Just wanted to be the first to wish my favorite friend of many, many years a happy birthday. It's hard to find the right words to say so I'll just let all of you say them for me. Happy Birthday my dear friend and many, many more.

love,
k

It's an honour to be even an occasional part of the same forum as yourself. Many, many happy returns.

All of the best wishes for a Happy Birthday Sandy, It was one of the Highlights of the Getaway for me, to meet you and Caroline, I didnt get much chance to talk to you, but managed some time with Caroline, and it was lovely to do so,. The Only Folk Legacy anniversary Baseball cap east of the Atlantic ( Big Mick Gave me his!!!) is worn regularly to events here in the UK!! and much admired!! Many thanks to you for what you do so well, Micca

I generally try to make the birthday threads different because Joe just hates the repetitious HBD stuff.......But in your case Sandy, all the good thoughts and warm wishes that have been and will be expressed will more than cover it....because you are one of the special people, only special wishes will be seen here. Let me include mine and say what a wonderful influence you have been to me and so many others.

Happy Birthday Folk Fogey..........and many more!

Hi, Sandy: Somehow, Happy Birthday doesn't seem quite enough to wish you. It has a nice ring to it, but "Happy" doesn't sound strong enough. Have a JOYFUL Birthday,have a Memorable birthday, Have a Renewing Birthday, Have a Invigorating Birthday... you get the idea. You and Caroline have been the dearest of friends through the brighest and the darkest of days. Some friends are Crossroad Friends... Friends you meet along the way who share the road with you until the next Crossroad, and you head off in different directions. They to are blessings. But the two of you have never turned off at a crossroad. I imagine that we will travel the road together as long as we can put one foot in front of the other.

Much love,

Jerry and Ruth

Don't you just hate it when some of these youngstas think it great that we've made it this far. The journey is what is great and yours is certainly a wonderful one. Birthdays are just mile markers. It is the stuff in between that makes it all worthwhile.

I thank all of you for the kind thoughts and wishes. It was rich r that really nailed it, I must admit. Off now, hauling my decrepit, creaking, antiquated body down to the post office, with a handful of orders to post, trusting that there will be "no returns." Bless y'all!

Sandy, as my Polish Dziadek used to say, "Sto lat!" ("100 Years!" to be accompanied by a toast of Zubrowka or Slivovitz) Although Dzia-dzia only reached his nineties, I am fully confident that with liberal application of the appropriate Polish remedies, augmented with all the good wishes of your friends and fellow Catters, that you will celebrate many, many more b'days to come!

love, Mary

For the uninitiated, Slivovitz has been described thusly: "Slivovitz" when literally translated into "Plum Brandy" may lend a refined connotation and allow you think of a fruity aperitif. The national moonshine of most Eastern European countries, this clear deadly liquor is always served in petite glasses. Nowadays, slivovitz comes in a round bottle shaped like a thick coin or like a large perfume decanter; some say because it is reminiscent of the shape of a plum, some say because even a bottle can't stand up straight if slivovitz is inside.

and Zubrowka thusly: Zubrowka, the infamous Polish vodka, was banned in the U.S. by the Bureau of Tobacco, Alcohol and Firearms in1978 for having the essence of bison grass in its makeup. Any product containing the extract of bison grass was banned because the BATF determined that a chemical in the extract was the source of a drug that thinned the blood. The grass reportedly came from the pastures where bison grazed. Bison grass has been reputed to enhance sexual prowess, has customarily been utilized as a flavoring agent in tobacco, candy and soft drinks and has been viewed as having medicinal attributes.

Seemed to work for my grandpa!

Sandy, I beg to differ, Spaw nailed—for me at least. But I also hope your business prospers.

lararca, I tried to recommend Zubrowka to Joe for his Polish wedding but of course it was to be a non-alcoholic affair. But what you didn't know is that zubrowka is aparantly legal now.

Drink up!

Hello Sandy, It's been a long time since we've been together, but I remember you fondly. I still think of Fox Hollow, the gazebo and the rain. (I recently hooked up with Herb and Betty in California). I wish you a joyful birthday celebration. You are one of the good guys.

I will violate my boycott of birthday threads for very few people. A Sandy Paton birthday is a musically significant occasion and a reasonable exception, dontchathink? Happy birthday, Sandy. You mean a lot to me. Thanks for all you've taught me.
