Well, I suppose that even when you neglect to invite someone like that, who's going to deny him/her/it entry? Could be worse... it could be Cthulhu!

GORGEOUS. Love the lighting, the atmosphere, the colors, water and that octopus is wonderful. I need to book my reservation. It would be wonderful dancing the rumba under the stars with this guy. Or with you for that matter. Happy 39th and here's to many more years. You never cease to amaze me. Your artwork is all brilliant. : ) Water is definitely your element. Keep up the celebration for at least a few more days. 10 +++
