Now that sound like a luck number to me! Congratulations.
Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living.
Thanks for posting and congrats on your NEDiversary.
Congrats, Bill!! Lucky 13!!! (You might wanna play the lottery this week! *wink*)
Here's to many more NEDiversaries!!!! Love and miss you! *Hugz*
Life is NOT a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving in an attractive & well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand, strawberries in the other, body totally used up & worn out, & screaming WOOHOOO, WHAT A RIDE!!
Great news Bill...love to hear from NED long term survivors, hope to be there some day!!! Val
Live Laugh Love
Nothing is worth more than this day!
