Yes, someone did read that far - read and enjoyed all 47. Need to work on teaching my old dog to sleep in his own bed!

Wishing you a very happy birthday and many more to come. Hope nothing interferes with those disc golf games!

Happy birthday, David. Does it feel like the last 5 years have been a lifetime (David 2.0 is a good metaphor)? Blessings to you and your family! And many more birthday celebrations

Happy birthday. I pray for your continued strength and courage. You have touched so many lives in such a short time. We all need to look at our inner "2.0".

God Bless you and yours
