Hike Harder Tillerman

They say it's your birthday
It's my birthday too, yeah

They say it's your birthday

We're gonna have a good time

I'm glad it's your birthday
Happy birthday to you.

Happy Birthday George. Yeah it's our shared birthday again already. Came around fast didn't it?

It's been a great year for me, thanks for asking George. Two fabulous sailing trips to Menorca in October and Cabarete in January. Then the London Marathon in April and a half-marathon in Boston in May. More significantly we had something of a surge to achieve one of our long-standing objectives, to move to a new home near the water in Rhode Island. Took us a bit longer than we had expected but we can now say with conviction, "Mission Accomplished".

How was your year George? You had a surge too? Things taking a tad longer than expected as well? Good luck. Let us know how it turns out. Soon please.

I hear you were in the area last week. I don't think I received an invitation to your speech in Newport on Thursday. You had a tour of the tall ships? Wow, what a coincidence, so did I. You and Laura should drop by next time you are in Rhode Island. I know you like clearing brush so you can give me a hand with the back yard.

So have a great day Mr. President. I hear you're thinking of retiring soon. You should.

And thanks for the advice. I should hike harder. At least you're right about that. But today I'm just going to relax and enjoy my birthday.

...and if you can't hike harder, at least sail smarter. The wisdom of age...

Best wishes

Yeah. Apparently you Americans have this thing called the CONST-TIT-TUTION written a gazillion years ago that among other things says that slaves only count as three-fifths of a white person and you can't be president unless you were born here.

How unreasonable. It means that the Terminator and the Tillerman (not to mention a couple of recent Secretaries of State) are second-class citizens and have less chance of being president than Paris Hilton.
