My brother and sister’s birthdays are only two days apart and Sue has complained her whole life that we would go out and celebrate Songbae’s birthday with a restaurant of his choice, and then tell Sue that it was for her birthday too.

Well, for somebody SO NEGLECTED, she has come a long long way. And she knows how to have a good time too – so I have no doubt she’s doing things all the way she likes over there in England with friends and family.

But I do miss her and wish I could give her a birthday hug in person.

She’s one of those crazy luckys who’s got it all and does it all; I mean not only does she have her PhD, but when her kid’s toy cell phone breaks, she pulls out her soldering kit and fixes it!

Sue, impressing me with her soldering technique.

Even her boss appreciates that he has a good thing going with her around: He recently nominated her for a merit award based on “exceptional performance over a sustained period” and she got it. That, plus a raise – not bad, eh?

Sue, you are an exceptional sister – I hope you’re having a great 39th birthday!
