Countdown to 40 ~ 18 Days

Dear Ralph,

Only 18 more days until you turn 40. And while you weren't exactly the most, uh, attentive of students in your youth, you have certainly made up for that in recent years.

I love that you don't rush out and make impulse buys, but rather read up on certain products before you hand over your hard-earned money.

I also love how you read as much information as you can about your pets in order to make our house the best environment possible for them.

You are always researching something, whether it be the best place to buy that brand-name skateboard the boys want for their birthday, or what the newest development is in certain political and social matters.

The boys see you doing all this and you are setting a great example for them. They learn from you how to search the 'net and read everything from how to perform the latest skateboarding tricks to finding maps for the closest bus routes to school. You are teaching them invaluable skills, and it's wonderful to watch.
