Nifty, Nifty, Ron turns...



That's right. This morning I turned the big 5-0. A half century of living on God's good earth.
Now I have many things on the horizon to enjoy that I never really thought about before. Mailings from AARP filling my mailbox. Invasive colon tests. 30% Off Day at Walkers-R-Us.
No, seriously... I don't feel like I'm fifty at all. Why would I? I've got a wonderful and supportive wife that I've been married to for nineteen years, three beautiful children who keep me on my toes and keep me young, and a second writing career that promises to be bigger and better than the first one.
So I'm planning on grinning like a rabid possum and enjoying today. I'll eat my tombstone birthday cake and read my "Over the Hill" cards and take it like a man. See ya!

Happy, happy, happy, happy, happy, happy birthday to one of my favorite people in the genre.

God bless, buddy. Hope this is your best birthday EVER.

Ron! Happy Birthday!!!!
I hope you had a great day. Did you really have a tombstone cake? :-)
You sure didn't look 49 when I saw you this summer so you can't possibly be 50!
