Mr. Shife's March Madness 2016 - Day 17

I'm a big fan of St. Patrick's Day for obvious reasons, but as some of you may know, I think the best reason is that it's also my lovely wife's birthday.
Today was a milestone birthday for as she turned 18 with 22 years of experience.
The big 4-0.
I wanted to do something special for her because she's my wife and because she's amazing.
And because I also did something special for her when she turned 30.
All the details are here in case you are wondering about her 30th, http://www.mrshife.com/2006/03/surprise-surprise.html, but if you want the Cliffs Note version here you go: I was able to have all of our families show up in town to surprise on her special day.
I knew that wasn't possibility for her 40th.
But about 10 days before her birthday I came up with the idea.
I reached out to family, friends, coworkers and a guy from Jamaica (seriously I paid a Rastafarian 5 bucks on fiverr.com to wish her a happy birthday), and everyone came through big time.
Coincidentally I got 40 videos for her 40th.
Pretty cool, huh?
Below is the video she got from my new best Jamaican buddy.
Good luck trying to understand.
It took me about 4 views.
And if you are savvy enough you can follow the bread crumbs to watch the other videos people made for the lovely Mrs. Shife.



I love that lady. She is my everything and I'm grateful I get to spend the rest of my life with her.

Thanks for stopping by. Talk to you tomorrow .... maybe.
I plan on posting something, but tomorrow is the surgery and I'm not sure how I will be feeling because this is the first time I have ever had a hole drilled into my skill.
I will post something. It might just be a picture of the kiddos, but I'm going to finish March Madness.


I will persevere. I will keep moving forward. I will be the stream.

Happy Birthday to your lady wife. I watched the video and got the idea that happy tears would flow when the good lady saw it.

Best of luck with the drilling, Matt.

I think you are as equally special as your wife, to pull something like this off for her. Wishing you the best today with your surgery and I hope that organization is able to help you out a bit.
