8.   Happy (Special) Birthday Jock! Fortunately the word leaked out, and Sheldon and
     I are delighted to be able to add our congratulations to those that are
     accumulating. The Danish celebrate birthdays with enthusiasm - from the first

     wishing you all the best. Addressing someone with a name like Jock McTavish, we
     feel safe in closing by quoting Robbie Burns:
                        "Now sir, if ye hae friends enow,
                        Tho' real friends, I b'lieve, are few,
                        Yet, if your catalogue be fow,
                        I'se no insist,
                        But gif ye want ae friend that's true,
                        I'm on your list!"
     All the best on your birthday, and the year ahead! ~ Marjorie and Sheldon

13. Senility Prayer:
     God, grant me the Senility

     To tell the difference.

    60 th, we give thanks for your friendship and ask God to bless you with happiness
    and health for many years to come. The second magnet is “He who sings prays
    twice.” We know that both these practices are part of your life’s agenda. May
    they too be the channels of God’s blessings. We rejoice with you as you celebrate
    today and we send our greetings to all. ~ Love Don and Isobel.
