    I took the day off from work. Spent the morning with my blue Strat and my looper. My wife pretended she liked my playing, so that's nice.

    Spent a couple of hours with the dogs. I'm about to head out the door with my wife and daughter (and my daughter's boyfriend, but he's actually a pretty good kid) for a nice dinner and probably a couple of drinks.

    I feel like the older I get, the better things are. I'm blessed way beyond what I deserve.

    Happy Birthday!

    I just turned 30 myself recently. It’s nice to know it gets better as we age! :p

    My dad always tells me when you hit 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s.. I just smile!

    Enjoy! Sounds like you are blessed. I just had my 73rd. Feel like 40 though. Maybe even younger.
