Happy Birthday!

"I'm sorry to miss your birthday."

"Forty-four," he said.  "I'm afraid I'm beginning to look it."

"The easy part is over."

"It was easy?"

"We're entering the underground river," she said.  "Do you know what I mean?"

"Yes, I know."

"It's ahead of us.  All I can tell you is, not even courage will help."

Congratulations, Todd!  One year closer to the river!
