The Happiest of Birthdays

IMG_6841 copyI wanted to thank everyone, especially my wonderful wonderful WONDERFUL wife, for the fantabulous 37th birthday party y’all threw me last month.

Seriously, it was the best birthday party I’ve ever had since that one year decades ago I got this:



But really, thank you so much. Although unnecessary, the gifts were great, but the best gift was having so many of you there to share the night, especially those of you that brought beer. Except for Slats. Not sure who invited him, but let’s be more diligent for the 38th birthday party next year, okay?

Since joining the club, we have made so many friends that sometimes, we ask ourselves, where have you been all our lives? We joined for the tennis, but we stay for the terrific people we have met. I would tell you I am crying as I am writing this, but you wouldn’t believe me. And it wouldn’t be true. But I do feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

Thank you.
