Crossing the 25,000-page-views threshold

04 Feb

I am sorry I couldn’t be there for your birthday Joel, but I wanted to tell you something I thought you would like. Your blog just crossed 25,000 page views today. There’s a lot of people out there who care for you.

Actually, the count is up to 25,100 as of 3 p.m. Central time. That’s a lot. People also have left 680 comments on the blog so far. Those are some good numbers, and I think is a testament to how important you are in my life, our family’s life, Erika’s life and to all of your friends’ lives. Happy Birthday big brother.

    Wow! So today is the big day that you don’t want to think about (turning 30)! And just think how much you have to look forward to with all the progress you have made thus far. We feel a little guilty telling you HB when you have made it clear that this is not the best reason you have for celebrating today. Your best reason has to be the love and support of your family and friends, and knowing there are 25,000+ good thoughts continuing to come your way. Love to you , and keep on smiling!

    Happy Birthday Joel!!!

    Here in cold MN we are thinking of you on your BIG 3 0! Crazy how quickly life goes… seems just like yesterday you were walking home from my parents house after an “illegal” shin dig in high school 🙂 Oh, did I just say that on the internet where our parents can see? Ah, oh well… good times!

    Have an awesome day!

    Happy birthday, man. And as much as I am flattered by your new do, I regret to inform you that you are just plain not cool enough to pull off being me. If you do not rectify this situation immediately I will be forced to take legal action against you. See you in court, and once again happy birthday,
