For a few days this past week, I actually thought I would get away with having a birthday over which my radio friends did not make a big deal!

I could not have been more wrong!  Last night, during Bad Karma’s show, once again my radio family showed me their love by giving me a fantastic online birthday party!  You would think by now that I would expect it (and in truth, I sorta did) but when it didn’t happen on the weekend OF my birthday, I thought maybe I’d gotten away clean.  Once again they outfoxed me and surprised me with a six hour gala of my favorite music and recorded personal greetings.

These parties are always tremendous fun, but I must admit that they make me just a little uncomfortable.  I suppose it’s because I am a more outwardly emotional person than I am comfortable with being.  Normally that’s not much of a problem at all, but I find all the personal greetings and well wishes choke me up and bring the tears pretty easily.

Yeah, I know… I should just suck it up and live with it.  After all, no one would go out of their way to make me feel uncomfortable on purpose.  I guess I am just one of those people for whom certain things penetrate deep within me.  I suppose that puts me in relatively good company, given our new Speaker of the House, John Boehner, seems to have the same affliction!  Wow, I actually have something in common with one of the few politicians for whom I have some respect.

ANYWAY, I want to thank each and every one of my friends for all the love and support they give me, and for all they do for our station! You are all,

Simply the Best!
