Happy Birthday

(I stole this ^ from one of the old birthday announcement threads  ;) ;D )

When I get older losing my hair
Many years from now
. . .
Will you still need me, will you still feed me
When I'm sixty-four?
- the Beatles

mine. was a month and two days ago
and a belated Happy Birthday! to you!!
leatherman (aka mIkIE)

There's no rain, there's no storm, though the blue sky makes you wonder
Don't you fear what will come will come
And right now we're in the sun
Sure enough, seasons change
But don't let today get lost 'cause today the sun's on us
Today the sun's on us
- Sophie Ellis-Bextor

Thanks Leatherman! Also nice little Beattle's song excerpt. I am resisting a "Clever Chops Moment" in a "youthful response" as my Son says :)

And Tonny2 Happy Belated Birthday to You!

Take care,

OT

happy Birthday and many many more

may they bring hope, happiness and joy

( hallmark greeting card response )

alternative views

and another way to view the occasion. would be another year closer to the date that a cure is found. If it takes a many years or just a few.  you are a year closer to the day this scourge ends. the goal we all hope for. Well can only truly speak for myself and say that  at least I hope to see that day in my lifetime and in your lifetime as well. then to say every year that passes is a year closer to that end. 

an even simpler thought of a more important way to look at it another year overcoming this bug we carry. cause for personal pride and a life  victory we all have in common on our birthdays another year denying this virus from achieving its goal off ending our lives and of stopping those of us who carry it . 

sorry to mention HIV even though  that is the reason for this website ,

again sorry to mention it  on your celebratory birthday post but  just wanted to write something hope full for your  special day and for all of us getting older while living with HIV and the burdens it entails. 



all my best to you
