Lordy, Lordy!

A special birthday deserved a very special cake, so I made a trek to Suncook, NH and Jacques Pastries for this fabulous creation. Not only did it look good, but the lemon cake with vanilla buttercream frosting was delicious! If you have an occasion needing a special cake, it's worth the drive (check out their other designs - unbelievable!).

After a cold midday bike ride, it was time to celebrate with our close friends, and of course, lots of food. Instead of cooking, I called Lester's BBQ - one of NEBC's new sponsors. Lester's didn't disappoint, bringing delicious BBQ ribs, wings, brisket and chopped beef, potato salad, coleslaw, mashed potatoes with gravy, baked beans, pickles, cornbread, vegetarian wraps and a bbq chicken meal. Everyone loved the food (and I loved not having to cook or set up - thanks Andria), and we will be eating leftovers for the next two or three days!

We had a great day - a definite kickoff to the fabulous forties!

Holy Feeding Frenzy Batman!
That cake is slick!
Lester's sounds like heaven on earth.
I'm hungry now. :-(

Happy Birthday Mike. Here's to another 40 wonderful years, plus some!

Forty? I can barely remember that far back. Of course, it might help if I could remember how old I am now ;)

My bro' was kind enough to point out that at age 41 + 8 months you hit the 500-month milestone! I've congratulated a few friends on that one, but missed my own back in January.

You'll have to keep track of that date for Mike (and eventually, yourself, too!) Hope it was a great bday celeb.
