The Recap

Overwhelmed....to say the least.  My fingers were busy, busy, busy all day yesterday answering text messages, listening to voice mails, hitting "like" on Facebook wall posts, and checking my own blog comments.  I'm exhausted.  You all pulled through like champs.  You definitely made me a happy boy and reminded me of how many people love me and have chosen to include me in their lives.  Thank You!  The Recap includes:
  •  Close to 150 Facebook wall posts.  
  • 35 text messages including one whose predictive text told me "Happy Birthday my DEAD friend" instead of "Dear" friend.  Yikes.  He was not happy.  I laughed.  
  • 10 voice messages -- including one from France!
  • 17 comments on my birthday blog post.  
The highlights of my day:
  • Flying right over the top of Mount Rainier and Mount Saint Helens on a clear winter morning.
  • Having several of my coworkers and friends buy my dinner and/or lunch treats for me.
  • Having numerous passengers tell me "Happy Birthday."
  • Reading through my cards when I arrived home by myself.  
  • Spotting a dark chocolate bar and yummy candle on the counter when I arrived home.
  • Watching a flock of geese fly over the top of me while I walked Mason.
  • The winter sunshine as I watched the long shadows of the day begin to form.  
  • Getting home and seeing my LoverBoy and Pooch!
  • Checking out a super nifty evening sunset to put my day to rest in fine fashion--thanks Mindy! 
  • Eating ice cream and Sun Chips.
Thanks to all of you for your friendship, love and commitment to me.  I love you all dearly.

The only thing missing was being able to take you out for an adult beverage (now that you are of legal age) and dinner and it looks like we will be able to pull that off tonight! Yay!

I am glad you are having a great birthday season....as we will be celebrating the rest of the week too!

Oh you do sound spoiled.;) I'm glad you had a great day. It's good to be alive and well.
I must say that Pacific Northwest air has kept you looking quite young!
