    A Very Happy Fifth Birthday. I wish I could be there. But living in England it’s a little too far for now. But may I Thank Word Press for giving me the chance of putting my thoughts on the World Wide Web. Though not many people have read my blog. It’s an amazing 580 more than ever would have done. Thank You. Good luck for the future. Malctg. The Foureyed Poet.
