Happy Birthday Dorinda

Today is Dorinda’s birthday, so I’ve been wondering just what to post on the blog for such a momentous occasion. You know she’s turning 28 again, (for the 5th year in a row, it’s amazing I tell you!)

I thought maybe I’d write a poem. But I’m the guy who admits that while roses may be red, violets are actually PURPLE.

And nothing rhymes with purple…

I guess I could sing her a song, but anybody who has ever heard me sing would advise against ruining her special day in such a tortuous manner.

Then I realized that while poems and songs aren’t really my strength, I am not without skills. And there’s a certain collection of skills I have that many other people pay me handsomely for. Yet Dorinda rarely receives direct benefits from these. I used these skills once to win her heart so many years ago. But now, so often I use these skills for the world, but only meagerly for my wife.

That ends today.

Happy Birthday my dear, I love more than you can imagine. This is my gift to you, I hope you enjoy it.

Ok I'll try this again. I posted and it showed up that you posted to yourself. I was signed in under your name. Sorry. Anyway, I hope your b-day was great. I thought it was. We have been having such good time. Ashlyn says she doesn't want to go home. Guess we'll have to fly the trips here. You have room in your basement right?
