Standing on the principle of radical honesty, I hereby claim a DO OVER day...

So he can't get any older than 57, ever, unless he is forthright and rightforth, uh, right now.

Happy Birthday, FH!!!

(I wish Acey were here to make the cake)

LOL! laugh laugh Thank you all for the birthday wishes!

It was a bittersweet day to say the least.

Buried my father the day before, and presenting the eulogy was emotionally difficult, yet a treasured privilege.

Took my mother to breakfast on the 24th, along with my two sons, and my younger brother (by 15 years younger, ugh). Said "aloha" to my mother, and began the long (12 hour) trip back to North Carolina.

FH, are you familiar with Warrenton, NC? My FWH family has property there. He will be traveling there next month to "check it out".

Welcome back!

Happy belated birthday FH and thank you for your sage wisdom and guidance. I am really grateful for you and others and am praying for a year filled with God's blessings.

I am sorry to hear about the passing of your father, but he will see you again one day!

I am trying to read what SS sent me, I am confused and not sure what to do, your wisdom would be appreciated, I am at my sister's house in Concord currently, and really don't want to go home, I love it here, and love the peace of not being there. The kids have been WONDERFUL! I am grateful for the peace and distance.

Again, blessings for a Happy 58th Birthday!

onlyUcan - no, I'm not very familiar with Warrenton. It's quite a bit East of where I live, in the Northeast of NC. Not much out there, really.

hehehe…bjs, it does get hot here in the Summer, but the Winters are not nearly so bad as the "frozen North." cool



BK, mama2boys, shinethrough - Thanks…30 more and I'll make it to my father's age. Sounds kind of like a short amount of time the closer I get to it. sick
