  2. Yep, it was pretty easy. So, were you well celebrated yesterday?

  3. Yes, it was a wonderful birthday.

    However, any of you that have a birthday next to a holiday (in my case, Father's Day) there is a tendency to get the "combined" gifts.

  4. Does that mean that you are still waiting for the combined gift or did you get your Father's Day gift early?

  5. And by combined gift, do you mean you got a Breitling Blackbird watch AND your own single engine airplane?

  6. Nate,
    Unfortunately I made it through yet another Birthday without the manifestation of the Breitling Blackbird.

    By combined gift, I mean you get the birthday gift, and they say, "here is your birthday and Father's day gift".

    So, I fear my gifts were received yesterday, and I will see no additional gifts tomorrow.

    Perhaps next year I will get the Blackbird.

  7. Good job ENM
    Yes it was easy.
    I know what you mean by combined gifts. My birthday is on the 30th, And I have already received my combined gift of a new Garmin.
    After over more than a 4000 mile trip, my wife decided I needed a new one. The old one (about 8 or 9 years old) even though I updated it, was have to "recalculate" to often.
    It seems that if a highway is only a year or so old they have problems.

    Those were almost the exact words my wife used when she gave me my gift. She did added happy birthday with it. And I will get to do the grilling on both days

  11. PJM,

    Having worked at both Sagamore Hill and the Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural Site in Buffalo, I recognized Edith Kermit Carow Roosevelt like I would a picture of my own mother.

    I could beat the pants of Nate any day. My problem is, being in Pennsylvania, I'm up before you, but sometime while I'm drinking my coffee on Saturday, you post, and Nate beats me to it.

    What time to do you usually put the picture up, Texas time?

    PS - Happy Birthday! June's a good month to be born in. I should know.
