Thanks to the Saunders for the e-card
Every year on this day my internal biological odometer increments once more … it now reads 27 … twenty-seven … Unbelievable! And what a birthday present to cap off the year. I am happy to state that the Hair Club is working … though I am double dosing these days 🙂
I have now reached the upper end of the ‘mid-twenties’ and the ‘thirties’ are now on the radar. I have now been married 3 years, a job that keeps me motivated, a home that is starting to feel homey, and a family on the way. I just wish I could see my family more often … it has been too long.
As I close post #200, raise a glass to another year gone by … may the excitement continue … and though I may feel old I have my friends to make me feel older – thanks guys!
