Psst!!! Don't say anything, but Fr. Blake's Birthday is coming up


....he didn't exactly shout it from the rooftops last year, but only noted it AFTER the event. He mentioned in passim that he didn't like to celebrate his birthday much, given it fell on the date of the death of "Catholic England." i.e. the day Queen Mary I died. Historically minded as I am the date is Nov. 17th.

So would some of my English bloggers friends make sure he doesn't sit home in the dark listening to dirges? [Remind him England at the time was still on the old Julian calendar, and it's "safe" to celebrate is birthday.]

He claims he'd like an icon or two for Christmas...but I bet he wouldn't say no to one on his birthday. And I'm sure he wouldn't say no to a spiritual bouquet!

A lady doesn't speak of such things about a nice gentleman like Fr. Blake.

By my calculations he is six years older than I, give or take a year or so. :-D
