Happy Birthday to me

birthday breakfast

“What would you like for your birthday breakfast?” Maria asked this morning.

I thought for a moment and then my mind focused.

“Corned beef hash and eggs,” I said, “but I don’t think we have any hash.”

“I’ll bet they have some at Dollar General down the road,” she offered.

She was right. We needed a gallon of milk anyway, so I donned my Firstgear MeshTex motorcycle jacket, fired up the K75S and savored the sunny 79 degree weather the two miles down U.S. 49 to the Dollar General where I found lots of Hormel Corned Beef & Hash.

A half-hour later, I was sitting down to this repast, complete with cowboy china and a mocha cappuccino.

My 68th birthday is off to a splendid start.
