    Hey Terry, Happy Birthday!!

    I just wanted to say that I noticed that you were born in Mt. Caramel hospital in Detroit,on October 9, 1948. Never met anyone that was born in that hospital before, though I know its not there anymore.

    When I was 4 months old we moved to Canada and 4 years later my Mother started studying with the JW's and then got my Dad in on it and my childhood went downhill rapidly after that.

    Wonderful capsule of your life through words Terry.

    I love that you capture the overview but have kept the sensitivity a good writer has to have.

    Happy Birthday to you - and may you have many more.

    Because that's what you do.
    Happy Birthday.

    Happy birthay, Terry. Are you the guy that told us the Starbucks that you hang out in? I'm now thinking your birthday would be a good time to say hello, and share cupcakes.

    Love reading your posts. I lasted from 1973 to 2002 at which time the wife and I went AWOL.

    We have 3 daughters, one of which is still in and active, they live in your neck of the woods,,Dallas

    We have all managed to leave by the backdoor so to speak so the Dallas daughter and her hubby are willing to overlook our failure to partiscipate .

    Be Happy
