Birthday in the Land of Pooka

(Charlie and Pooka)

Way across the pond, in a land far, far away, there lived a beautiful young princess named Charlie. Charlie roamed the lands near and far--skiing their slopes, lying on their beaches, and making friends all over. Then one day, she jumped onto Blogger, and soon a new alliance was born. She was able to visit lands and make friends in places that she wasn't necessarily able to visit. She used strange words and phrases and endeared herself to those she met. And all was right in the world.

Over time, Princess Charlie shared pictures of her land (Pookalookaville), her travels and her family. And best of all, of herself and her dolphins. When she was goofy or sad or happy or jumping on beds. And the friends were happy. But not all was rosy in Charlie's world. She thought her pictures were less than acceptable. She thought she was a bad person. And worst of all, her beloved father was getting sicker.

Charlie has a birthday today. She thinks she's too old to celebrate it. And granted, things aren't all skittles and beer these days. But I told her we weren't going to let her get away with that. Go over now and wish her good thoughts and a happy birthday! I know she'll love it!

Happy Birthday, Charlie! We love ya!
