Fight Against Maturity

Say it with flowers? Nah. Say it with manure.

An Iowa farmer has given his wife her “crappiest” ever birthday present.

Dick Kleis used a manure spreader to spell out “HAP B DAY LUV U” in a field visible from the living room of the couple’s home. Wife Carole was surprisingly happy with the gift of more than 50 tonnes of dung, reports the local Telegraph Herald. “He’s done weird things before for birthdays,” she said. “But maybe not this weird.”

Mr Kleis did also take his wife out for dinner and a movie to celebrate her 67th birthday, but wanted to do something unique.

After 106 years what’s one day more or less?

One of Britain’s oldest women has been celebrating her birthday on the wrong day – for more than a century.

Lena Thouless, 106, a great-grandmother, from Bowthorpe, Norwich, has spent all her life celebrating her birthday on 23 November. But detective work by her daughter, Lena Brooks, discovered she should have been blowing out the candles the day before, reports the Daily Telegraph.

Mrs Brooks, 55, also of Bowthorpe, was stunned to discover purely by chance [when she found her mom’s birth certificate] that the extraordinary centenarian was actually born on 22 November.
