TPL’s Birthday (The Professor Appears)

So, happy birthday, everyone.

You see, it’s TPL’s 3rd birthday.


I thought it was older, but it isn’t.

It’s only 3.

Feels like I’ve known all you awesome folks for well over 50 years.

We’re all very old.

Let’s just accept it.

It’s great to be old.

Anyways and some.

Everyone always thinks this professor has a long gray or white beard.

I don’t.

You should know this.

After all, we’ve known each other long enough.

Also, t-shirts can be dressy.

I’ll prove it.

Many loves, kisses, and hugs to you all!

*goes out to eat cake*

You’ll each get a piece.

Oh, The Last Samurai soundtrack might make me cry. Forget I said that.

So, yeah, there was supposed to be a video here…but I haven’t time. I must go play oboe in a pit of snakes.

See you soon, loves.

    Happy Birthday, PTL!!!!!! I’ve loved being part of this land. Wishing I could see you play the Oboe. Hope it went well, Duketh. By the way, I’ve been listening to your tunes at work. I must needs a CD, Sir. Much love and hugs. Always.

    Golly…three years already? How time does fly when we’re having fun! And we are, you know — TPL is a true delight, and ’tis grand we’re all interconnected through this interwebs thingy. Happy Blogoversary, dear Professor, and don’t forget to send me some of that cake. Chocolate is preferred, but as long as you’re serving it up, doesn’t much matter the flavor (scratch that — no coconut, okay??!) Oboes are beastly — why are you switching from clarinet?

      Why thank you lots and lots and lots, Debbie! You guys make TPL great, in truth. Well…there was some coconut on it…is that bad? I hope you like it. Coconut is good for the ears, I hear.

      Oh I’m not. The part called for oboe. I’ve played it in the past. I hate it.

    Wishing you the happiest of blogoversaries, Professor! The Punchy Lands is now officially out of the “terrible twos” as they say about toddlers. Not sure what they saw about threes. I’m in the same boat, so perhaps I should research what they say. Will have a slice of cake though. I actually have a cake to slice. Will eat that.

    I can’t believe it’s been 3 years!! Happy Birthday to the Punchy Lands, and many loves, kisses, and hugs to you, professor! Good luck with the pit of snakes. Are they just one type of snake or a variety mix?

    A break from the daily issues the Punchy Lands is a breath of fresh air and uplift. Its like that morning cup of coffee with giggles. No other place like it. Thanks for the dedication and fun. Happy 3 years and looking forward to many more!!

    Happy Birthday Professor and all at TPL! Why, it feels as if you have been here forever. Life would feel very dull now without the fabulous characters and adventures of The Punchy Lands. Good luck with the oboe, although of course you will not need it. Also – the title here is misleading – you haven’t appeared at all! Many loves, kisses and hugs back – I shall await delivery of my slice of cake with interest.

    You do still have the ‘tache though, don’t you?

  15. 120 bardictale April 8, 2016 at 05:22

    Happy birthday! And many more, beardless-professor!

    Happy third birthday! Three is a magical number. Mr H said to send you three fist bumps from his own forehead.

    “Everyone always thinks this professor has a long gray or white beard.” count me on! :D … Happy Birthday TPL!

    Happy Birthday! Enjoy the cake.

    Happy Birthday, TPL. Yes, it does seem like 50 years.

  20. 192 Haylee April 7, 2016 at 21:31

    Three is a magical number so happy magical blogbirth! I’ve missed out on so many TPL adventures but very pleased to have jumped on board these past few months. :) Can’t imagine the blogosphere without you. Oh, and you already know that I think T-shirts (with ties, maybe waistcoats) can be dressy! Enjoy your cakey celebration 🍰🍰🍰

  21. 206 FictionFan April 7, 2016 at 20:37

    Oy!! You!!! Get back here and get that video up! What do you think this is, a holiday camp?? I bet you’re just too busy combing your beard!!

    And, sir, may I just point out that it’s physically impossible for you to have known me for 50 years, since as you well know, I am only 21!!! Don’t imply that just because you’re ancient we all are, do you hear???

    PS Happy Birthday, dear Prof! You have filled the last three years with much fun and laughter… thank you! Make sure my slice of cake is HUGE!!

  22. 289 Heartafire April 7, 2016 at 20:04

    Happy Birthday indeed, dear Professor and TPL! Many happy returns:)
