Happy Birthday Dan--October 5

The birthdays come quicker and quicker. A review of the last year is in order. What did I learn? Last year on this date Janet and Melinda surprised me with a trip to San Antonio. It was great! I need to return the favor. And the year has been full of surprises:

Prostate Cancer and surgery December 31, 2003
Mother-in-law had emergency heart surgery and is lucky to be alive,
Sister-in-law had hip replacement surgery.
Marriage announcement. Melinda and Mike get married on October 16.

I learned that life is full of surprises: many good and some bad. Another more important lesson is to be thankful for each day of life! And make the most of everyday. Smile. Give a hug, a handshake, and be attentive to those you meet. That is what life is all about.

Enclosed is my birthday photograph. How about sending me a note and wish me a Happy Birthday. I would appreciate it. Thanks.
