I can't really remember any foreign languages, so here's my whitebread birthday wishes:

Many, many years, Tom! (aka. Mr. Grumpy-Pants [how's that for juvenile?  Grin])

Happy Birthday, Tom!!

(You probably don't want the Birthday song that is to the tune of the "Volga Boatman. Cheesy)

All the Best!

Everybody sing:

God grant him many years!
God grant him many years!
God grant him many, many, many years!

(You know we Orthodox have to do everything in triplicate, as this verse would be sung 3 times)

Happy Birthday...here's an uplifting song for you:

Quote
Once a year we celebrate
With stupid hats and plastic plates
The fact that you were able to make
Another trip around the sun

And the whole clan gathers round
And gifts and laughter do abound
And we let out a joyful sound
And sing that stupid song

Happy birthday!
Now you're one year older!
Happy birthday!
Your life still isn't over!
Happy birthday!
You did not accomplish much
But you didn't die this year
I guess that's good enough

So let's drink to your fading health
And hope you don't remind yourself
The chance of finding fame and wealth
Decrease with every year

Does it feel like you're doing laps
And eating food and taking naps
And hoping that someday perhaps
Your life will hold some cheer

Happy birthday!
What have you done that matters?
Happy birthday!
You're starting to get fatter
Happy birthday!
It's downhill from now on
Try not to remind yourself
Your best years are all gone

If cryogenics were all free
Then you could live like Walt Disney
And live for all eternity
Inside a block of ice

But instead your time is set
This is the only life you get
And though it hasn't ended yet
Sometimes you wish it might

Happy birthday!
You wish you had more money
Happy birthday!
Your life's so sad it's funny
Happy birthday!
How much more can you take?
But your friends are hungry
So just cut the stupid cake
Happy birthday!
Happy birthday!

Thank you all so very, very much for your kind wishes!

I love you guys, man!  :inlove:

Many years Tom (and are you still coming to visit?)

We are leaving for Greece on Sept 2nd and staying until the 23rd. We have not solidified our plans yet because now that Niki is pregnant, all of her family over there wants us to come visit them. Greeks are great about that stuff!

Happy birthday and many years Tom!

Well, if David's going to post that song, I guess I can add one verse of this one


The Mongols Birthday Song or The Birthday Dirge
Tune: Volga Boatmen

Happy Birthday!! <uh!!>
Happy Birthday!! <uh!!>
May the candles on  your cake
Burn like cities in your wake.
Happy Birthday!! <uh!!>
Happy Birthday!! <uh!!>

Tom, I hate to ruin your birthday, but I hope you don't have your heart set on that first grade picture. There is talk among the Administration about holding you back in Kindergarten for a bit longer. They said you are bright, but not quite as mature as some of the other kids. Grin
