Tuesday Birthday

June 16, 1949. Mr. Scottie Dog was born. He was a cutie with lots and lots of black hair that fell out when he was about a month old. Then his hair grew in blond. 60 years ago. I met him when I was 18 and he was an "old man" of 21. One week later we were engaged.

Tonight I had a class which ended at 9 pm and I got the store closed up about 9:20 pm. Back at home I started making Baklava for the birthday. One pan for Mr. Dog and his Accordion Club and one pan for my Tuesday Morning Quilting class. It's 11:02 right now and it will be done in about 30 minutes.

Happy Birthday Mr. Scottie Dog, I love you even more at 60 than I did when you were 21!

Happy Birthday to Mr. Scottie Dog and congratulations to you both for your long and obviously happy marriage.
My courtship and marriage followed a similar path. (Humboldt State saw a lot of young marriages at that time). Aug will be our 43rd anniversary and our 63rd birthdays. Such marriages are a rarity today.

Happy birthday Mr. Scottie Dog! :)

The picture you asked about on my blog was actually taken at a ranching museum. That particular room used to be the "dining hall" of a large Texas ranch.
