CJ's Birthday

Today is our son CJ’s thirty-fourth birthday. I don’t feel old enough to have a son that age, but the wrinkled face in the mirror assures me it’s true. Mrs. C. and I were twenty-eight and had already been married six years when we had our one and only child. Since we’ve known each other since high school it isn’t inconceivable that we could have a son in his forties. I shiver at the thought. Read about CJ (here).



  1. happy birthday to your son...
    and what heartwarming the one of the garbage liner...
    i have been there as a father so it tugged me pretty good...
    the day is coming...ha

  2. Happy birthday to him

    My oldest brother is a tad older than CJ. My mom is about to be in her mid-50s. Now that he's about to get close to 40 in a few years, I tease my mom with "you're old". She doesn't like the thought either.

  3. Hi Stephen, thanks for the visit and kind comment and for following - I have just signed up to you as well.
    Happy Birthday to CJ. My daughter is 32 and son is 22, Had them rather late in life. Lost my wife last year unfortunately after 40 year marriage.

    Just off to read about your son.
    Nice to meet you ~ Eddie
