Today’s topic is one everyone should enjoy — or not. It’s about birthdays and is dedicated to my wife since this Sunday, Jan. 31 will be her ?? birthday. No, I’m not revealing the number, because, after all, we’ve been married for over 40 years, so why spoil it now.

Personally, I’ve always believed our birthdays are days we should never ignore or, worse, forget. Birthdays are special when you consider there will always only be one of you who made your presence known to the world on that certain celebrated day.
