I don't usually go out of my way to mention my own birthday but others did it for me today....Turning the double-nickle attracts attention.
-The City Manager gave me retirement papers.
-Dave Mance announced it at the Armed Forces Luncheon
-Roxanne Burns trumpeted it on the Hotline as she filled in for me.
-Newzjunky ran a photo of me buying myself a birthday present.
-Joe Brosk says its a "champagne" birthday when your age equals the year
-Johnny Spezzano let it out on the FM where the big ratings are said to be.
So I was unable to pass the milestone in anonymity, but I do appreciate the well wishes as will Yogi Berra who celebrates his 85th birthday today....
After all, "it's not over till it's over."
