Thank you Michael and Rob!!! Birthdays last as long as the time spent celebrating them!
I did indeed have an excellent day! Beerman and I spent most of the afternoon playing with our assorted stringed instruments (Spanish guitar, bass guitar, mandolin and ukelele). Well, let's say 'learning' how to play them. So far, we having tuning down to an art form and know a bit of Ode to Joy. This learning curve is a steep one currently.
