I'm sitting here in a birthday hat, wearing nothing else except my birthday suit.
Many years ago, on this very day, my mother was in great pain.
But then I arrived and have been giving her solace and comfort ever since.
Except for a couple of years back in high school, of course, but I blame Christian Saller, Dave Weems, Al Barclay and the rest of those hooligans.
It's a good day to have been born, a good day to be alive, a good day all around.
Ann's Jim and Carl split the Cabin in the Sky. Lester and Earl stood in that big front hall with Jed and Granny and Jethro and the luscious Ellie Mae and they fiddled their fingers off. Buddy Ebsen even kicked his legs and showed the old moves, chorus boy that he was.
Well done, gentlemen.
