happy birthday leroy!

i keep thinking that its so strange that its already 2004.... 2004!!!!!!!!!! wow, where did the years go and wow, we are in this new century with things ever changing. its amazing to see all of this. i almost cant wait til i am really old so i can say all of that "i remember that!" "when i was YOUR age" and all of those things that our elders always said. well, maybe i CAN wait to be an elder. argh.... watched the sun set into the ocean tonight while drinking my martini, and thought, what a charmed life i have.... thankful for everything i have and ready for the challanges ahead....
postscript, added later today...
just got an email that our local NSAI co-coordinator, rex poindexter has passed away. very sad news...
