    And he has a job. He's still living with husband's mom, says that his bike was stolen, and that is about the long and the short of it. I just hope he actually keeps the job instead of using it to move in with some gullible prat to get out of "Granny's" house. I sent him a card with a $50 gift certificate to the grocery store. I didn't even remember until this morning...

    Can I get a "hootie-hoo!" for M and his job? I really hope that he figures out how to stick with it and get his own place. We'd help him out if he'd try, but getting a job and keeping a job are two different things.

    Well...Hootie Hoo! He is now a quarter of a century old. Maybe you could tape 4 quarters into the card and tell him he is one 4th over most probably his life. Whats he gonna do in the next quarter?

    Hootie-Hoo and Happy Birthday Too!

    Wishing M and his mother a wonderful birthday, and sending very good thoughts to both of you. Here's hoping this is a turning point for M.

    I'm hooting & hooing, too - and pretzeling that he keeps the job. They are HARD to find now.

    And - in my opinion - birthdays should be celebrated for the people who have done all the hard work. SO... HAPPY BIRTHDAY, WITZ!!! :wink:

    A job is a great thing! Now if only he could find in his mind the connection between having a stable job and having a stable home. I feel awful for not having great faith, but there have been so many disappointments...
