"The Birthday Boy....."

Thursday night after coming home from Don's "Birthday Dinner" (he chose to go to Jimmy Buffett's Cheeseburger in Paradise), I persuaded him to open "just one birthday present". Can you tell he enjoys cognac? :) I thought perhaps he'd want to take it for a "taste sip", but the margaritas at dinner had been enough for the day........

The next day, BEFORE breakfast (although I had a hard time waiting for him to be "ready"....ugh!), I finally got him to sit and open his presents! To celebrate "recumbentcy" (a made up word to be sure), he got T-shirts from the recumbent shop in Stevens Point, The Hostel Shoppe. We are, by the way, going to participate in their annual recumbent rally in August.

OH MY! Another present celebrating "recumbentcy"! :) This is a cover for his fairing, this years new addition to his bike.

And yes, another bottle of cognac.......

His next to last present was a "cover", which was for his last present, the propane patio heater, which in our case, becomes a deck heater. :) Photos of that "construction" process, will be in tomorrows blog entry. :)
