Birthday love

Dear Eagle County friends, on Oct. 27, I celebrated by 89th birthday. My daughter, Elaine, put out a request in the Vail Daily, asking friends and family to send me a birthday card in an attempt to get 89 cards. Well, the well-wishes far surpassed that, and we lost count at 118 cards! It did my old heart good to have so many people take the time to remember me with a birthday greeting! I heard from so many old and dear friends, and my family here in Mesa County had a birthday party that had 30 people in attendance! I would like to thank you all from the bottom of my heart! Your old friend, Ernie Brown.
