Thanks . . . but . . . 49 not 50

Everyone has been so sweet in sending Dad birthday wishes.
But we all had a good laugh at the confusion that I created with my last post.
I said he was starting his 50th year which many thought that meant he is turning 50.
What it actually meant was that he is approaching 50, living his 50th year, almost 50, 49-yrs-old, etc.
Just like a baby when born is living their 1st year of life and that full year is celebrated at the end of the year.  So, if you wished him happy 50th this year, you'll get to repeat that again next year.
I'll make sure there isn't any confusion about that number!
