1ST MAN HAS A BIRTHDAY


Okay, in the interest of full disclosure, this is 2nd Man typing but I had to get 1st Man to help me figure out how to log in and post this.  It's not as easy as I tease him about being so easy, HA.  So it wasn't entirely a surprise to him but I wanted to make sure I let everyone know that today is his birthday because he wouldn't do it himself.  

And it is not just any birthday, but the big FIVE-OH! 

I am thankful for every day we have and I know that our farm, small as it may be, as unfinished or incomplete as it may be, is the ultimate birthday wish for both of us and I'm glad to share the journey.

Happy Birthday to you!!

  1. Many Happies, Ist Man. The 50's club isn't so bad - I can highly recommend it :) Just like whisky, we mature and improve with age lol

    Thanks 2nd Man - for letting us know.

  2. Happy Birthday, 1st Man!! And many more! You're not getting older, just better.
    And remember, it's better to be the Big 5-0 instead of the Big 6 (feet!)-under! :)

    On your Birthday,
    may you be surrounded by
    good feelings, good friends,
    and the knowledge that you're someone
    who makes a difference in this world
    because you do.
    That's why this day
    is so important to so many people
    around you.

    'Remember; you're not 50
    You're 18 with 32 years of experience.'

    Have fun and enjoy your day.

    HAAAAAAAAPPPPY Birthday to you
    HAAAAAAAAPPPPY Birthday to 1st Man...one of the greats who enjoys life to the fullest and is always finding interesting stuff to add to Seda Bolsa and is always paying compliments and paying it forward and is truly interested in a bunch of different stuff and always tries to make people feel good...
    HAAAAAAAAPPPPY Birthday to you!

    much love being sent your way on the big 5-0. i think Colleen above said it best!

  13. Happy birthday 1st Man. Wishing you a wonderful 50th, and remember, it's just a number like any other number. It's how you feel inside that counts. Bet you never thought you'd one day be half a century old!! Don't think about it too much, it messes with your head!

    1. On the inside I really feel maybe 30? I do try to keep it out of my head, if it sounds old I feel like it might make me old, ha. I'm sticking with 30 something. :-)

  25. A milestone indeed! Welcome to the club. Happy Birthday and enjoy another year of farming and fun. Thanks for all of the inspirational posts. Personally, I think 50 is the new 30, or at least that's how I'm dealing with the whole business.

  30. On my goodness, Happy Birthday! Funny how changing the front numbers seems more monumental than changing the second ones. You know what they say though, age is all a matter of mind, if you don't mind, it doesn't matter. :)
