Birthday celebrations


As many of you know, thanks to Connie and Steve Kuusisto, today is my birthday, my 21st to be exact. Yes, now I am legal.

When I was little, I would eagerly look forward to my birthday, particularly my birthday parties. Whether it was playing freeze tag in a swimming pool, going to a Chicago Wolves ice hockey game, or playing basketball with a hoop that was lowered to my level, I had good times with my friends, playing games suited to my abilities and going to events that were wheelchair accessible. During my birthday parties, my differences didn't matter. I was just a boy having fun with his friends.

Thank you for the birthday wishes,

David

Hope you have a wonderful day and enjoy whatever previouslly illegal activities you are now alllowed to do (in the UK, 21 just means you can run for parliament).

David,
Happy birthday to you--and to your sisters, too. Since it is also Jeff's birthday, we always think of the three of you on this date, and hope your shared birthday, celebrated separately, will bring you all joy and good things in the coming year.
Marybeth and Jeff

Happy Birthday David! And as my mother always says, birthdays are celebrations for parents as well - we have much to be thankful for. So wish your folks a happy day for us to!

Hey, old man!

Uncle Mark is behind the times with a card...sorry. I'd get one, but he and I have seriously different tastes in cards. He's been working like a madman, trying to get hte system online for Monday.

Hugs and Kisses!
