    Well, happy birthday! I have that same vintage stag mini copperhead. It's a nice pattern and enjoyable to use.

    Thanks, John! The best gift was the time spent with family, but I agree!

    Thanks, r8shell

    Thanks, Tom!

    Pandemically speaking it was John.

    My mom used to call me on my birthday and sing Happy Birthday to me. Thanks for making me think of that, although I'm sure her sweet voice was much better than yours!:D

    Thanks, Alan. I hope I can say the same for a long time!

    Thanks, Will! It was an official "don't pick on hubby, dad, grandad" day. Of course we returned to reality the next day!;)

    Bourbon and water to end the evening!
    Our Italian toast is "Cent'Anni", meant to imply "May you live 100 years".

    Thanks, Jack! It was a grand day! Seeing the grandkids in their element is really a treat.

    Thanks, Charlie! I'm lucky that most of my children have stayed in the Syracuse area. We've all been doing the responsible thing in light of the pandemic, so it was time to let the guard down a bit.

    Thanks, Dan. I hear you. I was a bit reckless when I was young. I'm glad I grew out of it!

    Thanks, Ace! It's a well made little knife, and I'll enjoy carrying and using it. The best part is it's a gift from my son.

    Happy belated birthday, Gary! Sounds like you had a good one! :thumbsup: (Also, we share the same birthday! I’m only halfway to 70, though. :D)

    Happy belated birthday Gary I'm not far behind you either. I'm glad you got to spend time with your family I'm sure that meant much more to you than the presents. This virus have sure changed our lives, my granddaughter is a hair dresser and is going to cut my hair tomorrow it's the first time it's been cut since this started I look like a Qtip. :D But the important thing about this haircut is I get to see my great grandson he'll be 2 years old next month and I've only saw him once since March.

    Thanks, Christian.

    Thanks, Randy! I got my first haircut last Friday. Boy, it felt good! I was looking like my late 1960s self, except old and grey!:eek:

    I hope you have a great visit with your grandson! Our granddaughter's 1st birthday is today. We celebrated her birthday with mine last Sunday.

    Thank you, James! It really is all about family "alla famiglia". I've been called many things and blessing is one of the nicest! Thank you, you're a blessing yourself, and so is this porch family of ours.

    When I turned 70, I discovered 70 doesn't sound old until you say it out loud.

    A belated Happy Birthday.

    Thanks.
    I always say getting old beats the heck out of the alternative.
    You know, it does sound worse when you say it out loud.:eek:

    Time is definitely real, but it’s relative...

    Also, youth is fleeting, but immaturity can last a lifetime
