HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOHNNY IACOVINO!!!

Known to y'all as "J51" - he's been here since I started blogging (way back on the old site, remember that?). Never met the guy, but I know he's a stand-up guy. A selfless volunteer for the Missing Children's Network, a father and a husband. And even if he doesn't post - he's reading. I know this because when this happened, he sent me a card. And he never misses my birthday. And it always surprises me because I'm never expecting it. That means a lot.

Which is why Johnny, on your birthday I would like to return the favour. Johnny's wife Franca, sent me a great e-mail, requesting a song for him on the Nooner today. So - Johnny - for all the wonderful little thoughts you have sent my way and shared with us here in the blogging world:

HAVE A FANTASTIC BIRTHDAY TOMORROW! YOU'RE THE BEST!

Awwwwwww thats sweet how all the bloggies are coming together.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY J51 HAVE A SPLENDID DAY! AND A WONDERFUL WEEKEND. ANYONE WHO GIVES TIME TO SUCH WONDERFUL CAUSES AS THE MISSING CHILDREN'S NETWORK IS ONE GREAT DUDE!

NAT GLAD THE CYST TURNED OUT TO BE NADA. I HAVE 2 CYSTS TO GET TO GET CHECKED THIS COMING MONDAY. I HAD 3 OR SO REMOVED SEVERAL YEARS AGO AND THEY ARE DOING WELL HAVE NOT RETURNED. I KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN THOUGH, EVERY DAMN GROWTH SCARES THE CRAP OUT OF US.

Ditto from me, J51. And if you ever meet Maria and she wants to take your picture, make sure it's a close-up. :)

N@, I also had a cyst removed many moons ago, by Dr. Sullivan at the old St. Mary's (that's how long ago!). It turned out to be a little ball of finger-nail material (carotene?). Anyway, I've read enough Stephen King novels to wonder if it was really an evil twin, and has since grown into a full human, out terrorizing sewer rats or something.

Oh, life is good!

j51, I've just gotten to work to catch up on stuff I couldn't get done through the week because of our Radiothon here in Hamilton, and was home for most of the weekend with very sick babies, so I'm sorry that I'm late in relaying my birthday wishes to you. You're a perfect example of a responsible member of the family of man...and congratulations on soon - maybe even by the time you read this - becoming a grandfather.
All the very best.
