    My wife had a significant birthday just the other week, so I had to put up with that. I just said that, at her age, they’re all significant 🤣 Fortunately the shed has a power connection!

    That’s exactly how I felt a couple of days ago on my birthday! Nobody gave me earings like that – If they had I’d have gone fishing with them!

    Here’s mine!

    I am not really bothered by birthdays. I will take every year I can get. Some aren’t so fortunate.
