Garrett (13, HLHS) didn't have any clothes the right color, but wanted it noted that his choice of a Rudy-blue pen duly noted. (small world--Rolf and Garrett's Mom went to HS together in NJ.)

 Thanks everyone!  It was fun to see all of your celebrations and be overwhelmed by the number of cards and birthday greetings.  One last time—Happy Birthday, Rudy!
