My birthday is going to last longer than War & Peace. The caregiver is fixing me a birthday dinner Monday night. My favorite Albany Oregon relatives, Don & Belva, are going to take me to lunch on Wednesday. Then sister and brother-in-law are taking me to the casino next Saturday. We were going to go today but the weather is a little uncooperative. Yesterday I got a really nice card and a fifty dollar gift card from my seasonal jobs. It was such a surprise. Some really nice comments, most about me looking youn and being young at heart. Then letter in the day I got a nice phone call from Jon, a former client. He is the one that when I first met him he was basically broke and working out of the trunk of his car. He is now a millionaire many times over. He basically thanked me for helping to make him a millionaire. I thought my birthday ended at midnight Thursday but if I manage this right I may able to get a free meal every day until my next birthday.
