Now that we got that out of the way, here's the kind and tender message Kate sent me via an e-card:
You are about to embark on another year, and as long as you sleep good at night, don't eat that nasty sugar, drink too much wine or wear yourself out trying to get that housework done, you can enjoy your life. Look at all you have to look forward to - more moles and hair, more wrinkles and varicose veins, more joint replacements and just when you think it can't get any better - memory loss. Of course, I am not really sure you have a memory anyway so that's probably better.
Your Old Sis,Kate
