Happy Birthday Epigramman - The one and only!

Updated on July 17, 2013

I know you wanted Cat jumping out of your cake... this is the best I could do on short notice and long distance

"In Honor of Epi"

Our Epi, which art on HubPages,

Hallowed be thy name!

His followers come

And have some fun

On his pages day after day.

He gives us, this day, our daily thread

And forgives us our nonsenses.

As we live for those poems that inspire us.

He leads us not to stagnation with such imagination

He delivers us with goodwill.

For thine is the Epigramman

Who we will cherish and admire

Forever and ever,

Amen!

We love you Epi!


He calls himself Epigramman

But some call him Epi,

I call him dearest Colin

And boy is he peppy!

This man has a love that is one of a kind

And his sense of humor cannot be defined.

He’s a little bit of everything

All rolled up into one

He’s sweet and caring, loving and sharing

Inspiring, admiring and fun!

Epi does for others…

What Whoville did for the Grinch

He makes a heart grow three times in size

And he does it without a flinch!

There never has been

Nor, ever will be

Such a wondrous man

As the beloved Epi!

Colin dear, because I am aware of your wonderfully eclectic musical taste, I knew how much you would enjoy the same version of Happy Birthday by the New Kids on the Block, that I did when I was 8. :-) I wouldn't do it for just anyone. You’re welcome, dear!

May 19th

Should this day be made a National Holiday?

      ooohh la la ...................my ultimate Cat woman ..............purrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr and woof woof too. doggie style. lol

      What a way to start off my birthday (I am 19 again in the arms of this pretty girl) at lake erie time 1:50am at Colin aka epi-man's rock and roll cottage party where your American neighbors are already complaining of the noise level from that crazy Canuck with some mighty loud Dave Edmunds and Rockpile (one of the best rock 'n roll bands of all time)

      On a serious and humble note thank you my dear Cat for making me feel special and loved and there is no greater gift than that, believe me, during a time in my life where I've had many doubts and some health issues as well not to mention financial woes but welcome to the human race because we are all in this together and everyone I know at the Hub has life affirming stories both bad and then good ......... I am only as good as the company I keep and the company at the Hub always elevates me to greater heights both creatively and spiritually,

      Thank you all for leaving comments here and supporting my writing and being my friend and esteemed collegue.

      Cat, as Elmer Fudd once said, I WUV YOU, and to be placed alongside, lol, my other two cats is a pretty tall order I would say but you deserve a place as well with Tiffy and Gabriel ....... in my bed.

      lol lol

      did I just say that?

      lake erie timeless for you, my beloved friend

      (and for everyone else on an inferior writing site other than the mighty HUB, lol, it's 1:59am)

      p.s. - thank you for all of your efforts here Cat - they are most appreciated and will remain in my heart locked forever - with a special key put away in your safety deposit box (no the other one , lol) wink wink nudge nudge say no more

      Listening to Hank Williams III - and I can't believe how much he sounds like his grandfather , Hank Sr. It's uncanny - oh how I love Hank Williams Sr.

      So here are 10 of my musical heroes:

      (in no particular order)

      10. Louis Armstrong

      9. Hank Williams Sr.

      8. Kate Bush

      7. Thelonious Monk

      6. Billie Holiday

      5. Charlie Parker

      4. Bob Marley

      3. Ray Davies of the Kinks

      2. Johnny Cash

      1. Brian Wilson

      ..and just to clarify here for the PG crowd ......the other safety deposit box is Cat's strong box under her bed where she keeps all of her important documents, valuables and such .....

    • epigramman profile image

      epigramman 4 years ago

      11. Cat

      because she is

      1. my friend

      2. an esteemed and respected colleague

      3. a damn good person

      4. a world class mum

      5. she possesses the gift of a terrific sense of humor

      6. she's smart

      7 and savvy

      8. she's feminine

      9. and sweet

      10. but Mama raised no fool.

      Listening to one of my all time favorite songwriters and performers - the late great Warren Zevon - anyone remember Werewolves of London?

      Dear Colin, your words could make me cry, but my dear friend, this page is meant to celebrate you and there you are... giving to me!

      I have only been half as supportive to you as you have been to me and probably thousands of other hubbers. Colin, I think you were one of the very first people following me and me following back. You were certainly one of the first I had a repeat conversation with, and some may say you're silly, but you always check in on me, and that dedication and support my friend, is an honor.

      .... there will be more to follow, but until then HAPPY BIRTHDAY COLIN!!! You're the BEST!!!!

      BIG BIRTHDAY HUGS from your other Cat

      Off for a walk now in the dark of the morning and to look at the stars and the moon and get some fresh air - I will see you later on in the day and thank you for this beautiful and heartfelt tribute.

      And I am not silly, I am just silly for you. lol

      It is a mutual honor Colin... you have been true, from the very beginning and the only thing I hear other hubbers say about you is how good you've been to them, you are certainly a fan favorite! Thank you, Colin... enjoy the walk, what a beautiful one it should be, and don't forget it is still night time for many and you will be blessed with many more Happy Birthdays after the sun rises!

      Goodnight hugs, my dear!

      Yes here me is , my lovely Cat, here me is - I keep posting this on my FB page and I shall do it again, hold on, okay it's done and here me is back in your sweet loving tender arms my dear Cat.

      How did you sleep? How is your family today? How were the musical links I sent you?

      Questions questions from this birthday boy who always feels like wearing his birthday suit when my delectable Cat is around, lol

      I even parade back and forward on my deck in the buff and that ain't no bluff - and the man walking by on the lakeshore road this morning with his dog tripped over it and said - Hey Buddy ya better tuck that thing back in ...... lol

      Nice sunny day here - actually perfect because it's warm but not too hot and it's very quiet around here too which I like.

      Will write back to you dear Cat in the afternoon - what are your plans today? I will be going to church today ....

      The Church of Cat.

      love and hugs from C and T and G

      Colin, happy birthday! I meant to go online earlier to wish you one, but I just got around to going on my computer. I wish I could slip on over there and have some cake and coffee with you, or join the party! But even though I can't, I am thinking of you.

      Dearest Colin… Birthday Boy!!! :D

      You are here! You are here! I’m in and out and home and away all day… I wish I could lock my doors and just play on HP today… woe is me. So you’re who I have to thank for all those FB likes huh? Ha, ha… well I should hope all your friends wish you a Happy Birthday!

      My slumber was short lived… but I’m not running out of fuel just yet :D and the family is well, thank you!!! Though it is your special day and I should be inquiring about you :D

      You have yet to send a musical link I haven’t truly enjoyed… each time I want to refer back to one… I have another one leave me in awe and then I lose my thought. I am easily distracted you know :D I will return to my favorites history to read down the line and let you know which ones particularly got me.

      I hope you make note that I gifted the sun to you for your birthday, for I am not enjoying the same sunshine in my sky that you are in yours :D

      I try not making plans because I tend to break them!!! If I could have it my way, my plans would be to spend much of the day right here on HP until my children are returned in the evening for dinner… but I should not be so lucky.

      Oh, I hope you have a marvelous time at church this afternoon and you should sport a Birthday Boy pin on your lapel! :D

      Big huge Birthday Hugs to Colin and Tiffy and Gabriel!!!! I hope your birthday is going well, my friend!

      James,

      That's mighty kind of you to say... and I agree, he could sell thousands of books from the poems he's written. He probably needs to be put in touch with the "right people".

    • epigramman profile image

      epigramman 4 years ago

      Well I've never really appreciated The New kids on the block until now, lol.

      Hello and good morning my dear Cat from lake erie time 1:51am and I am just checking in with you. I had a nice quiet day of rest and relaxation (especially after my health/heart scare last week) and celebrated my birthday with a good feeling. Of course as you know it was a brilliant sunny day and I only went uptown for a very short trip (which is 10 minute round trip commute) to get my drinking water and it was much warmer up there away from the lake.

      The bonus of living by the lake in the summer is the heavenly southwest breeze off the water and of course the same air current in the winter can be unforgiving like a nasty wind chill.

      Currently at 1:54am it reminds me of that Van Gogh painting Starry Night (there's a lovely song about that Cat, called Vincent, by Don McLean, the man who did the awesome American Pie) with a brilliant half moon shining in the sky over the lake..

      I did the same thing that I did last night as you can see - I lay down for a nap in the late evening and just woke up again. I think a couple of glasses of wine are in order (as I stuck to tea, coffee, juice and water today) and then Colin will rock the house for a bit = DJ Colin, lol)

      So that's it in a wrap Cat, I had a nice day and I hope I can hang on here at the lake for another birthday in terms of my financial strain.

      Oh well as Scarlett (Cat) O'Hara once said: Tomorrow is another day .....and until tomorrow I shall leave you with sweet kisses and hugs from the three of us - C and T and G and thank you Cat for your special blend of TLC and your most awesome mojo.

      Love from Mister C

      My dear Colin, the date on the calendar might have changed, but there is still reason to celebrate your birthday... today and everyday!

      How'd you like that song I picked for ya? :D ... I couldn't help myself... you have such exquisite tastes, I had to go for the big cheese :D

      I'm so glad you had a good day yesterday, you deserve them everyday, but yesterday was a holiday :-) ... I should bet there is quite a difference in temperatures between uptown and the lake, which must be quite a treat in the hotter summer months; your lovely escape! Though, as you put it, unforgiving in the winter... you will just have to bundle up and hold on :-)

      Wow, what a sky you must have over head, resembling that of Van Gogh's "Starry Night"! And I am very familiar with Don McLean's "American Pie"... longest song in history, perhaps? I was unaware of his "Vincent" but I should certainly be checking it out!

      Well, I don't feel so bad you had a much needed nap yesterday evening, as I couldn't get the time at my computer I had wanted... I am at least a poem behind of the Great Epigramman... which I should soon remedy :D

      You have that wine! Drink to your health! DJ Colin... that is you everyday :D

      Know that I think and pray for you and keep my fingers crossed, if I had a million dollars I would send it your way and buy away your troubles!

      Yes, Tomorrow is another day... so let us not fret tomorrow and just enjoy today! :-)

      Big morning hugs for my dear Colin and his well-companied cats!

      Your Cat

      Thank you my sweet Colin, maybe it has something to do with the 2 hours of sleep I got last night… but I could cry :-) Thank you so much for blessing me with your friendship… it means everything to me and I am truly lucky to have you! I love and respect you Col!!!

      Big hugs and kisses to you and Tiffy and Gabriel… the terrific trio! :-)

      Your other, adoring Cat

      Just checking in with you my dear Cat on this most special day for you - your birthday! I had quite a nice nap just now with my two cats on either side and I am pacing myself today for my first shift back to work tonight after 2 weeks on sick leave. I will let you know how I do tonight and it's a two hour commute to work round trip but it will be nice to get back into the swing of things once again until I can finally win my dream lottery and then sweep you off your feet and make 'everyday' your birthday and set your family up for life. I would buy you your own house with a writer's studio and library and you could become a lady of leisure and watch your children grow up in comfort and security and with the love of the greatest mum in the world.

      That is my birthday wish for you my dear friend - health, happiness and prosperity and the continuing outlet for your many creative and writing talents. Amen, and so says the Rev. Colin, lol.

      lake erie time 5:29pm big time love and hugs to you my sweet adorable birthday girl!!!!!

      Aw, thank you dear sweet Colin! You shouldn't have to go to work on my birthday! I'm glad you've gotten a nap in and I'm sure it will be nice to get back into your old schedule, but I don't want you to get overwhelmed either... I definitely want to know how it works out for you. Oh, Colin... you're so sweet, but I should be the one playing the lottery for you! You deserve a relaxing, stress free life... you've more than earned it... if love could pay the bills, you'd never have to work another day in your life! What a birthday wish Colin... just having you here, thinking of me and giving me your love is more than I could ever ask for. I am absolutely blessed to have you as my dearest friend, thank you!

      I will think of you when you are off at work, and take it niceeeeeee and easy, okay?

      Big hugs and kisses to the sweetest, most selfless man on the planet!

      Your Cat

      Good afternoon my dear beloved Cat and I hope this little message finds you and your family well today on this Saturday.

      When I arrived home this morning I saw the full moon over the lake and it was breathtaking and then I realized why - it was your beautiful face that I was looking at and then to complete the cycle of all things magnificent you woke me up this afternoon with your smiling face otherwise known as the sunshine over my lake. Apparently it's in the contract that the 'sun' has to ask your permission to rise up into the sky everyday.

      My night shift went well but I was a little out of shape from the two week layoff and enjoying my hub honeymoon with you , lol, in fact I couldn't wipe the smile off my face while thinking about how you and I were frolicking around on my nude beach (because we made it so,lol)

      Both cats are out back guarding our property and yes it was my furried alarm clock and resident domestic terrorist who woke me up today earleir than expected. I was dreaming about you , naturally, and Gabriel was wondering why the bed sheets looked like the Big Top at Barnum and Bailey's Circus, lol, well I did tell you did I not that I woke up with a smile on my face .....lol

      Sending my love and sweet kisses your way my dear friend and wishing for you and your family a spectacular Saturday from lake erie time 1:09pm courtesy of Colin and Tiffy and Gabriel

      Oh... sweetest, flattering Colin!!! I'm so happy to see you... I gifted you the sun, though I miss it, I'd much rather you enjoy it's warmth... and I might not have the sun, but I have you! :D

      You... a little out of shape? Well with all the walking you and your kitties do, dips in the lake and head-banging to that ever-loud fookin' music of yours... I find that hard to believe :D You'll get back into the swing of things, just don't force yourself... take it nice and easy, Otay? Don't those furballs know you need your beauty sleep? Not to achieve beauty of course, but to maintain the beauty that is already you :D

      You're soo funny, thanks for sharing a ray of sun with me Col!!!

      Big hugs and kisses to you and Tiffy and Gabriel... who I might need to have a talkin' to if they don't let you get some well-needed rest :D

      Wonder poem - you certainly are a talented writer. But, with the subject you have here that's not hard to do with Epi's for inspiration. Isn''t he great? Wonderful tribute to him.

      suzettenaples,

      Aww, thank you so much! You are right... this was not a hard hub to find inspiration for... it wrote itself! :-) I am grateful to know Epi, he is a very caring and supportive, unselfish man. Thank you so much!

      I already had you on my list to visit, but now I shall have to bump it up as you have been too gracious!

      Thank you so much!
