Happy Birthday Michael! You would be on the downside of the hill rolling towards 60 after this year. (And if you were here
I'd be playing that one for a LONG time!) Unfortunately you are forever 43 instead. I know this will post a day late but at least I didn't forget... Love you and miss you a bushel and a peck!
