Forty years ago today, on March 23, 1968 at 15:15 Central Time at Stormont Vail Hospital in Topeka, Kansas, I came into the world.
And the world's never been the same since.
Actually, I'm surprised I made it this far. I never expected to see 30, much less 40. But, every day I get out of bed, and say, "OK, I'm still alive," and keep going. Seems to be working!
For my birthday, the Captain took me to the Chuckanut Manor Bed & Breakfast out on Chuckanut Drive, over in Skagit County last weekend. It was wonderful. We sat on the balcony and looked out over the water (which you can see in the photo), ate yummy food, drank and smoked a lot, and had a blast in the Jacuzzi hot tub. It was *the best* birthday I ever had, bar none, and I have the Captain to thank for it.
He took the photo at right of me at the B&B, holding the pink umbrella he gave me for Valentine's Day.
For lunch today, he took me to my favourite Asian buffet. Yum!
What a great birthday!
