My 63rd birthday. Another day full of doctor's visits interspersed by looking out for wife-beating arsonists.

You know, they say that gettin' old ain't for the fainthearted. Given my experiences in the three and a half years since they took the stomach tumor and eighty percent or so of my guts, I reckon they're right. Still, they wrote me off as a poor actuarial risk at the time of the surgery and then again when the hospital gave me a MRSA infection but I'm still here so I figure God's still got something in mind for me. Now, if I can just figure out what it is . . . In any case, I'm trying to make what time I have left count. Whether I succeed or not is for God to judge later. Drink water and drive on, as my son says.
I'll try to have more this afternoon. No rest for the weary, as they also say.

Happy birthday, Mike.
I know it's not in the cards, but try to enjoy YOUR day, and Give Thanks that you're another day above ground, vertical and ventilating.

Happy Birthday.

Brings newly literal meaning to the old children's taunt:
"Happy Birthday to you. You live in a zoo..."

It has been quite a year so far. Happy Birthday. Keep it up. I am going to be some kind of pissed if the 100 Heads Life Insurance Co. has to waste a bullet on that double chined grease ball when the local PD should have handled it.

Continue to expose evil until the end of your course. That would be my guess as to what the will of God would have you do. Happy Birthday, amid the many trials. I hope you have many more, with constantly improving conditions.

Have as happy a birthday as is possible under the circumstances, Mike.

You're upright and taking air, as they say!

May God Bless you and give you respite from suffering, and thank you from the bottom of my heart for all that you have done and are doing for the cause of Liberty.

Happy Birthday, ya ole grouch. If it weren't so sketchy, what with the country and your personal difficulties, imagine how bored you'd be. As it is, try to have some cake and mebbe a shot of the old Scotch. And don't forget to count your blessings. It could all be a lot, lot, worse.

Happy birthday, Mike and wishing you many more.

Personally, I believe you are doing exactly what God has planned for you all along; standing as a watchman over our rights and being a poked Badger on the heals of those who would trample upon those rights.

Happy Birthday, Mike.
And yes, God always has a plan for us, sometime we don't know what it is.
Romans 8:28
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.

Happy Birthday, young man! No, I mean that literally. I just found out that I'm a year and a half older than you. See? There are benefits to stopping Domino from stealing all the Bushmills...
God bless and keep you!

Happy Birthday Mike. I've never been the same after coming here the first time. Thanks for all you do to keep the liberty fire burning. I never knew how important the 2nd Amendment was, until I came here. Keep up the good fight and try to have a great day and many more B'days.
