I can't believe it! Can't put it off any longer. I do hope you ALL sent her roses. Not a single mention, not a single Salute. The woman works her heart out every day, not only for Gord, but for us! She writes, scans, organizes and surprises us seemingly all her waking hours with something unique. She authors an epic story worthy of publication, within 24 hours, for our benefit because we "couldn't make it". She answers every question she can, no matter how obvious or obscure, for anyone here who asks. She researches and provides us with links to save us time, or more likely, because we wouldn't otherwise bother. She bares her soul and opens her heart in a way most would never dare.

I have never met her, never talked with her and likely never will. Yet, I feel like I've known her twenty years.

Spare the shovel, Fezo, this one comes from the heart. I mean what I write, there are no LOLs here.

I hope you all sent her roses!

Happy 45th Char!

And, Char,
Well, I didn't send you roses, but I sent you a T-shirt that seemed to stand you in good stead. Does that count?

Stay loose, eh?

Happy Birthday to my favorite Canadien Kook!!!

Your dedication as well as your tenderness in your posts are gratifying. Let us all be thankful you have found this wonderful site. Though it has been short, none the less, it has been a very enjoyable time, to say the least. My most heartfelt thoughts go out to you and may you have many more birthdays like this one, and at the same time, continue to deliver your timely and uplifting posts. It has been an honor as well as a pleasure to have known you. You have meant a lot to me, as well as my family.

Wes

Char - as I said elsewhere, hope your birthday today is as good as Saturday was, in every way. Cheers to us forty-somethings: we know where it's at! Happy, Happy Birthday!

Well, I wished you a happy birthday earlier elsewhere, but I'd really look like a heel if my name didn't show up here as well. So, what was that huge glow on the horizon I saw to the north? What? Surely not all those lit candles on your cake!(LOL)
BTW, I echo all the comments of those before me who are more eloquent with words than myself could ever be. Believe us when we say you're special!

Charlene,
I must say that in the short time which I have known you online you have proven to be a wonderfully kind soul. I hope you have the best Birthday ever!

Char,
I also want to wish you a Happy Birthday, I'm 45 also, and life sure does get better with age, so thank you for all the time and effort you spend updating all of us Gord-lovers, with that same old obsession. Have a good day!

Dear Char, Many happy belated birthday wishes to someone who I only met a week or so ago. Thank you for all the many things you have shared with me. What a wonderful present you had this past weekend.

Please accept a birthday greeting from a relative newcomer. Really enjoyed reading your tome on meeting Gord; gave me some good insight about the real person behind the music I love. I'm crossing the river to 45 years old in November-hope the water is still nice . . .
