Here we go…!

Some of you may recall that Weasel Birthday is in early May. This one is my 60th, and I’ve pondered all year what I should do for such a landmark birthday. Party? Dinner? Tattoo?

And then a voice came out of the sky and it said “Nothing! Thou shalt do nothing on this very special birthday.”

So that’s it, then. I didn’t want a tattoo anyway. I’ve got whatever loot Uncle B managed to get through the blockade, some nice food and a case of beer ready for the fridge.

That’s right. I think I might experiment with the exciting world of daytime drinking.

If the weather is nice this week — and it’s supposed to be — I shall sit in the sun, play the banjo, drink beer and burble to my chickens.

If it isn’t nice, I shall sit inside, play video games, drink beer and burble to Uncle B.

I’m not saying I won’t post, but just in case I’m indisposed at my usual posting time, I have queued up 5 fancy numerals, one for each day of the week, to launch at 9pm WBT. There may also be words, but I’m not promising.

You may do whatever you like in the comments, I’ll be busy burbling.

Happy Birthday, Weas! You could always try mehndi(henna tattoo). I like it because you can feel all rebellious and stuff but it fades in two weeks. There are kits and things online.

Happy Birthday Weasel! Hubby is celebrating his 60th in a few months by retiring. That’s my recommendation….retire!

Share some beer with the chickens. Tipsy chickens are so funny, you may want to be sitting somewhere you can’t fall off of though.

Feliz Cumpleaños !!!!

Take advantage of Taco Tuesday which is also Cinco de Mayo (or in the case of a former over-hyped but dull President of the United States: “Cinco de Cuatro”)!

Tequila and Margarita mix… that’s what I do, frozen.

Salud !!!!

the exciting world of daytime drinking.

The trick is to start early.

If you want a nice and simple self-deluding way to ease into daytime drinking, simply have a beer with lunch. Then, a little while later, you can easily tell yourself, “Well, I’ve already had one so I may as well open another.” Easy-peasy!

But watch out. You probably don’t want to start first thing in the morning with a boilermaker instead of brushing your teeth. But I suppose you could brush your teeth with crème de menthe…

Daytime drinking is a fine old tradition.

Ken Shales, the grand old man of British homebrewing, said that his favorite breakfast was steak and a pint of his Double Daphne ale.

H A P P Y _ B I R T H D A Y, Weasel!!!!

What could be special on a special birthday?


Colonoscopy, perhaps?

Anyhoo — welcome to the 60 and over club! Dinner is at 3pm, bedtime is 8pm.

Happy birthday! I’m just 7 months younger than you, so my Big One is coming up on Veteran’s Day.

I don’t do day drinking per se. But I will almost always have a Manhattan or two when charring up some meat on the grill. And if it so happens that I’m using the grill earlier in the day … oh well; one must adhere to traditions.

There sure are a lot of May birthdays in my physical and digital circle! Mrs. Uncle was 66 on Sunday, I’ll be 71 this Saturday, and my sister will be 76 on the 31st. Plus my favorite mustelid here! Then there are five (?) friends and in-laws I won’t enumerate.

Conceptually, August must have been a very good month.

Is the sun over the yardarm?
Queen’s birthday?
Five o’clock, somewhere?

Since Mrs D shares your month, year and birthweek i’ll tell what she asked for.

Mrs D is getting a compound miter saw, 3 blades type dependant on material, possibly the girly caliber Stihl battery powered chainsaw, and very possibly a retired husband, though I’m thinking after the chores she’s assigning I should NOT retire.

I married the woman for her beauty, her practicality, and because she’d marry a bozo like me.

I hope uncle B is more romantical than I am and doesn’t buy you a chainsaw for your 60th birthday, even if you ask for one.

The sun is going down somewhere.
Happy Birthday (the whole month long), Stoaty. Doing nothing is a perfect plan.

If you’re going to drink all day, you’ve got to start first thing! Happy Birthday week, Stoaty.
