Happy Birthday Lee!! Lee turns 55 today-unbelievable!! I think he is undoubtedly the youngest looking and acting 55 year old around. I remember seeing a shirt on a trip to Germany that said, "Growing old is inevitable, growing up is optional". I should have bought it for him. Not that he isn’t mature but he has more fun in life, enjoys sports, hunting, etc, and goofs off like he is still 20. He still manages to pound (his words) the college guys at Healthsport on a daily basis in basketball that he plays on his lunch hour. He hunts as much as he can, fishes, and even snowboards (and keeps up with Chris and Jody). It is no wonder there is not an ounce of fat on his lean body. And yes I am jealous, big time. He spends every Saturday with his best pal, Ammon. They do whatever Ammon wants. All day long. I wish the other grandboys lived closer so they could have fun with him. He is an amazing grandfather. I remember when our kids played sports, he would travel anywhere to watch them play. I am sure that with 5 children you could count on one hand the games he missed. And if he had to miss one because of job or church obligations, you would think the world was going to end. He has been an amazing father. Presently his time consumed by his duties as 1st Counselor in the Stake Presidency. He has been a Bishop, Branch President, High Councilor, Seminary teacher, etc. and willingly and very competently fulfilled those duties. He is a dynamic speaker and is so friendly and supportive to the members of our Stake. He is an amazing Priesthood holder. He has a very crazy sense of humor that sometimes drives me to distraction but is never boring. He has always been a loving and supportive husband and I love him very much! I’ve even been beating him in cribbage lately! Happy birthday, honey!! Almost 32 years together-crazy, huh? Senior citizen discounts start now. Yahoo!
