Yesterday was my birthday and as much as I tried to keep it quiet it didn’t work. I tell people I don’t have birthdays any more, I had enough. Well Hank and Eva conjured up a surprise party for me.
The cake actually came from a bakery in Nassau. Hank carried it on the plane without dropping or damaging it a bit. I thought that was really nice of him. Of course he said it would go on my final bill along with the air fare, taxi fare and the KFC chicken he brought along.
Among the gifts were the finest rum out of Cuba, and cigars from the same place and just when I was trying to clean up my a act.
All in all it was a great party with some good friends here.
As it’s cold in much of the USA it is also pretty cold here last couple days. It got down to 50 last night which is really cold for this part of the country. Forecast is for upper 70’s and 80 in the next couple day s.
It has been unseasonably warm in Montana and it looks like the guys will open the shop early and floating, fishing the river. Snowpack in the high country is at or above average.
