Last week I had, for the first time in decades, a birthday party! Sure, only a half dozen showed up and two of them skipped out after dinner, though it was considered to be a natal anniversary for me. (#65, don't ya know, so I didn't want it to pass in silence.)
I was even given a few prezzies. A care package of cookies and treats including the following:
The top three items are almost finished, I have yet to sample the others. Best present of all was a Piggiless Bank. I'm not sure how Zane knew I'd like it.

After dinner, we went bowling and I am definitely out of practice! The other attendees skipped a trip to the pub, but Zane was kind enough to buy me a beer or two. Two young lads got chatty with him, though once they slithered away, I decided to take my celebration in my own hands and convinced some lassies to take a photo with us.
I grabbed a cake on the way home and sang the tune again, solo this time.
I held off writing about my prezzies until now for yesterday, another friend who was visiting her daughter in Okinawa, gifted me with these:
I am very pleased with this mascot, ルーティ (Rooty) and she brought me an Orion beer
SO, Happy Birthday to me!
My New Years was wholly uneventful by choice. I watched a dorky movie
