The title says it all, it was just another day. My wife and child are in Korea visiting Mom and the family so I spent the day with my Cat's Princess and Shooter. I had a TV dinner and watched TV played some One Pocket with a couple of local friends in my pool room, man I am happy to still be around, the older you get the more you appreciate the simple things in life and cherish the one's you love.

happy birthday Craig :)

to enjoy the little things in life is for sure something you have to learn.
Now that i m force to stay at home, i learned this a bit more. The only thing what is important is to be healthy and that your familiy and friends feel good, too.
Few days ago *enjoyed* my birthday almost the same way like you. Just woke up, had breakfast, phoned a bit-and then just read a book while enjoying the sun for the whole day.

Stay healthy, best wishes from overseas,

Ingo :)

I would have gladly baked you an imaginary birthday cake. So sorry I missed your day. I remember spending my 40th in the hospital with my dad. And, I spent my 15th anniversary in the hospital with my dad. But, he was my best friend, other than Gene, so it was totally okay. Always spend the special days with someone special, whether 2-legged or 4-legged or other-legged. ;)

I had the feeling you were lonely. I feel kind of lonely when Carolyn is out of town and although I find ways to enjoy myself and don't get to feeling sorry for myself I still feel sort of let down that she's gone.

A birthday is just another day but there is something about it that makes it feel diffierent and it's much better when family and/or close friends are with me.

I hope you have peace and love in your life every moment Craig.

Well Craig happy birthday. I see you are as well aged as me now. Just remember things get better with age (yea right, tell my joints and feet that:thumbup:). But I'm glad you are well. And may the new year be better than the last.

Craig,

Here's your birthday fantasy dream.

You get a call on your 51st birthday from an attorney. It seems a rich uncle passed away and left you his cue collection. There are literally hundreds of fancy Balabushka's, Rambow's, and Szamboti's, most of which had never been seen by collectors, a wall full of Brunswick 360's and pristine 26 1/2's, and every imaginable antique French cue, every one of them perfectly straight!

Plus there is one Meucci Pink Wedding Day Barbie cue-of-the-month.

The lawyer opens the envelope and reads "to my nephew Manwon I bequeath one the the world's finest cue collections. To earn it, you must play pool in the roughest bar in town with the Meucci Pink Wedding Day Barbie on each and every future birthday!

Try not to get too hurt, and have a Happy Birthday! Sorry I missed it Craig.

Chris

Happy 51st. Sounds like you enjoyed sliding into 51. I was 51 just 25 years ago. Still shooting 8-ball and getting better every year. Princess and Shooter look like good company. Mr. Mouse better not come knocking.

Happy Birth-day sir! Hopefully your biz is doing great. I know you run a no BS establishment and cater to your players. Thus, your doing all right.
And as always, thanks for the many years of dedicated military service.

Happy birthday, Craig, hope it was a wonderful day and this year is one of the best ever for you. You put it very well, every day is a blessing. I had my 63rd this month and also attended the funeral of a friend who was several years younger. I'm on bonus time and truly appreciate the goodness I'm blessed with. Thanks for sharing.

Today is mine. Going to watch the Lambs get slaughtered by the Redskins, pretty bad when you start betting against your home team.
