Today is special.

It is my birthday.

74!

Wow!

Time moves on. Seems like just yesterday I was a kid.

The body ages a bit more each year. Have to watch out for it and take care of it.

The mind on the other hand seems to stay the same. I am still 35 in my head!

We celebrated the occasion last night with dinner at Lisa’s.

Lisa cooked a great meal. For me! Love her! My favorite foods. Fish, pasta and greens. And baked a cake, also. Chocolate with a white frosting. Another favorite!

Robert and Ally were all excited. They dressed for the occasion. Robert look like such a man in his sport shirt. Ally wore a dress. A lovely lady in the making!

They each hand painted cards for me. I hung them immediately on returning home on my kitchen wall. There was also a long sign on Lisa’s wall saying Happy Birthday Papa!

Lisa and Corey gave me one of those electronic picture frames. Age comes into play here. I do not know what it is called. But you load it with about 250 pics, plug it in and they play. One after the other. Lisa and Corey loaded it with photos of the grandkids and themselves. A great gift!

The candles were lit. Happy birthday was sung with Robert and Ally sitting on my lap. They helped me blow out the candles!

I enjoyed the evening. I enjoyed my Key West family. Thank you Lisa for loving me so much!

May I be here for 75 next year! And may all of you be with me, also!

Today is the real day. What will I do? We shall see!

Have a drink to me some time today! I will think of you all when I tip the first one tonight!
