emoticon I am "mingling" with my Leslie Walkers this week at my virtual celebration party. With so many folks on the team I don't get by as often as I like. Each team member is unique and special. I want to let you know I appreciate you being part of the team.

Count your life by smiles, not tears.
Count your age by friends, not years.
Happy Birthday, and may all the wishes and dreams you dream today turn to reality.
