What a guy!! Happy Birthday, Rob!

And isn't it great that 18 seems to be true for all men? I guess unless they're vegetarians. . .

Rob, Happy Birthday, man. I really didn't need to know about the sex part, but I'm glad you make my sister happy. At least I think so.

On a serious note, the mark of a man is to be loved by his wife and his children, and you have that in spades. A happy 40th to you!
