Year in Review...

Another Birthday.
I can't say I'm unhappy to see "50" go. It has been quite a year.
Roper blew out his knee and has had to deal with pain, 2 surgeries and infection. Big men make bad patients but, all in all, he has been a trooper.
I was diagnosed with cancer. I had surgery. It was not fun. But, it wasn't nearly as bad as it could have been. And my cancer is among the most curable and the prognosis is good.
AND we got Katie. Despite a tendency to pull my hair and bite me, she is beautiful, bright and generally well behaved.
I have wonderful friends, a warm, sturdy house, and a big fuzzy cat.
Life is pretty good.
Bring on "51" !

May the next year hold more miracles, and many more positives than negatives.

The year was mixed for us too, but at least we saw you more than we have in any one period for awhile, which was good even if you weren't at your best the whole time. Emblematic of 2007 was sitting in your backyard on the September grass, watching Katie watch the dogs running around in circles. By then we knew you were out of danger, but still, it was good to be there.

Sisters don't come any better than you. Happy 51. I've been there recently, and there's much to recommend it.

Thus it has been for me; I wish it on your with much love.

Happy Birthday.
