    >Happy belated birthday, and Happy Labor Day!

    Others would treat those as two separate days off, so enjoy!

    For me, your tips on writing exercise the dead meat I've had locked away for years, underutilized. As a result, I'm younger than when I first started following your blog. Thanks for the elixir!

    >Great to hear its your B'day. Of course, you are not getting old. You are younger than all of us because your ideas and creativity keep you evergreen and young.

    Many, many happy returns of the day. Enjoy your birthday and have a great blast.
