Oh, father Christmas, do tell us true. Do fish have birthdays? Why yes, of course, little Virginia, fish have birthdays every year just like you do! And they have little fishy cakes and yummy fishy ice cream and even little fishy presents too! What's that you say? You know a fish who's 51 years old today?????? My goodness, Virginia, that's a pretty old fish. Someone must be taking very good care of that particular fish. Yes, father Christmas, there IS someone taking very good care of that fish. And not just one someone, but many someones! One shoos him off to bed, one spanks his bottom when he misbehaves, and one talks to him every day and that makes everyone very happy, father Christmas. And you know what's really cool, father Christmas? He reads US stories!! Yes, really, he does, he does. Wonderful stories and they make us feel all warm and gushy inside, just like we're all teddy bears or something. We love our fishy more than any other fish in the whole wide world. And his birthday is just the best day of the year! After all, it's the day he was born into this world and that was a very happy day indeed. Happy Birthday, little fish. I love you.

They do? Oh yes, of COURSE they do! Hmmmm, but what do you get as a present for a little fish that has EVERYTHING? I guess heart congratulations will have to suffice until such time as I can make a decision on that front..... I send a very Happy Birthday greeting to the little fish with the heart of a whale!

VERY well said, James! The little fish with the heart of a whale. So true, so true. And I think that this particular present, from all of us, is going to more than suffice. He's gonna love it. It'll touch that big whale heart of his. Love ya, Jamesy. Kisses, baby. And kisses to the wife too, please.

My little bundle of Nova. What can I say. I am humbled. You are so sweet and kind. I am so very fortunate in all my friends here. You have touched my heart and I don't deserve half the good things that you've said. But I'm glad that you said them anyway! Love you to pieces. XXXX

You, my dear, deserve all the good things in the world! You are, after all, the very best. What's that Tina Turner song? Oh yeah, I remember, it's You're Simply The Best. Hmmm, must have been written for you, p1key darling. XXXX
