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!!

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.

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! :)

Happy Birthday 1st man! (Nice job 2nd man!) I have been on the dark side of 50 for 5 years now and it is grand indeed!! Love being over 50 and having a blast being back at school with all these cute 20 year olds...who only see me as their mum or grandmum..still life after 50 is fabulous!

Happy Birthday
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.

okay 1st Man...you know the drill. tell 2nd Man to don his best falsetto voice (and to think of Minne Mouse) and sing this to you:

HAAAAAAAAPPPPY Birthday to you
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!

from your friends,
kymber and jam

A very happy 50th! So glad that 2nd man let us know so we could send our birthday greetings. Whatcha doing to celebrate? Big party under the party tree? New gadget? A trip to the thrift store? A special cake?

Linda said...

Happy Birthday! Have a great day on this very special mile stone birthday!

FionaG said...

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!

Joani said...

Awesome. Another stepping stone accomplished. Happy Happy!

Elephant's Child said...

Happy, happy birthday! May this new year bring you joy and happiness always!

Mike Yukon said...

Well Happy Birthday to both of you! Sorry I missed 2nd mans that was a couple days ago :-(
Remember your brain says you are 18 but the minute you start to split firewood your body will quickly remind you you're not! :-)

Happy B Day!!! Oh ya that 50 sneaks up on you doesn't it.. Caught me just this last January too ROFL, its kinda hard to believe isn't it... But I have decided that we need to approach this age thing like wine... we just get better with age! :O) Hope you had a great B Day

Galestorm said...

Happy Birthday! 50 is good! Time goes by fast....we used to call it over the hill! LOL! Since I have seen 50, I will just say the best is yet to come!

Janie Junebug said...

Happy Birthday! Fifty is still young-ish.

Tonya @ My Cozy Little Farmhouse said...

Love the card. Happy of happiest birthdays!

Janice said...

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.

Akannie said...

Happy birthday, 1st Man! It's a day late because I read the emails rather than the website, lol, but hope you had a fantastic day! I'm sure 2nd man treated you to an evening to remember!

Leigh said...

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. :)

Midnite Baker said...

Happy Birthday, 1st Man!! And many more.

1st Man said...

I actually feel younger that my biological age, I don't 'feel' 50 if that makes sense. Thanks!!!

1st Man said...

Definitely a milestone but doesn't seem real for some reason, I just don't feel 50. Thank you for the kind words!!

1st Man said...

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. :-)

1st Man said...

Amen!! Thank you!!!! Big hugs!!

1st Man said...

Thank you thank you!!! And yes, you already saw how yummy it was, ha.

1st Man said...

You are awesome! Thanks for that. Alas no tractor or plow but maybe a couple new toys. More on that later. :-)

1st Man said...

Thanks so much, you are very sweet with the wishes!!!

1st Man said...

LOL! Great comment, and amen. Yep, yesterday when I was holding that dang edger for an hour, I really felt every moment of 50, ha.

You are very kind, thank you sir!! Much appreciated!!

1st Man said...

I like that, i was just saying above, if i had to say what I 'feel' it's 30. Wonderful!! Thank you again!!!

1st Man said...

Very sweet, thanks! :-)

1st Man said...

I really can't wrap my head around because i don't feel it (most of the time, ha). Hey, we love wine, I totally understand. :-)

Thanks again!

1st Man said...

Thanks, I truly feel like the best is yet to come. :-)

Many thanks!!!

Young-ish, great way to think about it. I can't say it's young but all things considered, it IS young-ISH huh? thanks for the wishes!!!
