Imagine Having a Birthday This Time of Year.........


Well, my husband is one of those lucky individuals!



Today is Ron's birthday.



It is/was usually the day his family waited for
to take down Christmas decorations and 'called it another year'.



Our little Christmas tree will be put away this evening for another year.
But not before celebrating this wonderful man's life.


I am a very fortunate guy to have met this caring and protective fella.


All I know is that I am happy I trusted my instincts back in 1973.


I/we were in the right spot at the right time and we both knew it immediately.


So this is a big THANK YOU Ron for sharing your life with me!


Oh....and a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you!!!


May this year take you up and down many adventurous roads.


And that your infectious enthusiasm for life remains your sole elixir.

  2. Your love and respect for each other and for those around you (and your chronic immaturity) make me smile and are a constant source of inspiration!

    1. Mitch, it has been good for us as well to have 'met' you two and to see that immaturity seems to be a common thread!! I guess we never had a need to grow up.....which is fine by me.
      Thanks.

  10. Happy Birthday, Ronnie! And thank you Jim for this lovely post sharing all the great photos of Ron! You know how to pick 'em, Jim! (But so does Ron!). Wishing you both many more birthdays to enjoy together!

    Terry just got our internet working in our new trailer about two minutes ago (Yay!!!), and my computer is behaving for right now (Double yay!!!). I knew you'd have a special post up for The Birthday Boy, and I didn't want to miss it!

    I'm off to Denver tomorrow to get my hair done and take care of a few other things, so Terry will be on his own for a bit. The old year ended with a flight, and the new year is beginning with a flight ~ My kind of year! Before we know it, I'll be flying to Halifax to see you two ~ definitely the highlight of any year! Happy New Year!
