I’m 41 years old now. Wow! And yet I feel so young and spry.

(No I don’t.)

Jeff spoiled me with two stunning gifts – a Jim Robb print of his watercolour of the Kissing Buildings over on 3rd Ave!

Look at these earrings! They were made locally, with little locally mined gold nuggets!! I don’t think this picture does them justice, they are stunning!

Jeff made me a birthday cake. Wow is that icing sweet. Mmmmm.

Tonight we went to the Drunk Goat for my birthday dinner. Or should I say feast. In Dawson City every bar will give you a free drink on your birthday. I went for the sangria!

We got the big mixed Greek platter. WOW. So good. Flame grilled chicken breast, lamb chops, ribs, shrimp, and rice.

With a big Greek salad. Dad, you said you didn’t care for Greek food, but I bet you’d help gobble this up if you were here. Mom, I skipped every olive. Olives just aren’t my thing.

No, we did not finish it all. In fact, I tried to wash it down with a second sangria, but we were still so stuffed we had to abandon dreams of collecting all my free drinks at all the bars, and came home to moan on the couch. Then had cake. Tomorrow we’ll eat more left overs 😉

Thanks everyone for your calls, messages, and Facebook love. Cheers!
