Happy birthday to everyone I've missed over the past few years. Your card is in the post etc.

I share my birthday with Charlize Theron, David Duchovny and other 'famous' people.

Thanks for the birthday greetings! Just getting back from a week in the remotes of the N Cali coast.

Went on several 10 mile hikes and only ran into a few other explorers. Sweet etiquette was practiced on the trails - when you would see someone coming both parties would stop and mask up before passing. Only once did the male of a couple not do it, even though his female partner did. As we passed by she said something I couldn't understand. I asked my daughter what did she say? She said "Sorry, he's a Trumpty-dumpty". I laughed so hard my mask got wet.

My daughter bought me a puzzle, which we enjoyed putting together on my birthday eve. Here is the finished masterpiece. john-lennon-salute_gif

Trumpty-dumpty... I like that, that's cute. I think I'm going to call myself that instead of "deplorable" from now on a-hard-days-night-george-9

Happiest Birthday (s) vonbontee & Von Bontee.

For your amusement, here are your initials in maple leaves.

This is appropriately named brew, as your music reviews are also pure gold.

Something seems odd about this flag, but maybe it's just because I recently returned from Humboldt County.

I thought it was cute too @beatlbug, they seemed very happy. I wonder if he has a nickname for her.
