Thanks to all for the kind words and wishes.

I really lucked out yesterday as Chicagoland had it's last of the sunny, low 70's days, we've enjoyed for the last 4 or 5 days.

Two of my stepdaughters came by in the morning, with the non-school age grandkids, to help me enjoy the birthday cake, that my beautiful wife made a 6am trip to our favorite bakery in the city, to pick up.

Your "birthday weather" yesterday was just awesome, Mike! 

 

Thanks for sharing it with us! It was even better than cake and ice cream ... LOL 

 

Good to see your birthday was fantastic.
