Happy birthday to me...
My 50th just got alot better!
Today, is a big day for me ... I'm 50! Although the thought of turning this pivotal age was so intimidating, now that I'm here it was certainly more of a chore getting here. I've never felt more mentally & physically better than ever. Must be the benefit from all the riding.
This morning started out ... with work. I promised myself not to stray close to the computer, but the pull was too strong. By noon I was finished and it was out to my favorite sushi eatery with Carolle & my old friend Jim. Then off to see and enjoy the company of my twin brother, Ron. It's kind of fun to celebrate it twice. It was so hot we indulge with a couple of beers in the shade. A couple of nice gifts from him is the Glenlivet & the Spanish Red Marques de Rojas. As a matter of fact, tonight's dinner was all handmade by Carolle and has a mix of Greek (spanakopita) and west coast (wild sockeye salmon/prawns) to it. I loved my homemade coconut cream birthday pie. It was all so delicious.
After an exquisite dinner we savored the Auchentoshan single malt scotch whisky. And, oohh it's sooo smooth with an agreeable sweetness triple distilled from bourbon oak casks. It's now my favorite.
In fact, we plan to extend the festivities toward the long weekend with even more fun!
Marques de Roja or Mouton Cadet?
