Happy Birthday to…

I remember birthdays past.

When I was a kid, my mom used to make a big deal of our birthdays.
This one year, mom set-up a table by balancing a bunch of boards across a couple oil barrels and setting-out such a feast! Friends came from all over the neighborhood to have cake and punch.

There were games and fun and everyone with their party clothing on.

Another year we all went to a local pony ring to have pony rides on my birthday. I've kind-of gotten out of the practice of having a big celebration of my birthday... it just seemed a lot of work to go through.

A couple years ago, I went to Amsterdam to celebrate my birthday, spent some time bumming around the town and taking in the sites. I have no big plans for today, myself. Of course, I may, at the spur of the moment, make a plan... who can tell.

Wherever you are today, I hope that you will have a great day!
