¡Feliz cumpleaños, Toño!

Always a day after México's, we can celebrate Toño's birthday. But unlike México, which celebrated its bicentennial day of independence, Toño has got to celebrate a prime number birthday.

When I consider every thing that grows
Holds in perfection but a little moment,
That this huge stage presenteth nought but shows
Whereon the stars in secret influence comment;
When I perceive that men as plants increase,
Cheered and cheque'd even by the self-same sky,
Vaunt in their youthful sap, at height decrease,
And wear their brave state out of memory;
Then the conceit of this inconstant stay
Sets you most rich in youth before my sight,
Where wasteful Time debateth with Decay,
To change your day of youth to sullied night;
And all in war with Time for love of you,
As he takes from you, I engraft you new.
–- Sonnet 15 by William Shakespeare

Happy Birthday Toño. Have a great day :-)

You have to wait another four years for the next prime birthday so make the most of this one.

Urs, what a beautiful dedication to your dear husband.

Dear Tono, I hope you are having a very happy and glorious birthday - and how could you not be with Urs there to share it all and celebrate with you.

Sending you each and both much care and love, and many huggles, Michelle xxxx
