Thanks ya'll! I quit having birthdays.... somewhere around the time AARP was like hounds on my tail.
It was truly a perfect day! Up early to mow the redoubt at Ft Adams before the volunteer crew showed up. Then mowed the crown works and the place d arms (that's French) where I had scraped and York raked and it's been seeded. After that was off to Buzzard's Bay brewery to fill some jugs, they were having a big lawn party, but I couldn't stay. For the evening, had a great time at good friend's surprise 40th anniversary party.... Super company and dinner. Managed to not tell a soul all day it was one of very many birthdays now in the history books!
Things don't get any better than that!
