I too am a night person, which is why I'm commenting at a quarter to one in the morning.
Wait, I guess that makes me a morning person, whatever.
Happy 50th!

Jem and the Rockers, sooo awesome, and a Thunder cats reference too (I wanted to be Cheetera too).
It is fun to hear all the little tid bits about you. (and scary to think how alike we are).

P.S. if you are into birdhouses, I think I have several I would be willing to give to a good home.
