As a member in good standing and the president and founder of The Society of Gardeners Aged 50 and Over (SGAFO), I am once again called upon to bring before all esteemed members a petition for the proposed membership of a fellow garden blogger and friend.
I am confidently convinced that she is worthy of membership though I can hardly believe that she has reached this birthday milestone that qualifies her for membership. I'm sure that she, like all current members in good standing, of which there are many, is equally baffled and excited to be at this point in her life when she is qualified for membership in SGAFO.
As a current member in good standing, I would like to use this opportunity to extend the warmest of birthday greetings to her and offer her some of the Secrets of Gardening for Those Over Fifty. Knowing these secrets will bring her even more joy and prosperity in her garden than she ever had in previous decades of her life. These secrets will enhance her days of gardening and give her confidence to continue to garden for decades more.
Of course, dear members and prospective members, as the keeper of these secrets, I know that it is important to keep these secrets secret. Therefore, I will share them with her via email. I know she will treasure them always as a wonderful birthday present.
All members are hereby asked to signify the acceptance of - oh my, I forgot to mention who has qualified for membership today. Dear me. Oh, well, a sign of the times. Please join me in wishing Dee the happiest of birthdays with your comment below and a visit to her blog, Red Dirt Ramblings.
Your humble president for life of SGAFO, GBGC, and SPPOTGWLS
