Happy Birthday Heather!

Not from successful love alone,
Nor wealth, nor honored middle age, nor vic-
tories of politics or war.
But as life wanes, and all the turbulent passions
As gorgeous, vapory, silent hues cover the even-
ing sky,
As softness, fulness, rest, suffuse the spirit and
frame like freshier, balmier air;
As the days take on a mellower light, and the
apple at last hangs really finished and in-
dolent ripe on the tree,
Then for the teeming quietest, happiest days of
The brooding and blissful halcyon days!
—Walt Whitman.

I hope you have a good one! Thanks to the magic of time zones, you get a two day birthday!

Thank you so much, San Nakji. That was super sweet of you. You are the first one to say Happy Birthday to me. It's pretty cool that I get birthday wishes twice because of the magic of time zones!!

Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart. I luv ya mucho too!! *HUGS*

Philadelphia has a bridge named after Walt Whitman.

And don't worry. US of Andy TV Will be back soon (ish) And if you really miss it (I mean who won't) You can look it up straight on Mogulus.
