Thanks go to everyone for all your good wishes on my 50th birthday.  Good friends and a wonderful family are all anyone needs in life.

My friends took me out to Ming's Chinese Restaurant for a birthday party on the 12th.  My mother came down to my place for a visit for the first time in a year, so that was a special treat.  Kirk, Mum and I celebrated my birthday on the 13th with yet more cake, and a few more presents!

The cake
No, they didn't try to put 50 candles on it!
Jim tells me if the bakery had written it correctly, the verse would have read "Joe, you know you've hit Fifty when your narrow waist and your broad mind begin to switch places."
