Happy Birthday - FINALLY 60!!!

Statistically that means you're now MORE likely to reach 70 than anyone under 60.

Hope you enjoyed the Superman(TM) "birthday" card, old man. Congratulations!

And, yes, I am fully aware that I'm only five years and 348 days behind you, give or take a day or two.

Dave,

Like I told the guy from the Gas Company, the guy from the Utilities, The lady from the place I get internet from, the cellphone guy, the mortgage place, the credit card guy, my insurance guy, my health insurance guy, and the dry cleaner,

"The check is in the mail...along with Dave Sim's birthday card."

To which they all said, "Who the hell is Dave Sim?" Except for the dry cleaner, he said, "You got wrong number! This no cleaner, this Dim Sum Palace!" Man, that guy is a hoot...

Happy Birthday!
Matt Dow

Happy birthday, Mr. Sim!

I'm really enjoying the new remastered phone books- the crisp artwork really shines. Thank you for your online presence here- I always look forward to your Friday updates.

Dave, happiest of birthdays to you, my friend. A toast to you, nicely browned and buttered with no sign of crustiness. Much love, sir.

Happiest of birthdays, Dave!

Michael Grabowski said...

Thank you for the art, humor, storytelling depth, thorough thoughtfulness and pure labor you put into Cerebus, glamourpuss, and SDOAR. (and for Judenhass, which doesn't fit the humor or storytelling depth of the above.) I hope the day was productive spiritually, creatively, and digestively for you, Dave, and that it was fulfilling in all the ways that you appreciate.

Happy Birthday to a true living legend! Hope you had a great day!

Ray Cornwall said...

Happy birthday, Dave, and to many more.

Paul Slade said...

Happy birthday, Dave (belatedly).

Dave Sim said...

I'd type a bunch more individual THANK YOUs and everyone's names but Impossible Thing #13 and the open letter to Robin Snyder took all of my allotted time.

But, seriously, THANK YOU all!

Prayer time in 22 minutes!

And I'm giving myself a belated birthday present of watching Walk Off the Earth's version of Taylor Swift's "Trouble" before I split. Check it out. Amazing a capella!

It's a rare day indeed when Dave Sim recommends a pop tune...

Happy Belated Birthday, Dave! I'm sorry that I missed posting this in time, though things have been kind of sad around here lately. Like some old cowboy song, only worse, just life. We hope that your year ahead brings you great happiness, peace, and good health. With affection, respect, and from me anyway ;), love xx Karen and Michael
