Happy birthday! I’ll bet it doesn’t feel like 70 years have gone by.
Not inside my head, no, but some mornings when I get up the body tells me it’s been even longer.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY! 70 is the new 60!
Happy Birthday, Rick. Hope you are celebrating with a book-buying binge.
Not buying many, just a couple, but I got a couple as gifts. Probably wind up with 4 or so. I did not go to the County Library book sale today. I was afraid to.
It’s gratifying to know that you are ages older than I am, Richard. (Well, maybe not ages but at least twelve months and four days.) Hope you are kicking up your heels, spreading your wild oats, painting the town red, or whatever it is old folks do on their birthday.
Enjoy the day.
In my case, Jerry, it was open a couple presents, go out to lunch, have a cup of joe, wobble out to get the mail, and now I’m looking at the blog. Tonight, Monday Night Football, and early to bed to get my beauty sleep.
Happy Birthday, old timer.
Just kidding! You’re only a few years ahead of me. Hope it was a good one. What did you have for lunch? Anything exciting?
Grilled ham, turkey, bacon and swiss on dark rye, German potato salad, chocolate-raspberry ganache cake, coffee.
Happy birthday, a date you share with my girl Stephanie. She’s 26 today.
Comgratulations chum – that is a very handsome number indeed – keep it up sport 🙂
Happy Birthday, Richard! Health and Happiness to you and yours!
Thanks, everyone, today it’s back in the routine, which is still mighty good.
Have a great one!
“Oh frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!” (I’m chortling in my joy.) Happy 70th! My sister celebrated the same day two weeks ago. Long life to all!
Way to hang in there, pal. I hear 70 is the new 60!
Maybe if I were hiking and being outdoors the way you are, but 70 seems like 70 from here in my comfy reading chair.
