It's his bird day

Monday is a lousy day to have a bird day so we celebrated yesterday with friends. I tried a new cocktail with gin and Hypnotic which very bizarrely comes out tasting like a margarita. Since it's blue we garnished with blueberries.

This is one of those scent cards you can hang from your rear view mirror. It was on Dan's fridge.
I thought it was rather amusing.

We had onion soup and then this appetizer of scallops, mandarin and tarragon. Quite tasty.

Dan thought it was funny to take a picture of me with glass antlers. That's about as fake a smile you could see.

Though we were already full, we had lamb, mashed potatoes and root vegetables.

Ida was there and we noticed that we had a similar dinner ten years ago together. I like the idea of long time friends getting together. We laugh and laugh and carry on.

Definitely worthy of Cakewrecks don't you think? We joked that it said "Happy Brother Serge" The baker had a little trouble with the birthday word.

He's so dainty. Happy forty second birthday baby!

Hooray for avoiding the dirt nap another year, Serge! I know Serge knows just how handsome he still is. Torn does look horny. Oh yes, the antlers were very funny also. ed

Hope Serge had the best birthday ever.

Sad that I don't remember my 42nd.

I do ignore it, so that might be the reason.

Serge's smile is just lovely.

And I adore the antler picture.

Happy Birthday to Serge. Another Sagitarius huh?

I got one coming up in a week. Luckily it doesn't fall on Thanksgiving this year. Mine will mark 44 years. Uggh.

I note that you did the responsible thing and just got the number candles. Putting 40 or more candles on a cake is definitely a fire hazard.
