Yesterday was my sister's birthday, same age as Ann.

OTOH, we finally found a home for Morstan; a co-worker of The Blonde, it turned out.

Gonna miss those little crumb-snatchers.

Remember what happened to him.

Does he get more than a blog post for a present?

I'm not sure what I'll get my kids for birthdays once they're in their mid-20s. I get $x from my parents, where x is my age. I usually buy a nice bottle of liquor with it.

My two sons have the same birthday but not the same date of birth: they were born exactly five years apart from one another.

This was, in fact, the result of a thoughtful decision on the part of my elder son. To avoid the chance that she'd have to submit to the care of a replacement OB/GYN, my ex-wife and her doc (who were med-school classmates of one another) had already decided that they were going to induce my wife's labor before her doc went on a long vacation. (It was already a full-term pregnancy.) My first son's birthday was within the five or six-day window of opportunity, so we asked him whether he wanted to share his birthday with his new brother or have separate birthdays -- for the rest of their lives. We discussed the pros and cons -- an exceptionally bright almost-five year old can visualize things like future birthday parties pretty well -- and he decided that he wanted to share his birthday because it would make them "special brothers."

Both brothers have been delighted with the decision ever since, and I believe that conscious act of sharing has influenced their relationship for the better in subtle but profound ways.

WV: "karrot," to go with my schtick.

My wife and I have the same birthday... one year apart. When people see the dates on forms they assume it's an error and ask about it.

Hope you had a good birthday Chris.

(A day late, and a dollar short.)

Pretend I'm writing in California. :-)
