To My Best Friend: Happy Birthday Darrell!!!!

Don’t want to embarrass the “old” guy! ( I do believe he’s 24!), but today is Darrell Redmond’s Birthday! So Happy Birthday Darrell!!! And may this be your happiest, healthiest, and most productive year ever…it’s your time to shine, I say. 🙂

I would just like to personally thank you for being such a good friend to me…I would say my best friend, even though we have never met.

I love our emails, but more than that I love our telephone chats….and folks we talk several hours a week about everything (about some of YOU LADIES AND GERMS!, alot of ME!!! and a little DARRELL…LOL, and life in general)…without any outside interference…so it’s a great way to get to know someone. And I really treasure those phone calls. Read More

The two also offer a good rendition of “I Love Being Here With You.” Read More
