I really liked this. What I admire most about Troy is something you already said--that he tries to see the good in people. Happy Birthday!

Paul said...

A back-flipping husband with a cute butt. The perfect man. Enjoy the day Troy.

Susan said...

Another thing about Troy - he loves to make up his own sayings, hoping that they will gain mainstream popularity and use (e.g, punch it in the bag!).

Happy Birthday Troy!

Melanie said...

Happy Birthday!

The Perkins said...

Happy Birthday Uncle Troy! Hope you had a wonderful day, love ya!

Shelby said...

Wow, Dave is older than Troy.

I regret that we never played Hearts--I'm kind of a champion myself.

so Happy Birthday to a fellow moon-shooter.

Amy said...

I've seen the back-flip firsthand and I was impressed.

Happy Birthday Troy... I'm still waiting to find the perfect gift in purple velvet to give you on your birthday... (in case you're wondering why I didn't send one)

Have a wonderful day!

Oh and Troy- thanks for backing me up on the picture thing.... :)

I think there were only three of those things I didn't already know.

Troy you are by far the most positive person I have ever met! I love that about you!

Happy Birthday!

I forgot to say, "Go Class of '91!"
