68 Today

January 26, 2011

No, that is not the egg count but the number of years I have been blessed to live so far. Once I looked forward to making it to 21 but today I look forward to reaching 126.

You have a great day and treat yourself to some cake.

Carlos Royal

P.S. This morning I looked into the wishing well and there I saw a young man, a knight in shining armor… Hey, I can wish can’t I.

    Happy B-Day! Carlos, I would like to set up two owl boxes just for personal viewing. I have a home in Sarasota, FL and Orlando. Would you be interested in bartering your services to provide instructions on how to get the boxes all setup. In exchange, I can give you a vacation at my Orlando resort and also a week or two in Sarasota. Also, I could buy the equipment you are no longer using.

    Happy Bday Carlos!!! Today is also my birthday (Rhonda- 49) and my daughter’s as well (Jade is 13)…..

    Sir Carlos Royal – (To the tune of Camlot) It’s true! It’s true! Our Royals made it clear…Molly’s Box, Molly’s Box…. In short, there’s simply not A more congenial spot For happily-ever-aftering than here in Molly’s Box (because of Carlos’ magic touch!)

    You have lived a good life, learned from your younger days, and can put on your well-worn armor when needed. When you look in the mirror of our comments, the smiles upon our faces, and the glow in our hearts, you know that you would not trade that wish for “youth and shining armor” for the wonderful gift that was given to you and that you shared with the world from your birthday in 2010 to now – It just so happens that 68 is Great!

    Today is a day for Celebration of Being Part of Life on Planet Earth on this 26th day of January in the Year of 2011! Because of you, Carlos, we can all say with conviction, Molly’s Motto, “Gee this is fun, and we are a part of it!”

    I would normally say to one of my friends to remember to do something fun since it is your birthday. Something tells me you learned many years ago how to MAKE LIFE fun. So I think you have always known to have fun. So just plain old Happy Birthday to you.
    My book came today – you should not have given ME such a nice gift on YOUR birthday! I/we (everybody at work) loved it. The photos were wonderful and what Eric wrote was perfect.
    Thanks for all the fun and HBD 2U

  216. Pat Says:

    Instead of counting candles,
    Or tallying the years,
    Contemplate your blessings now,
    As your birthday nears.

    Consider special people
    Who love you, and who care,
    And others who’ve enriched your life
    Just by being there.

    Think about the memories
    Passing years can never mar,
    Experiences great and small
    That have made you who you are.

    Another year is a happy gift,
    So cut your cake, and say,
    “Instead of counting birthdays,
    I count blessings every day!”

  217. Sonia Lopez Says:

  239. joly2u Says:

    Many healthy, happy returns, Carlos. The image in the wishing well suits you, you do so much for others. I think you have some of Mother Teresa’s secret: she always said not to try to do great things, but do small things with great love. I would add, that then they can lead to great results.

  240. Lisa Says:

    Most people, at any age, have not touched their world as you have in bringing hearts together with love and laughter and appreciation and tears and fears and joy and hope and beauty and magic… May you always feel richly blessed by the genuine affection and deep gratitude all of us sane followers have for you, and the gift you gave us of the Owl Box and Molly’s family.

    A very Happy Birthday to you Carlos!

  241. Deb Bloom Says:
