Roddie Macchi, I want to wish you a phenomenal birthday today. I cannot tell you what a great feeling it is to wake each day and have a reliable grid to login to call home. Some of us, live virtually because of the limitations on life. You have given me not only a home, you have also given a me a position, that I can truly be proud of, thank you. Your love for this grid is boundless and everlasting and for that I am truly grateful, Happy Birthday, hugs.
Since today is Roddie's Birthday, I thought it would be fun to share salutations from the residents of the community! In doing so, I discovered it is also Jen Smith and Maximus Lear's Birthday too!! Happy Birthday Jen!! Best wishes Max!!

Trey Magnifique: So's I been thinking about the wishin', an' I'm guessing the good ones have been all done up. And I'd still like to be saying that 50 years old is a milestone earned not on the cheap. Like, ya gotta stay on some scary narrow paths sometimes ta get ta the 50, like. A celebration ain't quite a celebration iffn the path is too narrow, neither. So's ya has ta kinda does a whiskey dance, even iffn you don't touch the whiskey, cuz my Mum, she was always whackin' on Da's hand iffn he tried to touch the whiskey and it weren't no special day. But fifty years is special. So's find yer whiskey thing and dance and that's my wishin' fer that Happy Birthday wishin'.
Whisper Carfield: You think you're special because today it is you're birthday? But that's not true, you're special every day! Happy Birthday!!
Bec Jigsaw: Happy Birthday Roddie! May all your dreams and wishes come true today and every day! Steven Strikker & Bec Jigsaw
Justin Tyme: Happy Birthday Roddie! To another 50 years of being young!
Tigerkitti Eberdene: Well what to say when someone turns 50? First thing I would say is Roddie, you are now coming into the BEST part of your life. The part where you realize things you fretted over in the past were not worth your time. You start to see fruit on the trees of your own creations. You discover that being your own worst critic was not worth it and hey! You really LIKE yourself. Letting go of toxic situations or even people becomes easier. If is much easier to see who is and is not on your side. The wisdom you gained from all that experience is not only helpful, but you can pass that on to help others.
Best of all Roddie is, that all your hard work, accomplishments and trials are noticed. People see how much you care, and you are adored for that. Here's to another 50+. Happy Birthday my friend. Hugs
