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!
Happy birthday and many more! Have a wonderful day!
Aww, thank you, Margot.
Takes a licking and keeps on ticking. Keep on keepin’ on,sir!
That’s the plan, man, that’s the plan.
Have a great day, Richard!
Enjoy the day, my friend. And if there are any leftovers…well, I accept doggie bags.
But…you’re not a dog!
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.
