One More Candle...
WHEW! STILL VERTICAL!
Yep, that's right... today I'll add one more candle to that cake and hope the Costa Mesa Fire Department doesn't show up to extinguish the flames!
CELEBRATING WITH MY SISTER
I began celebrating this newest milestone Sunday with my baby sister (HER big day is next Sunday) when she and her husband and another old friend (they're all old now) came to dinner. So, since it was hot as heck and we are not air conditioned, we chose to venture out to one of our favorite restaurants - which IS air conditioned - for the celebration. We then returned home for a nice, big chunk of my mother's recipe chocolate cake in a bowl of milk. Yep, I still celebrate my birthday that way.
AND ANOTHER FAMILY EVENT
Last night we continued celebrating with another family gathering. I'm sure they all figure I might not remember just one, so they're covering all the bases. This time I had "birthday pie" - and it wasn't humble, which will surprise nobody, I'm sure.
NO SURPRISES, PLEASE
I have no idea what kind of birthday celebration we'll have today... surprises are bad on the hearts of guys my age. We'll just go with the flow...
AND MANY MORE....
So, to all of us celebrating a birthday today, August 14th, here's a little something for us from the Beatles... enjoy.
