, a very happy and
blessed Thanksgiving to all our Canadian friends!
Birthday Wishes to Adam from His Friends
Birthday Adam. I'm sure you're going to have a wonderful
day. Don't worry, I'm making a special meal and dessert for one
of my best taste testers.
Happy Birthday buddy. Man, those
years fly by as we get older. Maybe we can have a jam session in
honour of your birthday. All the best.
May this coming year
bring you many blessings. You have come to mean so much to each
and every one of us. From our oldest denizen to the tiniest
child, you have brought a smile and lent a hand to all.
Like you, I care a great deal about my loved ones in Dyeland. I
would like you to know that it brings me much comfort when I know you
are there. Your good humor, brotherly assurances, and
dependability are blessings to us all.
Be well, my friend,
Adam aka Luscious,
I feel like we don't say it enough and I
just want you to know that we are all so glad that you're a part of our
lives! Whether we're like Tess or Andrew who have been blessed to
know you for uncountable years or humans whose brief lives have been
profoundly and beautifully changed by your friendship, none of us would
be the same with out you! You've taught us to stick up for what's
right, to defend the voiceless, and to beware of chandeliers.
You're not only Luscious but
birthday! You don't look a day over a million. ;) I
hope the turkeys are treating you well on your special day. Can
turkeys prepare breakfast in bed? On second thought... would you
want a breakfast prepared by turkeys? I guess you and I have a
long, long time to ponder that. You make immortality look good.
Hey there, buddy!
Happy birthday, Adam! Since this is only the third year we've
celebrated your birthday, I guess that makes you 3. You're a very
well behaved toddler. Usually. 0:-) I'm glad you're
really much, much older than that because you've been a very important
part of my life for so many years. I can't imagine missing out on
a single one of them.
Some days when I'm really struggling
with an assignment, I find myself thinking back on some of those great
Adam moments. Even when you're not there you can make me laugh
with only a memory. The thing is, you're always there during the
hard times, too. We all appreciate that.
I'm glad we'll be able to appreciate that for an eternity.

Celebrates Birthday Amid Turkeys and Friends
Tourkia, Dyeland-- Returning to Dyeland following an
assignment, Adam was welcomed back with open arms... and wings.
"It's always great to come back to Dyeland but coming back on my
birthday? I'm learning that's even more special," the angel of
death commented as he surveyed his festively decorated yard and
Among the surprises awaiting Adam was a kitchen table completely redone
in a turkey motif. "Turkeys every where but on the plates!" Lady JenniAnn
explained as she showed off the tablewear. "We have turkey
napkins, turkey napkin rings, turkey clay cups made by the Tunnel kids,
turkey table cloth, a lil girl turkey salt dispenser and a lil boy
turkey pepper dispenser, etc.! And look at this adorable plush
turkey centerpiece Yva made!"
The birthday boy will have no problem coming up with meals to enjoy at
his turkeyfied table. Other gifts included turkey-shaped quiches
lovingly baked by Lady Beth and her prize student, Henry, chocolate
turkeys from Willy's factory, and turkey-themed sugar cookies baked by
Rose and her Aunt Josephine. It is assumed Adam will have no
problem eating these culinary presents given none include actual turkey
Adam's fellow angel of death, Andrew, was among the last to present his
birthday gift to his friend. Looking disheveled and slightly out
of breath, Andrew appeared around noon.
"I thought it would be fun to take Adam's turkeys' feet... claw?...
talon? prints in
plaster," he was overheard to say. "I had an assignment at a
school and the pre-K kids made some hand prints for their
grandparents. It was very cute and seemed simple..." The
blonde angel of death paused to run his hand through his hair.
"It turns out turkeys don't like you trying to stick
their feet in plaster. Do I have plaster in my hair?"
The birthday boy was highly amused by the state of his friend and
touched by his determination. Chuckling, he held up the plaster
plaque Andrew and the turkeys had created. "This is really great,
buddy. Look at how tiny Ted's latest brood's foot prints still
This reporter must state you have not lived until you have seen a grown
man get misty-eyed over turkey footprints. In the words of
several guests: "Awww! So cute!"
Celebration of Adam's birthday is expected to give way to the Canadian
Thanksgiving celebration at Lady Beth's tomorrow. It will
certainly be a
weekend of parties in Dyeland.
"I love celebrating my birthday right before Thanksgiving," Adam
opined. "Because today I'm feeling very, very thankful for all
the people in my life. So thank You, Father. This is all
