Today is Dec's 23rd birthday.
It's the first time in a long time that we have been able to celebrate it together.
The gerbera which I bought for June's Memorial Day
sprouted another flower in honour of Dec's Birthday !
Bit of a wander about the garden with the camera ....
The mango tree seems to be healthy enough.
Pineapples, Paw Paw tree, etc.
I got June's exercise bike from the warehouse last week
and cleaned it up; it's perfect for what I want it to do.
Dec thoughtfully bought us a house-warming gift from Dublin.
Sam's lucky cat from Kyoto is hopefully beaming in the Powerball Numbers.
I prepared a birthday feast for Dec, albeit on such short notice.
Above: Kangaroo sausages
Below: Chipolatas marinating in soy and garlic.
The new rice cooker.
The Buck Knife which I purchased in San Francisco in Dec., 1979
but never used was being cleaned for its very first cake-cutting duty.
From hereonin the Buck Knife is the Official Birthday Knife.
Sam went and got a choco cheese cake ... .super-high calories.
Dec cutting his cake !
