From Grandma Joyce:
YEAaa, our Gardenangel has made the feat of making another year here on old mother earth. During this year she has given many laughs & smiles to many of us along with hours of help to friends in making homepages & sharing anything she knows to help them. ...........HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my little SISTER IN HEART.............
"happy birthday Linda....you're not getting older...just better"... Marv..
by Shel Silverstein
Ol’ man Simon, planted a diamond,
Grew hisself a garden the likes of none.
Sprouts all growin’, comin’ up glowin’,
Fruit of jewels all shinin’ in the sun.
Colors of the rainbow,
See the sun and rain grow
Sapphires and rubies on ivory vines,
Grapes of jade, just
Ripenin’ in the shade, just
Ready for the squeezin’ into green jade wine.
Pure gold corn there,
Blowin’ in the warm air,
Ol’ crow niblin’ on the amnythyst seeds.
In between the diamonds, ol’ man Simon
Crawls about pullin’ out platinum weeds.
Pink pearl berries,
All you can carry,
Put ‘em in a bushel and
Haul ‘em into town.
Up in the tree there’s
Opal nuts and gold pears--
Hurry quick, grab a stick
And shake some down.
Take a silver tater,
Fresh plump coral melons
Hangin’ in reach.
Ol’ man Simon,
Diggin’ in his diamonds,
Stops and rest and dreams about
One. . . real . . . peach.
I hope you have more HAPPY BIRTHDAYS than you will ever know what to do with. LOL!
I hope you will have a nice and great birthday you never will forget.
For me Linda you are a very special friend who always had been there.
and I am so Lucky to have you as my friend. I wish you very,very,very happy birthday;
just to let you know the day angels were born you was one of them. Love you
feliz cumleanos my dearest friend.
Happy Birthday gardenangel!! I haven't been in the Garden for awhile, but I do remember you and your angel sculptures. Just wanted to wish you a happy b-day. Spend it any way you want. ENJOY!!! Noelle
Happy Birthday Sis do not know how I deserved such a angel for a Sister but sure glad that I have you as sister and friend :-)Love Ya Mouse
From Abcat VIA zimelza:
Furry faces now appear
Grinning widely ear to ear
Tails up high and waving proudly
Everyone is purring loudly,
"We're the ones who love you best",
Say Abner, Alvin and the rest,
Miss Molly and Monkey Deux,
Send their loving thoughts to you.
Patience, little table cat,
Says you can be sure of that.
Little furry guys you love,
You're their angel from above.
(And it will be a thousand pities,
If you don't save some cake for kitties!)
The angel in our Garden,
Chat advisor, homepage consultant,
Time, talent, wisdom freely given.
Defender of mischievous boys,
Armed with her wicked wit instead of a sword,
And wielding an evil grin!
Maker of magic, teller of tales,
Brave and bountiful, beloved friend,
And rubberstamping fool!
Happy birthday, dear Gardenangel,
With love from Zimelza
A Great Big Birthday Wish to the
"Angel of the Garden"
Evening gathers... Stars appear...
Friends come in... Their thoughts to share.
Some stay for awhile... Some are here long...
One is steady and true... And knows where she belongs.
She gives us laughter... And shares our tears...
A heart of gold... To hold us all.
We enjoy her trips... Dumpster diving's a treat...
The little blue truck... And Abner too.
So angel don't leave us... You'd be sorely missed...
Who would we turn to... With a question like this.
Evening gathers... Stars appear...
Oh, look everyone... gardenangel is here!!

I wish you all the joys and riches you could possible want, but you are already rich beyond dreams, as you have many people who love you for the kind and loving person that you are. I wish you the best Day possible. Lady Gould

From Danger Cat:
Dearest Garden Angel, You were one of my first chat room buddies and will forever be my Cyber Sis! Thanks for all the helps and all the laughs! I'm glad that you've gotten another year older, concidering the alternative. *G* Love ya lots!! Danger Cat.
From Delta Two:
Happy Birthday my dear Gardenangel! Big Huggs and Thank You's for all you do for the Garden and it's population. Your daily entertainment in our email boxes is the highlight of the day. Have a Great Birthday! I tried to send cyber money but when the mint called I just said never mind....... I think I see a tiny spot on this shelf that a few rubberstamps might fit on!
From Steven Lim:
Linda, it has been my pleasure knowing you. Here's wishing you a happy birthday!
there's a place in the sky
where all the dreams rise
and the sun
makes your wishes
it's the birthday-place,
and your dreams go there
when you wish
on a rising balloon.
if you want to give it a try,
just close your eyes
and make a wish,
as birthday-dreamers do.
and as the balloons go by
like the years,
remember the sky. . .

Sincere Best Wishes on your birthday GA
From Munchie & Andres:
Dearest GA, Happy Birthday! To know you is a very special treat. To see you in person, is another. To hear you online is another. You truly are very special. You are one of a kind.
The night we met you was something else, so warm & loving, meeting strangers for the first time. Your arms were wide open to receive us. We are so happy that you have blessed our lives. You have taught us how to share via E-mail our thoughts & feelings. Oh my goodness, I can feel your wings right now as I type. I have the biggest smile on my face as I think of you.. Now before we say goodnight, let Abcat know, that besides your cake a HUGE lobster is coming his way, he must share tho! LOL
HAPPY BIRTHDAY GARDENANGEL!
Oops, one more thing I want to share with you & everyone. One night online, I asked Gardenangel about her angel gif. Do you know she gave it to me!!! Wow. I told her I would take good care of her and I did. One night when you were up North visiting grandma, I wanted to pay a tribute to you. I couldn't get her up, so Dustie gave me the url. There you came, bright & beautiful for everyone to see. I've only used her twice. Thank you for sharing my friend.
Lots of love, hugs & best wishes on this your special day.
