Belated Birthday Celebration

Yesterday we rode Chris's age on the tandem, but after that, grocery shopping, two wine tastings, and assorted errand-running, we ran out of steam for the celebratory dinner.

Tonight Chris did it up right. While he was prepping food we enjoyed this:

While it's very tasty when new, it's even better a year or two later.

Then we ate this:

That's deviled lobster, girlled zucchini, carrots, onions and red peppers. We had a nice Spanish Granacha and a spinach salad with that.

My gift to him:


No bikes were ridden today. Tomorrow, however, is another day.

When I was composing that post the picture showed up as if it were part of the post. I didn't realize until I posted it that it just gives a link.

Oh, well, better HTFU when it comes to the new BF look.

Happy Birthday to Chris!

Well, I guess it did say what I thought it might!

I would rather wear one that said "Pass the Pie"

Happy birthday to chris- but you had better make it up to him sometime. After the Tandem ride he was moaning that he had to cook the dinner

Don't if you have it over there but we have a garment name of" French Connection United Kingdom"

That always gets a second glance-or used to- from the Grannies when it is adorned on the front of a T or sweater ****.

Guessed that would happen but take the 1st initial of each word and it is a genuine brand over here and not a spelling mistake.
