THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU so much everyone, and thanks Teresa for posting my birthday thread.

I have had a wonderful week-long birthday celebration.  Two parties, 3 cakes, and been taken out to dinner so many times that if I weren't naturally bean-pole skinny, I'd be big as a house!   I've received lots of gifts, 20 cards, and lots of phone calls, including a special one from New Zealand!   How wonderful is it to have friends all over the globe?

You know, I have always been fascinated by dolphins.  They are magnificent creatures, beautiful and intelligent.   Sailors consider them a sign a good luck.   We do well to remember dolphins; when one ails, the others come and nudge him along to keep him moving gently through the waters, because a dolphin must continue to move in order to keep breathing.   You are all my dolphins...you keep me going when I need a 'nudge' now and then.   Thank you so much for being there, I love all of you.

My guy is here (still in bed) and I haven't opened his gifts yet; we are going out to dinner (again!) tonight....so the celebration continues.    I will print this thread out and save it, for when I need a 'pick-me-up'.   Your kind words and loving messages have helped to make my 50th a birthday to remember.

Love,

Alan

Edited to add:   I received a feather bed mattress topper and a new set of sheets and towels from the Biltmore House collection of linens....(yes he was being practical, but it was exactly what I asked for).   I also got the funniest looking little red bear, who is kind of bald with this stringy funny hair....he makes me laugh.

Oh and Fang got super jealous this weekend; she even HISSED at him !

Dearest Alan,
I am so glad you had a nice birthday. It is nice to see good things do indeed happen to good people. You are always so kind. I just thought I'd say hello, and tell you how much i appreciate your posts.
 I think we were probably infected the same time, and I just noticed that we are the same age! I'll be 50 in June.
Alan, this is quit the milestone!! I think you should be very proud. This is quit an accomplishment! So how does it feel to be 50? I'm sure it's fantastic!
Well take care and I'm glad you had a great day. You are a nice person, and I'm happy for you. Way to go!
With the utmost Respect,
Jeff
