Happy birthday.  Inquiring minds want to know how things are going.  Hope it's a great one this evening.

Joe;  My "forum birthday" was a few weeks ago and I went back and read my initial posts and the responses -- you were one of the members here that welcomed me and helped calm me down -- so thank you for that.

I do wish you a great birthday, and a great year.

Thanks for the birthday wishes all.  I've been busy packing and finally secured movers for July 1st.  Montreal is a challenge when moving as the entire city moves in the last week of June, which creates a real mess for everyone concerned.

I had a quiet birthday, bought a new pair of sandals and got a plug for my right ear.  I can't wait to move and get settled and enjoy the rest of the summer.

Life is what happens, when you are busy making other plans.

Though you may be only one person in the entire world, to one person, you may be the entire world.

I wish to become half the man, that my dog thinks I am.

Remember me with simple acts of kindness and I will live forever.
