A nice coincidence for someone who loves photography!  I also have 4 friends who have birthdays on this day, as well as Pres Bill Clinton and Orville Wright! Pres Bill Clinton is 1 year older than I am, and the Orville Wright passed away in January the year I was born! Interesting since, I have around 440 hours with my private pilot’s license! Not sure what Pres Bill Clinton and I have in common besides our birth dates!

My darling wife, Alice took me to Jitter’s Coffee Shop in Millersburg, Ohio. I had a great 20’s Reuben sandwich! Delicious!

Ingredients: Rye Bread, Corned Beef, Sauerkraut, Mayonnaise, and Swiss Cheese!

The coolies in the market call me, “Luchi!”  I saw this graffiti, and thought it would be fitting for my birthday post. Not sure what happened to my forward post, but it never showed!


Yes there was a birthday cake!  Actually, it was given to me by the Mrs. Yoder’s Kitchen Restaurant in Mt. Hope, Ohio because I ate breakfast there on my birthday.  The candle is an amazing Flower whose petals open with candles on each petal.  It also plays a nice tune.

It is nice to share my birthday with “World Photography Day!  I’ll post this today since in Bangladesh it is already on the 19th, and I haven’t told WordPress that I am in the U.S.!!

Here I am enjoying a pretzel at the train station in Bern, Switzerland!

Also proud to be wearing the TTL polo shirt from our 5th “Bangladesh in Frames” photo exhibition!   https://marlandphotos.com/2013/04/26/exciting-response-at-seeing-my-photo-at-the-exhibition/
