    Howdy Pards,

    Well, there he is...all these years later...standin' by Walt's side...lookin' off in the distance and dreamin'...

    I wonder how many children that mouse has hugged over all these years?

    That mouse brought laughter into the lives of folks who were in the middle of a great depression...a World War...a cold war...

    "Just a little personality assigned to the purposes of laughter." that's how Walt described Mickey.

    Could there truly be any higher calling in the world?

    I have watched as children, trembling with joy, ran into that mouse's arms with smiles to be cherished for a lifetime. Makin' many millions of wonderful, delightful, joy-filled memories.

    And, I was one of those kids who hurried home after school back in the 1950' enjoy
    an episode of the classic, original Mickey Mouse Club...

    So...what do you give a mouse that has brought so much joy and happiness into your world for 84 happy years? What so many millions have given him over the years I suppose...our love.

    Happy Birthday Mickey...and...uh...gosh...thanks Uncle Walt...

    "Forever let us hold our banner high..."

    Adios for now. Talk to ya on down the trail.

    I can see the campfires smokin’ at the breaking of the dawn,
    I can hear the bronco's neighin', I can hear the cowboys sing,
    I'd like to be in Texas for the Round-up in the Spring."
