Florida AIDS Walk

Welcome to another day in my life. Today is Sunday and my birthday so it is a great day here in South Florida. It is also the local AIDS walk today so I am writing this very early and will add more later.

Today I turned 48 and celebrated by volunteering and walking at the Florida AIDS Walk. We had over 6,000 people walk today and it was a great time had by all. I even got to spend some time with Ryan White's mother, Jeanne (in the pic with me) who I had not seen in over a year. So that was my special birthday present for the day.

Of course as always, I was taking pictures with Dab the AIDS Bear and speaking at the event. It was great meeting so many new people since I have just recently moved to the Fort Lauderdale area. I would like to thank everyone for the outpouring of love I was shown. It really touched me.

I was also overwhelmed by all the email, cards and over 5,000 birthday message between facebook and myspace. Thank to everyone who took the time to wish me a happy birthday. You folks really know how to make a guy feel loved.

Getting ready to listen to POZIAM Radio this evening so will cut this short. But I hope all of you are having a safe and great weekend.

Until we meet again; here's wishing you health, hope, happiness and just enough...

big bear hug,

Daddy Dab
