While searching, I saw many different birthday threads. So, I thought maybe a thread that's all inclusive for birthdays would be nice.
I'll start today!

Personally, I like separate birthday threads. It means more that way. Also, we don't have "official" or "ex cathedra" thread titles. :)

Separate birthday threads? For each member? That's going to be a lot of birthday threads.

Maybe we could have a separate birthday thread for each month. "The July Birthday Thread," for example.

Thank you so much! You did that only using iPhone apps?! I'm impressed how cleanly you extracted my photo from whatever background was originally behind me!

I'm just stating an opinion. We've done pretty well here up until now with separate threads. Separate birthday threads for about twenty active members, some of whom don't even have their birthday listed?

Besides, it's not even your birthday yet.

Separate birthday threads for each month would be awesome in my opinion. My birthday was on Friday. Happy birthday to me. Just another day though. 24 and moving forward.

My birthday was on June 13. I didn't get a separate birthday thread that I can remember. I like the idea.

Oops, sorry. Didn't realize I couldn't post my opinion until the day of my birthday. :)
Aren't we all entitled to our opinions? He started his post saying that he was stating his opinion. He never said you couldn't speak yours or that you had to wait until your birthday to do so.

I think separate birthday threads make more sense (if someone cares to start one for you). Obviously, most of us aren't going to get one, even the twenty or so active members. I also think it's odd to have a birthday thread started for someone several days before their actual birthday. I always wait until their actual birthday to say something. This is just my opinion.

I didn't mean to create disputation over birthday threads. It's not that important. Any which way is fine by me. We just need to...

My bad on the date. My calendar had it the 23rd. I must have screwed up when I set it. I didn't intentionally post it 3 days early. :oops:

My birthday was July 8 and I forgot to mention it here on the forum. One year I got a birthday thread. It was nice. I've been recovering from my ankle surgery and now going to physical therapy so I've been out of the loop a little.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ALL!

Thanks! Recovery is going well. Physical therapy is really really helpful. Thank you for wishing me a Happy B-Day.

You're welcome. I had physical therapy once when I dislocated my shoulder. They told me to wear the arm brace for two weeks. I disobeyed them. :p
