Today is my birthday--I turn the big "46". I'm okay being in my 40s, but I think 50 is going to be a bear.
A good birthday story: In our courtship, Cathy threw me a surprise birthday party. She got me out of the house by saying we were going out for ribs (my favorite), and then she "forgot" her billfold at my house, so we had to go back. I walked in the door, and a dozen+ people shouted birthday greetings. My response... I turned to Cathy asked "does this mean I don' t get ribs."
