As I sit here in front of my home built PC wearing my Batman hoodie trying my best to think of ways to thank each of you for wishing me a Happy Birthday, when we are young in our youth and prime, we relish presents of gold, yet as we age like fine wine and bourbon, we gain wisdom along the way from the trials of life.
27 best wishes on WordPress and 40 wishes on Facebook not bad for being an Introvert, it not the gifts that one may receive, although nice at times I will admit, it is the act of kindness and well-wished thoughts to an individual.
One of my friends put together four photos from the past to celebrate my day. These photos were taken at a Sushi restaurant and John got me hooked on Eel. The memories, good times eating, drinking Sake, laughing while we released our frustrations from a dead end corporate job nightmare.
And a special wish from one of my closest friends that served in the Persian Gulf War, I think most of us remember that one. The sand causing problems and most death caused by friendly fire as I learned one night over a beer.

Thank-you for spreading positivity and kindness across the internet. I do try my best at this. Virtual Hug back countingsheepstudio from SD.
One of fellow Blogging friends even wished me a Happy birthday via Twitter which was new and a first. This is Tosha Michelle a very sweet person though I never met her in person, but I feel that we might get along in the real world just fine. Why do I say that? I’ll tell you, she will sometimes tweet asking how my week was or going, Tosha can be found at http://laliterati.com/
That takes me back to an earlier post I did about building those relationships, making connections and sharing.
Again thank you for the wishes.
