While we were in Austin last weekend, we celebrated our son's birthday a little early (it was yesterday). And we got a surprise. He was trying to read the back of a DVD pack and couldn't. Judy pulled out a pair of old magnifying glasses she'd bought years ago and handed them to him. He was amazed to discover how easily he could read the words and how clear they were. It was a little of a shock to us to me and Judy to realize that he's starting to get far-sighted. How can that happen to someone who's so young? Well, maybe 41 isn't that young, after all, come to think of it. Happy birthday, Allen!
