Happy Birthday to Me!

It’s my birthday today, 74 years now, and I’m still ticking along in spite of a few maladies. But I take my meds, watch my diet and exercise when I can, so it’s good.

I have some presents to open, and if they’re any books of interest I’ll post on them Monday instead of current reading.

Barbara is making a pork shoulder roast, stuffing, and steamed asparagus, with brownies and ice cream for dessert. Yum! We’ll probably watch the Oregon Ducks play at Washington State, 7:30 our time.

Meanwhile, I hope everyone has a great day!

    Enjoy the day, my friend. And if there are any leftovers…well, I accept doggie bags.

    Happy Birthday, Rick. Sounds like a delicious dinner and a fun day. I look forward to hearing about any new books.

    My 71st birthday is coming up very shortly. And retirement at the end of the year.

    • Thanks, Tracy. Birthdays are great, but that retirement is the big thing. I was able to retire early with a “gold parachute” from Orange County and have now been retired almost 16 years!

      I have already scanned the books and set up the post for Monday. As I type this, dinner is about two hours away.

        16 years ago! I am envious. I have been ready to retire for 3 or 4 years, but we felt like our financial situation would be better if I hung on for a while.

    Sorry I missed this yesterday – we were in the city seeing a show off-Broadway – so a belated Happy Birthday! Yes, retirement is the big thing – Jackie retired ‘young’ at (almost) 56, and there have been no regrets one day since. Sounds like a great birthday dinner too. Sorry you won’t be at Bouchercon in Dallas.
