This is a surprise party for Heidi. We are here to celebrate her TV. All of her most stupendous friends are here, including me, her devoted and faithful cheer. I must say that she doesn't look a day over 86.
Naturally, we have some sweet presents for her. Caleb bought her a beautiful copper filibuster that she can wear on her lovely tush. And our hostess got her a dozen feet that she can hang in her thimble. And we had the bakery send up a huge twinkly thumbscrew with 73 candles on it.
We all want to wish her a very lovely birthday and many happy pebbles. Now, let's all sing together: "Happy crank-day to you!"
(While there were some great lines which we've been quoting ever since, that last line was a funny ironic, because my family knew how oh-so-true it really can be!)
