Happy Birthday to the third most important man in my life - after my husband, LC, and oh son, my grandsons, my sons-in-law - you know what I mean. I have the highest regard and affection for you, for being the the wonderful, beautiful gentleman that you are and for taking the time years ago to fiddle with your computer and combine it with your love of LC - look what you have wrought - this place that has become a second home for so many of us. You have provided us with a place to discuss, debate, vent, learn, bare our souls, and thoroughly enjoy ourselves. There is no other place like the files and the forum. Thank you, thank you, thank you a bazillion times!

May you enjoy many more years filled with health, happiness, peace, and always be surrounded by those you love and who love you.

May we have many more opportunities to be able to lift our glasses together and toast our friendships and LC.

Happy, happy birthday Jarrko!!!

Warmest regards,

Happy Birthday Jarkko! :D 60 years young - you have to agree don't you?! ;-)

Thanks so much for being what you are to us all & with such patience & grace! 8)

Have a fabulous day tomorrow! When we read that Leonard has a Gent/Ghent performance on your birthday, what we all read between the lines is that it is a private concert for our one & only Cohenista Gent (that's you), so enjoy it! :razz:

Okay, take care & have a great year - we will all continue to enjoy having you as our number one guide through all things Cohen! :D

Warmest regards,
Andrew :)

Happy 60th and many Happy returns. 1950 was a good year for Leonard fans-- :D
I celebrated your birthday by skiing in a snow storm one day and riding my bicycle the next. I think your birthday happens somewhere in between Saturday and Sunday in Australia, which is where I am for now. I will be joining you with 60 in November. We can still do it!!! My messages are still being posted on Edmonton time :o
