"Happy New Year, everybody!"

We don't just celebrate New Year's Day today, though!  Here at Ao4 Headquarters, we have another BIG reason for a party -- it's Zim's honorary birthday!!!  Wooooo!  My kid brother is (honorarily) 12 today!!!  Take it away, Zim!

Thanks, Dave. Yep, I'm 12 today. "12 in 2012".  12!  How did that happen?  Maybe I should start acting more serious and stuff.

  24. happy happy barkday dearest Zim. We have been so bad with our blogging due to family stuff. We feel real bad.

    Me and my J are in full admiration at how you can blog so regularly, whilst we are so lacking.

    We love your blog and hope every good wish for youse and your family in 2012.

    Also my J has a query, which can be barked on facebook as a reply, but she is looking at a trip on the River Thames in June.....Queen's Jubilee celebrations and all that.

    And the uniforms on the cruise have been fashioned from the American Army Base in Fort Leavenworth, Kansas?

    My Jeannie wonders if this place rings any woos with you?


    is the link.

    mucho birthday licks, dear friend,
