Today I’d like to wish my good friend Jenn a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! While I haven’t had a chance to hang out with Jenn much these past few years (she and The Wife had a big falling out leading to a “loser leave town” type wrestling match which The Wife won… causing Jenn to leave our church and start her own. Is any of that true? I don’t know… it was all so long ago that I’m a little fuzzy on the truth right now), I still enjoy the random times she gets to see me around town. I’m sure Clark and her boys will make this a great birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY JENN!!!!!!!!!!
