Birthdays Really Show Who Your Friends Are

Enjoying My Free Birthday Sundae From Redbone Alley - YUM !

Hey everybody! Just wanted to drop a short note tonight to thank everyone who wished me a happy birthday yesterday. I turned 41 Thursday, which means I can no longer join the Young Republicans... It's time I grew up anyway.

I'll be real honest here. My birhtdays have not been the most enjoyable day of the year for a very long time. I never did anything, got anything or went anywhere for a long, long time. But the last two have been pretty good, thanks to all of you guys. The 40th at Chris and Paige's last year was great, and yesterday, I must have gotten 75 Facebook messages from all of you. There are few things that make you feel like a good person than getting piled on with well wishes from friends.

Of course, not everyone remembered. Some I really wished that they would have remebered, and some I'm glad forgot... But, it has helped me see which people truly care, and I appreciate the kindness. We'll be back tomorrow with more of the material that keeps you interested...

I hope it's not toooo late to say "Happy Birthday". I'll put the date on my calendar so I won't miss it next year. Anyway, I hope you had a great day and will enjoy many more. Just a beer or two and some good BarBQue would make a good celebratory meal.

Thanks. Sorry to let you all own, but Betty's probably the closest here - I'm painting shutters today! But, the weekend ain't over yet!
