Happy Birthday, Dave Swan! Dave is one of our real gems - a fine singer, a real wit and a great guy. He and his wife Pam are two of the most warm, welcoming people you're likely to meet. When Dave is not singing with his band Oak, Ash and Thorn, he is out fighting fires with the Piedmont, CA fire department, sometimes being called by neighboring communities to fight the many brush fires that spring up in the East bay's dry summers. A trained paramedic, saving lives, homes and places of work is his profession. On top of that, in the best culinary tradition of firefighters, Dave can cook a mean 5-alarm Indian Curry. It also tastes good! You're a pal, Dave, and it's an honor to know you. Happy birthday.

Hi Michael, welcome to what we refer to as the musical Mudcat firehouse -- putting out the brushfires of dullness with the, etc., etc. DAVE: May you have many many oxen, and exceptionally long and straight furrows in the ground and not on your brow, and may your yoke be as the white of an egg. Or whatever.

Well Michael, the Great El Swanno is quite a guy. Along with what chanteyranger mentioned, he also had a high dive act that met with mixed reviews, hence the retirment of the gorilla suit......well actually half a gorilla suit. He would climb to a perch on a 90 foot tower dressed in half a gorilla suit and fishnet hose, leap off, ignite a monstrous fart, and rocket down into a fire helmet filled with lime jello. This inspired both applause and some massive coronaries so you can see why he no longer performs the act.

Well ES.....unhh....unhh....POW. ...... and a Happy Birthday too!!!

Oh sheesh, Spaw, now you're gonna scare them off! Michael and the rest of you fairly newbies, take a scroll through some of the earlier Mudcat Tavern threads and you'll espy our El Swanno taking the dive of which Spaw speaks. Be warned, though, there are at least 15-20 Tavern threads, in various guises, all with at least 100 postings, so sit back and enjoy. You could also just type in "gorilla" in the super search box and hit go. That should bring you to the postings in quesiton.

Alrighty, NOW that I've cleaned up some litter:

HAPPY BIRTHDAY EL SWANNO!! Hope you have a flame-free, smoulderng-free, fire-free day and that your year brings you all that you desire and need.

You share a birthday with a very dear friend who now lives in Sarasota, FL. Knowing that it is your birthday also makes this day even more special.

Have a wonderful day and a great many more to come. Hope we'll get to meet one day.

My dear wife and some dear friends are taking me out to hear some Tuvan music, so I've just got a second to say thanks very much to all of you for the kind and friendly wishes today and throughout the year. Thanks to the new Mudcatters who wished me HBD. Stick around, there are many folks here who are old friends you just haven't bumped into yet.

Swan sat hunched over the Racing Form, three fingers of Cuervo in a glass at his elbow. The expression on his face said he be better off skipping the track records- might as well pin the form on the wall and throw steak-knives at it. He had gotten sloppy- old, and sloppy. His piece lay on the kitchen counter just out of reach.

Blake Madison noted all this as he slid through the back door unnoticed. Like a cat, he crept up on Swann, and reached into the pocket of his trench coat. Silently, he slid the object out and pressed it against Swann's jugular while clamping his left palm over his mouth."Happy Birthday Swanno", he said,"Wear it in good health." Then he dropped the object on the table, vanishing out the back door. Swan ripped the Sunday Funnies wrapping paper away and opened the slender box. Inside lay a hand-painted navy-blue neck tie sporting a pink nude with blonde hair and red lips. Beneath it, Madison had scrawled with a fountain pen "to Swan on his Bday...thanks for teaching me everything I know...BM". He put it on slowly, tying an elaborate windsor knot. Her bear-slippers whispering aagainst the linoleum, PJ entered the room. This, he thought to himself, is going to take some explaining. She put her lips very close to his ear and whispered "Happy Birthday Baby...meet me in the bedroom." She walked slowly away, then turned and said "and you can leave your tie on."

Happy Birthday Bud
