Birthday Gift Bag

My Mother gave my son a birthday gift bag. He had fun looking at everything, very much like my mother likes to do when she receives a bag full of gifts! Our grandson looks on.

20,000 Days since Alice and I met back on September 18, 1966. Our lives haven’t been the same since!! First day of Summer, and National Selfie Day are eclipsed by our special day! We’ve lived in Virginia, Pennsylvania, Iowa, and Ohio. We also lived in Northwestern Ontario and Dhaka, Bangladesh! I have worked in 4 different hospitals as a Medical Technologist. Alice worked in three hospitals as an LPN. I was also Principal at four different schools. I piloted little two-seater planes in NW Ontario for 440 hours. We have two sons, a daughter-in-law, and three grandsons. We have hiked in the Southern Rockies, as well as the mountains of the Banff, Jasper, Waterton and Glacier National Parks. We have hiked the Grand Canyon three times, the foothills of the Swiss Alps, and the Himalayas. We’ve hike in the Smokies, and a volcano in Bali. We have slept under the stars at the Upper Chukuni near Red Lake, and on the sandy desert of Western India near Jaisalmer. We were both saved from drowning, and Alice is a Cancer Survivor!! God has been good!!! As the plaque says on our porch, “Welcome to our Porch, where we enjoy the lazy days of summer!” If you want to hear more of our story, we could oblige you. Maybe even a cup of coffee, or ice tea! If you from another state or country, we have spare bedrooms also! P.S. We got married 1,000 days after we met!

My wife at one of her favorite places for her daily morning walk, the entrance to the “Rails to Trails” trail in Millersburg.

She loves it when on her daily morning walk she sees deer!

Her other favorite place for her daily morning walk is Oak Hill Cemetery near our house. And as you see, she also at times sees deer!

Happy Easter

Birthday Party

The plates had belonged to my wife’s mother! This was a birthday party, we had last week, for our daughter-in-law, Marita.

My daughter-in-law did a great job of preparing this tasty dish. It was for our youngest grandson’s 16th birthday celebration!!

A fusion of Elk meat chunks and a classic North Indian mild curry made with yogurt, tomato paste, ginger, garlic and traditional Indian spices.

It’s December!

In fact this the second day of December, 201″Pebbles” product ornaments. My son imports these from Bangladesh for his company, Kahiniwalla. They are “cute as a button.”

My mother always marked a circle in the center of the cake before cutting the cake, so the pieces wouldn’t have a point on the end! Her she is with her 96th birthday cake!

Time to blow out the candles with her Great Grandson, whose birthday we were also celebrating.

Birthday Celebration

My Mother and Grandson having fun celebrating their birthdays! 96 & 20

I was planning to post a fantastic post yesterday!! Didn’t happen! Maybe too busy with Birthday celebration! 🙂 Yesterday was my 71st birthday, as well as World Photography Day. Interestingly enough, World Photography Day started 9 years before I was born! For those who care, I will describe the cake! First a layer of chocolate brownie, holes punched in it and raspberry jello poured over the brownie cake. Then a layer of thickened red raspberries, and white chocolate pudding with whipped topping for icing. It was quite tasty. I guess they thought I might not be able to blow out 71 candles with one blow! Have a great day, as I am starting my 72nd year.

My cousin’s son had a surprise birthday party!
