It's Birthday Time !

Today is a special day for my best friend, partner, and love. Folks know him as Grenville here on our blog; his actual name is Patrick. He's happy that this birthday frees him from paying for a fishing license in NH where we now live.

Grenville doesn't think of himself as getting old(er). That's a good great thing because he's still having way too much fun — can't you tell? 

And, always has time to spend with friends.
As a former boat owner, he enjoys getting behind the wheel, and being outdoors, especially here in New England.


Spending time with with family and together is very important (to both of us).
A sign in our home: We're adults, when did that happen and HOW can we make it stop?  
Speaking for ourselves, we have no plans to grow-up anytime soon. After all, what's the advantage? Besides that we're still having too much fun.

As to how he's spending today, we're attending a CPR training course. Yes, I know, it's not a fun way to spend a birthday, but the course was already scheduled when we registered. 
The weekend gets better on Saturday afternoon and evening. It's my treat to an ice cream sundae from our favorite local place. and dining out at a local restaurant. Sunday will include a road trip to an event for his newest interest, ham radio.

I love this post. It is so full of life and happiness. Happy Birthday Grenville.(That always reminds me of the British sitcom, "Open all Hours" with Ronnie Barker and David Jason, who was Grenville in the show.)
