1) I have just 3 short years left till a big 4-0 of my own; and,
2) the Brian Setzer Orchestra recorded a fantastic song called Let's Live It Up in 1998, which starts with this lyric:
What an awesome thing it is to hit a major milestone birthday and have people who love you enough to throw you a party. Just to celebrate you for being you! Awesome, I tell you.
Happy birthday, Dave!! Happy birthday, Brian!!
