We Help Nigel Bring in the Big Six-Oh

Yesterday we helped Nigel celebrate his 60th birthday. A lively party got underway about 4:00 PM, graciously hosted by Jim at his bay-front home.

I'm sixty years of age. That's 16 Celsius.

Everyone more or less gravitated to the pool-side patio to enjoy the still air. No breeze at all, to speak of.

Following the party instructions, everyone brought their fav "hootch", so with that and plenty of chips and dip, things moved right along.

I've a whole slew of photos of the event here and rather than try to caption each, I'll just let you peruse at your leisure.

Ok, so I put captions on the photos anyway. That way, you'll have an idea who you're dealing with.

After the mozzies (as the Brits call mosquitos) came out, and came out in force, we all retreated inside to the kitchen, where the serious damage began to occur to all the food folks had brought.

It was a fun evening. So much so, that everyone had to drive home in the dark - something we normally try, at all costs, to avoid.

So, anyway... Happy 60th Nigel. We're looking forward to helping you celebrate many more!
