I thought it was going to be a low-key birthday weekend of quiet, rest, and solitude with me, Jeffrey and the dogs.
Much to my pleasant surprise, this guy came to celebrate my birthday with us:
I haven’t seen him since early March and have missed him horribly. These guys (along with many others) have made my birthday incredible, even in isolation:
I love these guys with all my heart, and they gave me a birthday to remember!
We did puzzles:
We did Mad Libs:
We ate (Gluten Free) donuts:
We played Skip-Bo:
I got balloons delivered by my Mom and Sister and a “Happy Birthday” serenade from the car:
I got cards from fabulous friends (thanks AM and Java!)
There were gifts and decorations:
We watched Gerald perform:
We had cocktails:
My dogs were an essential part of the weekend as well (of course):
Texts, emails, phone calls, and FaceTimes from so many people made my heart swell. If I didn’t know better, I’d thing I was dying.
Such an incredible weekend. And that it was all a total surprise made it 300% better.
Just goes to show that the right people can make even a lockdown birthday feel like a fabulous celebration – never underestimate the people you love (and who love you back!)
I’m feeling the love, folks.
Happy Birthday to me.

I see my card! and what a surprise to see jim! happy birthday, dear friend sassybear! PS – those donuts look awesome!,
Thank you. They were!
Belated but ever-so-sincere best wishes for your big day, S/b. [I’ve been terribly remiss on b’day greetings this year, having inadvertently buried my list of important dates, so you’re by no means alone]. Good to see that you weren’t ignored by those who matter a great deal to you, including ‘old’ faithful friend[s]. Hope you received some long doggie licks in appreciation of being such a nice daddy to those li’l uns who couldn’t look sweeter if they tried. Very best wishes to you.
Thanks, Raybeard. It was a great day, indeed, full of more affection than I deserve.
Looks like a great celebration. Happy birthday!
It was! Thanks.
I’m thrilled that you had such a wonderful birthday!
Thanks. May be one of the best birthdays ever.
Feliz compleanos aka happy birthday.

Hey you’re welcome.
So sorry, I did not realize it was your birthday. Looks like it was a GREAT one considering all that is going on. Hopefully you can celebrate all year long and keep smiling with surprises along the way!! Wishing you ALL the BEST xoxoxoxo
Don’t apologize, silly. No reason for you or anyone to remember it. Thanks so much, Glen.
I’m sorry I missed wishing you a happy birthday. I’m glad to see you had a great time.
You always do birthdays right! May this next year be one of your best!
