Wordless Wednesday - And I am 70

My sons David and Luke treated me to lunch at the White River Fish Market.  March 1 is my birthday.  When I was 58 I suffered stage 3 colon cancer and was given about 2 years.  I wondered if I would make 60. Now I am 70 and doing pretty darned good thank you.  Over the past 12 years I have met and married a fine sweet lady and to the best of my ability have made the most out of my life.  Every day is a gift.

We told our server that this was a birthday lunch and she treated me to a lovely slice of cherry cheesecake which we shared. It's all good.

You truly don't look (and sound!) your age! What doesn't kill you make you stronger, you are a fighter!

Joyeux anniversaire!

DUDE! Many happy returns and (of course) many more. I thank you for all your sweet, lovely and witty comments and for being a kind internet chum to my mum.

I wish you continued good health and applaud you for spreading such good mojo around the blogosphere.

Cheers!

Happy Birthday Bill - you don't look a day over 69! What a handsome trio you make.

Congratulations with the great day!!!. Beating that 12 cancer twelve years ago gives one en extra reason for celebration. I know the feeling, since I had a heart transplant seven years ago and am still "going strong" :-)

And my best birthday wishes, too, even if they are late. What a happy table, and much to celebrate indeed.
