      I'm back!  if that helps?  I've been real busy for a while and my hubbing kind of... stopped.  It is weird seeing so many new names about.  Hopefully all the oldies are still here too.

          Man... you are good with these birthday things, Rob!  You are VERY close... just a little off.  The big day is Tuesday and it's the big 45!  I'm currently at the beach with my kids, my good friend and her kids.  We are having a blast...  How are you?

            Oh cool... Happy Birthday then Laura...  You have an excellent week and it was Wednesday that came to mind.. so hey... get a lottery ticket that is drawn this Wed.... or maybe.. if you are beach-combing near Oregon... you might find a gold bar washed up from the Tsunami last year!   smile 
            Take care... it was a Wednesday surprise!  smile

            And... cheers.. yep.. I'm still alive!  big_smile

              Dang it, then Rob...  I'm going to Las Vegas at the end of this month.  Guess it's too late to gamble then, huh?  Has to be this Wednesday?  STILL not sure how this gift of yours works, but I'm a believer!

              Good to see you... I miss you these days!
