"Hi everyone!"

First off, thanks for sending me your great birthday cards and gifts. My big day was terrific. My staff friends threw a great party for me. Virginia, Bruce, and Paul visited me a week before my birthday celebration.

Thanks, too, for returning and taking another peek at my Web pages. Here at Congers House (The Association for Retarded Citizens of Rockland), the staff will soon begin to decorate my home with upcoming holiday decorations.

Plus, guess who sent me another birthday card. Sure, I got cards from my friends and family. But I was thrilled when I opened an envelope addressed to me that came from the White House. Yes, President Obama and the First Lady were kind enough to send me a personal birthday card this year that I'll keep forever! The staff put last year's memorable card in a beautiful frame that I proudly keep on my photo table next to my bed. Here's a picture of the special framed card from President George Bush and First Lady Laura, that I'm holding as I wear my neat New York map T-shirt.

By the way, do you know what age I turned on May 31? I'll give you a clue: I was born in 1945.

Here's a birthday photo from last year with Virginia, Paul, and Bruce.

Good news! Warren selected a number of photos of me (ranging in age from 1 to 62 years old) and created a new photo album for you to enjoy right now! He even turned another of my photos into a cool photo jigsaw puzzle that I'd like you to try to solve.

I'd love to see more pictures of me and my family. Do you have a few to loan Warren? If not, please visit me and take some new pictures! Email or snail-mail them to Warren and he'll update my Web pages for everyone to enjoy, especially me, when one of my helpers here brings me to her computer and opens my very own website. I love my website — I can't wait to see it again.

My Yankees might become the World Series Champions again. Last summer, I toured the new Yankee Stadium. Warren has the photos and will create a new slideshow soon.
