The only good thing about having a birthday at my age, I'll be 71 tomorrow, is I get to spend a couple of days at the smoker.

I just finished lunch. I had a sardine & onion sandwich, which is just about my favorite sandwich of all time.

The Lang is fired up with a rack of ribs on it.

Tomorrow morning Judy is making French toast with some of her homemade Challah bread. Probably have a beer with it too.

Not sure what I'll do for lunch, maybe some leftover ribs, if there are any.

I picked up a nice little Angus 2 bone prime rib for dinner tomorrow.

Judy is making me a cake, some exotic recipe off the internet. I'm sure it will be good.

All I gotta say is time sure flies by, enjoy every day cause some day you guys & gals will be right here where I'm at wondering where it all went.

Al, you are almost as old as I am. You will soon spend a lot of time thinking about the here after like I do. Everytime I go into the next room, I wonder "what am I here after"!!!

Happy birthday.

Happy birthday...

I'll be 52 next week, while not as experienced as you, I'm noticing how fast the yrs are ticking away.

Can't wait for Christmas

Can't wait for Supper

Can't wait for school to be out for Summer

Can't wait for Birthdays

Can't wait to be old enough to drive

Can't wait for Hunting Season

Can't wait for Fishing Season

Can't wait to be old enough to drink

Can't wait to come home from Vietnam & get out of Service

Can't wait for Hundreds of other things, and next thing ya know we're getting Old & we wished it !!!

Oh well, like I said, it's our own fault !!

BTW: Happy Birthday Al !!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY  my friend.  Hope you have a great day.

Next week I turn 68, so I'm not far behind you.  Just remember.....Any day you're not looking UP at turnip roots is a GOOD day.

Today is my birthday. The next time you can read my age right side up or upside down, I'll be 88.

It now takes all night long to do what I used to do all night long.

Happy birthday, Al. Many more
