Josephine,

I was hoping to slip through this time but I am grateful for your kindness.

I had a wonderful day and a week prior, my children and son-in-law had taken me to one of the fanciest restaurants in Houston. Just glad they were doing the paying.

I don't recall a time when I had so many phone calls, personal e-mails and messages and emotes from CM.

Once again, thank you so very much.

Blessings always,

Leon

Birthday greetings, Leon.

No -- you can't just slip through although you almost were successful in your effort. You had the CM site shut down for nearly a day. That just drew more attention to you.

I thought your opinion of a fancy restaurant was Hardee's, but leave it to your family to find you some fine vittles for that Texas-size appetite of yours. Got room for the cake yet?

Glad you have been getting the attention (that's a-tention, not de-tention) you deserve. As one of CM's resident gentlemen, you should be recognized for your extensive contributions to the fora.

We hope you will continue to make your presence known here, although we understand you might be slowing down a bit with age.

Many blessings on your special day and may you have many more to enjoy!!!

Feliz compleanos, amigo.

Ray,

Thank you kindly for your post.

My two children usually grant my wishes until it comes time to take me for my birthday dinner. They do it their way - period. For the newer posters, this Texan is pretty plain vanilla. I can only imagine what the total tab was for that evening. When you include the couple of bottles of wine (this is a must for my daughter), appetizers, main course, side dishes and dessert - well, it just boggles my mind to spend that kind of money in a three hour period. Must be the generation gap. Don't get me wrong, it is so appreciated but never, ever expected.

We don't have any Hardee's but have Golden Corrals. Heck, for $13.00 (including tax and drink) you can get a buffet that would make King Solomon turn green with envy. laughing

A couple of months ago, my son-in-law hired me as a consultant for his ever expanding business. I am doing the finishing touches for a health insurance program for his employees. Then, he wants me to write detailed job descriptions, set up a safety program, purchase safety supplies and keep him out of trouble with OSHA and the Texas Workers' Compensation Commission, setting up forms to do employee evaluations, etc. These are all tasks I performed for many years in my former job prior to retirement.

He told me to bill him for what I consider just compensation. It got me to thinking - if they can spend hundreds of dollars for one night's entertainment, then I am going to reconsider giving him the family rate for my services. laughing laughing Plus, I have had to curtail some of my volunteer services.

To me, the people you are with make the occasion memorable. The venue is secondary. Many will boast of where they went with little mention of who was there to celebrate the occasion. So, you all keep sending me your unused restaurant coupons. laughing

Yes, I got lots of attention. More so than I deserve. The de-tention starts back today.

Thank you for being one of the very bright lights since my membership in July, 2010.

May God richly bless you - always. Praying Praying Praying

Leon
