Thanks baby, that was the best gift of my birthday. Thanks for not mentioning the socks left on the floor, or any of the 36 bad things you could have just easily come up with.

I had a great Birthday. I love you. I'm sorry I don't comment more often on your blog. I just feel a bit out-of-place among all the women.

p.s. This is what my handwriting looks like. We met on-line remember?
