From 0 to 60 in Under 6 Flushes

Birthdays; those once a year days we celebrate our coming into the world. Birthdays are good for you, the more you have the longer you live! By the time you get to sixty, there's more candles than cake. But, old age isn't so bad when you consider the alternative.

On Friday, August 6th, my daughters and I decided on an all girls bright. We converged on Boucher Imports of Racine, to bestow 60th birthday wishes, hugs and kisses on our favorite guy; daddy to them, hubby to me. 

Arriving like a triple troika, we were the cat's meow and looking like the next up; four of us all in a row with balloons in tow, and a birthday bag of goodies. 
After the big "Surprise!", I took a place beside my old fiddle and listened to the sweet tune of excitement coming from our tootsie trio, young and beautiful. 

For a moment a memory harmonized with three little girls in curls, and pink birthday cakes. I blinked off the nostalgia and resisted a sudden urge to sing Achey Breaky Parts to my other half.

We wished the birthday boy a hearty congratulations on reaching the big 60 and told him  to keep a positive attitude. After all he's only sixteen in Celsius. He should be thankful he's still playing with a full deck. He just shuffles a little slower now.

I told him there's still fire in the furnace, but now it's called heartburn. Then, I gave him this little birthday gift fit for a sporty man of 60 who thinks getting lucky is finding his car in the parking lot. 

He won't have any trouble finding this little baby! A brand new 2010 Flusher from Latrine Imports. Manufactured by Willy Makeit and Betty Won't. This little number goes from 0 to 60 in under 6 flushes and is guaranteed to keep him on the go.

Happy Sixty Ricky!! 

Grow old along with me the best is yet to be...
