Wink Re: Yo, zippy_gg ....

Thank you all! Had a great days with my 3 daughters (something that doesn't happen often enough) and Kathy. There was no cake large enough for the candles (plus it would have created a wax museum!) but I still had nice pastries at 2 of my favorites places in Burbank.
No ride today as I have the kids, but we are going to Fort Bragg this coming weekend to make up for it.
It's great to be me today...!

Happy Birthday, my friend. I'm glad you're having such a banner day with your family. Enjoy it to the max. Kind regards, Don Miller

No, I am afraid I am going to miss it for the first time. Finances are a bit tight this year. Have a Scotch Egg for me.

Re: Yo, zippy_gg ....

Gilles, Sorry I missed your birthday. I am glad you had a great one. Here's to another good year for you. Tell Kathy I said hello. Looks like I will not be able to attend Fort Bragg again this year, So I hope to see you elsewhere real soon.

Happy Birthday Buddy. Your catching up to me fast and will most likely pass me. I think I see a trike in you future???? See you Friday AM for the ride north. Vickie thinks I should go with her to take my mother-in-law to dinner for her birthday Thursday.
