Happy Birthday RAB !
« on: May 31, 2007, 01:04:29 PM »
Hello forum family !

One of our most beloved members and my dear friend RAB will turn 50 this weekend!

R,

I hope you have a wonderful 50th birthday!  I know you have dreaded this one, but as the song says, it's just another "day in the life".   And you have so much life to live, and so much heart and hope to share with others.  Thank you for your friendship, and all the love and concern you have shown for me and so many of us in the forums.  You are a true gentleman, and a beautiful person, both inside and out.

much love,
Alan

50 is a good year.  In fact, it's so good, it takes 365 days to celebrate it.  Enjoy each and everyone of them, Rab.  It's a special anniversary for a specical guy.

Good Morning Everyone!   :D

Well it's official!  I'm now 1/2 century old!   ::)

Thanks to all of you for your birthday wishes, I loved reading them all and plan on printing them out to put with my cards! 

I had a pretty good day, cleaned the bathroom, pulled some weeds,  >:(.  We had a great dinner (steaks on the grill/twice baked potatoes, fresh green beans [my fav.]) and a couple of drinks.

Damn Fool gave me a new camera which I can actually figure out how to use (the other one was just WAY too complicated), so I spent the afternoon playing with it.

I also got a very special "Tin Man" from a very special friend here in the forums.  (Thanks again Mr. Tin Man)

Well that's it, today is a new day and I'm going to keep making each the best they can be.

Thanks again!

RAB
