Happy 60th Birthday to my Hubby!

I would like to wish my dear husband and "Other Half" a very, very Happy Birthday! Today, he turns 60.
Partying is very limited, however, as he is really having to take things slow after his recent surgery to repair a 10-inch incisional hernia where his spleen was removed earlier this year. He got to have the 32 staples (stitches) removed yesterday. WooHoo! We had planned on trying to take a trip during this recovery period but I don't think that may happen. It seems like appointments and schedules keep interfering. Traveling may have to wait until he's sleeping a bit better and not so sore.
I know that these blogs, or at least mine, tend to center around the author's life and viewpoints. But in reality, my husband is always there to lend a hand with the operation of my farming/livestock endeavors. Whether he agrees with what I do or not, he's still there to support me and my dreams - not an easy task in itself as I tend to be very independent and stubborn. (Who, me?) Ralph's the unsung hero here at Oleo Acres.

Here's to you, Hon...may the next 60 years be even better. A very Happy Birthday to you!

Let him be unsung no more...

"Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday dear Ralph,
Happy Birthday to you!"

(Sung in a very off-key but sincere voice...)

I enjoyed this blog Kathy and belated birthday greetings to Grandpa Ralph. He's aging well - tell him. Ian was thrilled that he got carded at MOMA for the senior rate. That's a delightful picture.
