Birthday week is finally OVER!

Can't wait til my birthday week, although being in October, I'll most likely be celebrating it in school with 12 year olds. Happy days.....

But back to the topic at hand. Mr. DEDS requested going to a restaurant in Portland for Brunch. This is a neat little place across from the Post Office that I've been eyeballing for many, many years, but have never been to. 

It has always intrigued me, especially at dusk when the lights are on inside.
It's kinda funky inside... eclectic .....just like we are. 
Here is Mr. Birthday boy, on his actual birthday, toasting with a Bloody Mary, outside on Bintliff's funky deck.
The breakfasts here are quite a feast....and yes.....kinda funky and eclectic, too. Perfect place.
Once back home, we had Birdman's brother and matey over for Sapphiretinis, a beverage inspired by the cruise......Curacoa....coco rum.....banana liquer...and pineapple juice. (it does not turn your mouth blue like sno-cones do)
We had appetizers and dessert. As far as I'm concerned, you never even need a meal when entertaining. Appetizers and dessert and booze. That's my idea of a party.
He wanted blueberry pie for a birthday cake. (I think that WILL turn your mouth blue) and icecream. Ever thrifty, I recycled my son's birthday candles. He's not really 24, or even 42 for that matter. 
And finally some of his gifts. Key elements of his personality: Beer, Birdfeeder, necktie from the Portland Museum of Art, and Needhams

Perfect day to a perfect week. I hope you enjoyed it, sweetie. 

Forever young.

May God bless and keep you always 
May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others 
And let others do for you
May you build a ladder to the stars 
And climb on every rung
May you stay forever young
May you stay forever young.

May you grow up to be righteous 
May you grow up to be true
May you always know the truth 
And see the lights surrounding you
May you always be courageous 
Stand upright and be strong
May you stay forever young
May you stay forever young.

May your hands always be busy 
May your feet always be swift
May you have a strong foundation 
When the winds of changes shift
May your heart always be joyful 
And may your song always be sung
May you stay forever young
May you stay forever young.
