Awwww. Everyone is being so sweet over at the blog today. I'm a little teary. :)

Happy birthday to you too, Bill, and I hope we'll both have many more years to hash over haiku together. :)

Very fine one. And: is there a litte bit of self-irony in this haibun-like haiku-post, Bill? I read it three times and found five ways to understand (then I stopped and kept smiling on my way to my comment ;-).

Best wishes
Ralf
