don't feel bad hb.
we didn't celebrate my birthday last year. dw said she was so busy with the baby the she had no time to shop, and offered to take me to a store to get something that day, but it seemed like it was too much of a bother so i just skipped it.
same went for father's day, and it's looking like this year's birthday will be the same.
the odd thing is i don't need or really want anything, so the lack of a gift doesn't bother me. a card or a hug woulda been nice, but you can't get blood from a stone.
i would have been happy with the present mugsy suggested, tho.
andy, it's either an apology, or a gift, depending on the effort.
