Happy Birthday WJ, you my friend are what I like to call a room changer. When you walk into a room the tone changes. Thanks for being the guy that you are and such a vital piece of the 2cool puzzle. You were the first 2cooler many of us ever met and left an impression on us that has kept us around for years. Hope Miss Pam treats ya to a great day and a great Fathers Day weekend. Have a good one friend.
Well, as birthdays go, this was a good one, even though I worked all day. I got to spend the day with Miss Pam.
I just want to say that the love and warm wishes of all you guys made it a very special day. I think it just serves to underscore what I've known for some time now. That home and happiness is not a place. It isn't "stuff" either. It is PEOPLE. Family and good friends are the keys to happiness.
I sure hope the saying is true that you can judge a person by the company they keep. Because if that's really true then I must be one charmin' guy. The company I keep is the very best.
There was a novelty song back years ago in country music. The name and the singer are long forgotten. But it was one of those "lesson" songs that I'll always remember. It was about a guy that was always complaining about how he never had time to relax and do the things that he wanted to do because of his family's demands on his time. It was always run here and go there and do this or that for the kids and the wife. He felt like they were strings HOLDING HIM DOWN and keeping him from enjoying his life.
Then one day he had a slam-bang heart attack and nearly died. He awoke in the hospital with his wife holding his hand and his children gathered around his bed. With tears of joy and relief in his eyes he realized that those strings he'd complained about all those years hadn't been holding him down after all. They'd been HOLDING HIM UP.
I know full well that I ain't the sharpest knife in the drawer but I didn't have to have a heart attack to learn that lesson.
Last year was GREAT, thanks largely to you all. Thank you. I can't wait to see what the next year will be like!
I was out of town this weekend or I would have posted up sooner! Hope you had a really super BDay. Are you and that Grandson of yours gonna hit the boards for the Saturday tourney? Hope to see ya there.
