Why? Because it's only polite when you come to call at Napple Mansions. Tomorrow, 16th March, I will need help to blow out the seventy candles that will be adorning my tiny cup cake.
A year ago, I gave Blogpals fair warning that I would be expecting a little rhyme written for the occasion, which would then give them the right come to my party as an honoured guest.
I'm thinking it will be a rather extended affair, and I envisage it going on for the best part of a week, while I wait for your muse to strike.... I think I should start the ball rolling...
Amid the bombs in '41 I came into the world.
But now I want to celebrate, so get the flags unfurled!
String 'em all round Blogland, red and white and blue,
and please come to my party - yes, you , and you, and you!
Write a little ditty, but not TOO rude , I pray,
and help me live it up a bit on my special day!
