Getting Close

Friday was my birthday. Robb took me, Wendy and Steve to the HiLife Cafe to celebrate. Actually, I guess it was more to commemorate than celebrate because no one celebrates being this old. We had a bottle of champagne and a good meal. Robb, Steve and I had a roasted pork dish which was very good. Wendy had a goat cheese salad. The goat cheese was lightly battered and fried. It was so good. I was the last to finish. I don't really mind getting older, and if it wasn't for the COPD, I would probably be in excellent condition. At least, that's how I feel. It's difficult to think of myself as old, except when I look at the skin on my arms. Yuck!

Get ready to walk! All dates 2011 gay pride events.  We will be there for the parade in Paris on the 25th.

Happy Birthday! Safe travels to Paris (and perhaps, beyond?)

I'll be watching for your posts.

Very interesting post. You had me grinning the whole way through...especially with that last pic...Sheesh!

I dunno about growing old. I don't like it at all! Not a bit! No way! It's freaking miserable. Until you remember the alternative.

But I'm working out with weights, exercising, walking, biking, playing golf, etc., and I do feel better...and at today's golf match I beat a guy 12 years my junior! That was fun!

Are you going back to Paris this month, you lucky dog!
