This is Dale, Alys' jerk husband. I let my wife down, and as part of my repentance I need to publicly confess and apologize to her. Yesterday was Alys' birthday! Nope, I didn't forget. But I did a very poor job of making her feel special. Frankly I'm embarrassed at my weak effort. Edward would NEVER let Bella down like that! Among all the many things I could have done, this post should have been made yesterday so that all of her friends could comment to let her know how gorgeous, talented, loving, loyal, funny, warm, smart, righteous, kind, sweet, and fancy she is. I love you, Alys! Please keep me!
