We've been friends for so many years and our friendship remains. Life would not have nearly as much zest and zeal without you in my life. You have always accepted me for exactly who I am despite all my quirks and foibles and shortcomings. (or maybe because of?) You understand me even when you don't understand me or I don't even understand myself. I love you my friend, and am grateful that you continue to be in my life.
All the monkeys in the zoo are singing just for you: Happy Birthday you little chimp, eek, eek!
