Greetings,

Heheh... I got through that one undercover quite nicely. 8-)

It was actually yesterday and it was a really nice day.

:thanks:

Metta,
Retro. :)

happy birthday to you, Retro!
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

Happy Birthday! One year closer to parinibbana?

For your birthday I purchased you an imaginary trip on a glorious 1930's retro-futuristic flying boat.

Then,
saturated with joy,
you will put an end to suffering and stress.
