Happy Birthday John -- We Made It!!

It is a special thing to be able to share a birthday. It is especially nice when that person is an old friend who was born on the same day of the same year. We were born on December 7, 1946 -- Pearl Harbor Anniversary babies.

I first met John (he's the one in the middle) shortly before Bill and I were married. He had been Bill's friend for several years by then and he served as one of the ushers in our wedding.

John has been a good friend through the years. He has a wonderful sense of humor and is always trying to pull one over on Bill. He also recently retired and is enjoying his projects and riding his motorcycles.

Over the years we have made every effort to somehow celebrate our birthdays together. Granted it has sometimes been on a totally different date but when we have been able to be together it has been a fun time for all of us -- John, Carolyn, Bill and I. This year we will not be able to celebrate together but we did spend some special time in November when Bill and I stayed with them at their new home in Boise. We look forward to them joining us sometime next year to celebrate here on the east coast.

Have a wonderful day John and we will toast your 60th tonight!
