Happy Birthday Fred

Today is our buddy Fred's birthday. His family lives up in Tennessee so we invited him over this evening to blaze a few steaks.
I consider the birthdays of my friends and family holidays.  have a program on my computer that reminds me of special days. I always try to call my friends and family on their birthday and tell them how much they mean to me.
In years past, I took off for Jilda's and my birthday.  We always tried to do something special. We either went on a get-a-way or went to a favorite restaurant. Something to that said "hey, this is a special day, let's take time to acknowledge and celebrate."
It seems like the last few years, the day job got in the way but those days are behind me. So tonight, Jilda and I will celebrate with Fred. and here is my wish for him.  As the Irish say, "May you be an hour in heaven before the Devil knows you're dead."
