Those of you who picked up a copy of my book will recall a story that I wrote about my daughter's reaction to my new age. She ever so kindly told me that since 40 was close to 100 I would be dead soon so there was no reason to give me a surprise party. Gee, thanks honey ! But she was kind enough to make me breakfast in bed so I guess I'll have to forgive her for that comment.
What the next forty years of my life will bring is still unknown, but one thing is for sure...I will cherish every moment of it. Now if you will excuse me, I have a family that wants to sing Happy Birthday to me and I don't want to miss a minute of the off key melody that is about to encompass my heart.
