OK, so where did that year go to???

Time sure seems to slip by as you get a bit older, and yes, I guess I am a bit older today, being my Birthday, but I am sure that I am a lot wiser! Sixty two years ago, I am sure there was a big party somewhere in Montreal, where I was born!

I did get out and do some work today on my birthday, finishing off the floors on the reno job!

This is the new mud room...

That is Balzac above, checking out the new flooring... don't know what he thought about the floor, he was looking at it kind of funny. The other night he was out on the prowl, and found himself a skunk, that sprayed him right in the face! Ouch! Chris and Kristina have been giving him numerous washings to get rid of the smell. This job turned out pretty good overall, and now it is a matter of putting up some new trim in the room.

Kristina did a great job of putting my favourite dinner of all time on for us tonight, macaroni and cheese...home made, with a big old lemon meringue pie with a couple candles on it! We all had a feast!

Right after dinner, we were able to catch up with Shawn, Jenn, and Emmie and Paige, who had just returned from a soccer game in Tennessee. I took a pic of the Skype Screen above... they were very excited, telling us all the things they have been up to in Johnson City.

Judy took some pics of my birthday party tonight, but alas... the camera is still in at Kristina's house... so no pictures of the birthday boy tonight.

Till tomorrow...


  1. Hey, Happy Birthday, sounds like a pretty good day to me.

  2. Happy, Happy Birthday John!!

    May you and Judy have the best year yet!!

    Take care ... TnT

  3. Happy Birthday - the best is yet to come.

  4. Happy Birthday, John. The dinner Katrina made for you sounded perfect - one of my favs too!

    You are getting older but I'm going to have to think a bit about "a lot wiser" as you still seem to be doing an awful lot of reno work!

  5. Happy birthday John. But what's this I read! You were working on your birthday? Well, being retired permits you to do whatever you please...., even on your special day.

    The mud room looks great. Nice work.

  6. Happy Birthday, time is moving so fast.
