...Yup, a day late and a dollar short for this one. The ship is currently in the shop for repairs. Meanwhile, the blimp has escaped it's moorings and is flying aimlessly around in circles overhead. So, the Captain and crew are stuck on Beeristan while the birthday girl is sitting in Philly eating cheese steak sandwiches all alone.

While the crew tries to figure out how to retrieve the blimp, they do what they do for every celebration. The captain hopes the signal from Radio Beeristan is strong enough to reach Pennsylvania...

"Don't worry about a thing,
'Cause every little thing gonna be all right.
Singin': "Don't worry about a thing,
'Cause every little thing gonna be all right!"

Rise up this mornin',
Smiled with the risin' sun,
Three little birds
Pitch by my doorstep
Singin' sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true,
Sayin', "This is my message to you-ou-ou:"

Singin': "Don't worry 'bout a thing,
'Cause every little thing gonna be all right."
Singin': "Don't worry (don't worry) 'bout a thing,
'Cause every little thing gonna be all right!"

Rise up this mornin',
Smiled with the risin' sun,
Three little birds
Pitch by my doorstep
Singin' sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true,
Sayin', "This is my message to you-ou-ou:"

Singin': "Don't worry about a thing, worry about a thing, oh!
Every little thing gonna be all right. Don't worry!"
Singin': "Don't worry about a thing" - I won't worry!
"'Cause every little thing gonna be all right."

HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY HOLLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here's hoping you had a wonderful day (July 6th) filled with family, friends, food and lots of drinks! Please accept this customized Beeristani vuvuzela to add to your collection. Did Graham serenade you South Africa style? ;)

...And, with that, the Captain joins the crew in their rather scatter-brained efforts to bring the blimp back down to earth. This may take awhile...

hey guys, thanks for all the well wishes!!! it was a wonderful day, and i got these great little ice tray, shot glass moulds so i could enjoy an ice cold limoncello in a solid ice shot glass in the crazy 40+ degree heat!

isa, there is a story behind that bob marley song (doesn't every one have a story for this song?) that destined me for a south african future. When I was about 12 at summer camp, there was a south african refugee working there. he loaned me all his bob marley tapes to listen to on my walkman...can't remember how i started up a friendship with him. He must have been in his mid-20s. Anyway, he had exodus set up to play "three little birds" for me when i first played the tape.

Sam, did you have any doubt that the netherlands would make it? That stadium was packed with South African supporters behind the team, even soccer city has orange seats!!!

thanks again everyone! i truly appreciate you remembering me!
