OK, you just KNEW I couldn't a straight up birthday card ...

Thank you so much to Kathie for her kind permission to use the photo of the ultimate DD party animal! ;-) His partners-in-crime are my sweet Angus (left) and the mistress of disguise, Jazz.

To Katie, Randy and the CT -- The happiest of birthdays to you all! You have been inspiration, teachers, shoulders to cry on, and dear, dear friends and mentors! May there be many more such birthdays in your future!
