    Great Scott

    Hi Ann, I thought I would make a separate thread here so that everyone could post their Birthday wishes to you. What a shame we all can’t get together today and celebrate your Birthday in style with lots of love, laughter and lots of downright awesome singing and fiddling!
    Hi Ann! Auguri di Buon Compleanno! / Happy Birthday!…you sweet young thing! 🙂

    Ann, please don’t make jokes and pretend you are older than what you really are. You can’t trick us into believing that you are 72 years old when we all know you are really only 36!… but good try!

    I didn’t have time to whip up a cake for you, so my Birthday wishes to you are in this video clip. I hope you have an absolutely wonderful and most memorable day.

    So seize the day and make the most of it! You go for it girl! You deserve it! 🙂

    We are going to have to create a Birthday list so we can celebrate everyone’s Birthday when it comes along.

    Uncle John is having his Birthday on April 21, so there should be a right awesome party happening to celebrate it in grand old southern style! He will be 35 years old. 🙂

    Great Scott,  Guess what, you and John have made my birthday happy to the extreme.  I hope there is no fine for getting too happy. LOL  I love your video. It’s so cute and I enjoy reggae music very much.
