Happy Birthday! Ray.

When half your life is almost done

It's time to say, "I've just begun!

For me no falling, sinking torch,

But sparks that brighten, flames that scorch!

A rebel, I, 'gainst sacrifice,

Irrational thought, self-doubting vice!

A rebel, too, against the State

That punishes without abate

The man productive, man of pride,

Who slavery will not abide,

But rouse up rebels strong as he

And once more make his country free!"

When half your life is almost done

It's time to say, "I've just begun!"

My wife, Sharon, surprised me with a very nice gift tonight, we went out to dinner at Hank's Fine Steaks and Martinis. Hank's has been open for about 5 years, but because of market demand it is very difficult to get into without a reservation. For exmaple; we have attempted three times to get a table and were told that it was between a two to three hour wait. So, Sharon decided to make reservations two weeks ago and I had no idea where we were headed, but I was happily surprised. The food and atmosphere were both wonderful and what I think a fine restaurant should be like. Sharon and I first started celebrating birthdays together in 1985 and (besides the times when our time in the military did not allow it) we have spent almost everyone of them together. And after all that time, she still surprises me with wonderful gifts that I always value.
