Nelson Mandela celebrates 90 years of age!

Many Happy Returns of the Day, Mr. Mandela.
You fight so hard for freedom
because you suffered its removal for so many years.
We have no idea. We think we do, but we don't.
You inspire us to learn, grow, and know.

He's three days early. How dare he celebrate so early?

(twenty-seven years in hard labor prison for being a vocal black man. EVERYDAY should be his birthday. Heck! From his perspective everyday IS his birthday!)

So....I was over at Foams bugging her blog before her relatives start hitting the front steps.....
heard you needed someone to clean your bath tub at three AM?
OK, well, it's short notice, but, I think Fifi can be there around 3:15.
Is that too late?
Should she be in uniform?
