Happy Birthday, Brent!

I share your age, and I was discussing being 69 with my youngest daughter the other day.

I told her that turning 35 was tough for me for about the first 5 hours of that day, when I chose to be grateful to be alive living a good life! I wondered, then, if turning 70 would bother me twice as much. I need to be twice as grateful to be alive, able to do as I please, with not much to complain about!

I have moved away, to Jeanie’s hometown, Fairmont, so I will increasingly rely on you for stories that bring me back to Big Stone County. Thank you!

Happy Birthday, Brent. "A solid seven out of ten" sounds damn near perfect for anyone over fifty. Who knows? That Vietnamese restaurant might just push your birthday celebration to a solid eight. Here's hoping they serve beer, skål.
