Happy Birthday to Ed !!!

Today is Ed's birthday!! Oh, yeah, and it's Flag Day. But let's stick to Ed, mkay? He started out way back in the 40's in Hayward, California. Here is the obligatory photo of child on car that everyone of us born in the 40's and early 50's have. He's with his grandmother.

Ed was a shy, quiet kid, but he sure knew how to party.

Then came those young adult years when he did two tours of duty in Vietnam. Luckily he came away unhurt. These were also his studly days.

Ed and I met ten years ago this coming October and have been married for almost 7 years.

How fortunate I am - after kissing many frogs and even marrying a couple of them - to have found him. We share the same values, the same love of family, the same love of traveling. My life has been so much fuller since that fateful day in 1999 when we first met for coffee after meeting on Match.Com. He's a great husband, a wonderful father and stepfather, and a terrific grandfather.

Here's to having another 20 years together to enjoy each other, our every-growing families, and the world.

I love you, Ed!!
