The continuation of this thread addresses two things:
A: It removes spam and clutter from the forums by utilising just one thread for all birthdays.
B: It reminds me that a year passed very quickly and I just visualised that hip replacement. (Yes, a walking frame is getting closer to reality)
A: It's Heaths turn next...
Thanks for the well wishes Heath!
I have actually forgotten that it's my birthday this year for the most part. I'm holding off till my holiday starts in a few days. I'm sure some terrorist will blow up a corner store near our apartment for some sparkles to celebrate my 44th. Just better not be the "Doughnut Pub" across the road from us. I'll be a regular there for 3 weeks!
