Happy Birthday to my friend Paul in the Boston area. If you have a minute please stop by and wish him a happy birthday. Paul has been my friend for most of my 8 plus blogging years. I am sure Arlene is taking him out to a super duper place to celebrate!
It is very easy for me to remember Paul’s birthday as it falls on the date of my wedding anniversary some 50 odd years ago. Seems like only yesterday when Jim and I were young and starting out with absolutely nothing but each other, my old ‘53 pea green Plymouth and Jim’s motorcycle. I will never forget the day. It was snowing so there was no honeymoon, not that we could have afforded one anyway. I hit the jackpot when I married Jim. He was such a caring guy and he was like my dad in that he never met a stranger. I honestly can’t remember one person that didn’t like him. He had a great sense of humor and loved going to country music concerts with me. We saw all of the popular acts. We were even sitting in the Civic Center in Champaign Illinois when Loretta Lynn did her famous passing out act on the stage. If you have ever seen the movie, Coal Miner’s Daughter you will know what I am referring to.
So let’s all celebrate Paul’s birthday and my wedding anniversary. Champagne is on the house! And thanks Jim for being my guardian angel since December 1st, 2006! I have had great need of one this year.
