Two milestones

Thursday was my 14th anniversary at the Daily Bulletin, and today is my 47th birthday. I’m going to celebrate by attending an Upland council meeting tonight. No rest for the wicked (a category that may include the Upland council).

    Happy Birthday, David!

    Hopefully my birthday message gets to you this year…maybe it will be the first birthday message post, too! Enjoy your day and eat lots of birthday cake!

    Hi David, hope you have great birthday all day long. Am faithful reader of your column, even more so now that I am retired.

  • John Clifford

    Happy Birthday from one Pisces to another.

    GREETINGS:

    No doubt about it, you are a survivor. I just don’t know which is more impressive — 47 years of tuna melts or 14 years covering the Inland Valley. Congratulations on both and best wishes for 47 more (in honor of the Claremont random number)!

    Happy, happy, David!

    Ya know, I’ve had a few birthday celebrations that were less than stellar, but I don’t remember one as dismal as attending an Upland council meeting. Maybe there will be fireworks to liven things up.

    Hopefully, you will be with a friend or two later to put a proper gladness note on the occasion.

    If there will be cake think of me with your first bite.

    Enjoy, whatever you do.

    [I'm afraid the Upland meeting is it for the day -- but I had lunch with one group of friends Saturday and dinner and bowling with another group on Sunday, so I'm satisfied. -- DA]

    News Agent 47, I once had to spend a birthday evening at a council meeting…wouldn’t have been my first choice. I’m sure you’re aware that you share a birthday with a man known for his hairstyle (and that whole relativity thing). Cheers!

    Happy Birthday whippersnapper. Put another candle on that tuna melt today.

    Happy birthday David, and congrats on 14 years at the Bulletin.

    Happy 47th David! You are a really bright spot in our beloved Inland Empire. We look forward to enjoying your perceptive and wry commentary for another 14 years at least.

    Happy belated birthday! So, you were born on pi day (3.14), you’re a PIsces, and I believe you enjoy pie. Coincidence? Or are you actually superhero PieMan, hiding behind the mild-mannered newspaper reporter by day? Hmmm…

    As a “former” employee of the IVDB, all I can say is that I am truly blessed to be able to call David a friend and to wish him a Happy Birthday. Also, between David, “China Girl” Wendy, “Miss O” Liset, “Miss P” Monica, “Little Lainey” and “Diana Italiana”…I would have no other reason to be a subscriber…Giddy Up!!!!

    [Sounds like plenty of reasons! -- DA]
