Happy Birthday Carlos!

Yup. It's today.

Carlos' birthday, and, as he would tell it, like Vera Charles, he is somewhere between forty.....and death. But, he doesn't get to tell it. I do, because it's my blog and I'll write about him if I want to....


I am constantly amazed by Carlos. I learn something new about him, from him, every day. His hasn't always been the easiest path; he's had more ups and downs than a power top at an all-night orgy, but he moves on with a smile. He's endured things and overcome things that would break a lesser man, but he does it a laugh and, perhaps, a little sashay that would make RuPaul green with envy.


He has a smirk that makes me swoon.

He has a way with words that makes me feel like a dizzy redhead.
He has a heart and passion for life that is unmatched.

So, here we are, celebrating his birthday for the fourteenth time together, and I am looking forward to fourteen more, and fourteen more, and fourteen more.


I love you, Carlos, for who you were, and who you are, and who you will be.


Happy Birthday, Baby, and if they ask, I won't tell.


And, rather than singing that old tired birthday tune, I'll end with a little John Barrowman, and I Am What I Am because Carlos is what he is, and it's the only way he'll have it.


Happy Birthday, Husband ....

Happy happy day to you, sir.

Oh, and Vera Charles? "If I kept my hair natural like you I'd be bald."

All hail and many happy ones to C on this auspicious day. May he continue to be your anchor, Bob, for evermore - and then a little longer after that.
Both of you have a lovely day now.
