In case you’re not on Facebook and you don’t get those nifty little birthday notifications, I thought I’d give you a chance to send me your birthday platitudes right here on the blog. If you are on Facebook and you’re not my friend, what the hell? Friend me already. If you don’t know me personally, friend me and send a note mentioning this post. That way you can get my contact information and send me a birthday gift. I like gadgets and hookers.
You’re probably wondering how old I am. Frankly, so am I. I have to do the math in my head. I’m not very good at math. It takes me some time even though I’m sitting here in front of a big calculator. You see, I’m not very good at calculators, either. Most of my calculators have been attached to computers and the calculator is always the most boring part of the computer. So I never use it. Anyway, I’m guessing I’m about 40.
Since I’m 40 now I bet you’d like to do something nice for me. If so, don’t send me a gift. Instead, send a check to my dad’s scholarship fund. My dad was responsible for Indiana being a technology leader, so the scholarship goes to an Indiana high school student who has shown an interest in technology.
Check payable to:
Blackford County Community Foundation, Inc. Write “David C. Ford Scholarship” in the memo line.

Thanks, and Happy Birthday.
