    I maintain 2 birthdays -- my birth certificate one, and also one on January 1, just past. My RJ profile reflects the latter. I do this to make calculating my age easier, counting from 1949. Plus what's a few months when you get this old?

    Queen Elizabeth II does a similar thing, more a concern for the official celebration coinciding with nicer weather. I figure what's good enough for the Queen of England is good enough for the queen of Wilton Manors. icon_wink.gif

    No, you hateful person. I'm mocking myself for a laugh, that I do here all the time. Something you probably couldn't do about yourself in a million years. And no doubt why you're not capable of understanding it.

    Thanks my dear! Now is that new profile pic from 12th Night last night? I don't know a lot of places that do that, save New Orleans and the UK. If so, did you have a good time?

    yes, it is, yes i did.

    12th night is the start of the mardi gras carnival season. i say this as an explanation for my latest pic; i don't normally go out in public dressed in a defrocked nun's outfit and a purple feather mask! icon_lol.gif

    it was a semi-private party, not advertised or published about, so the crowd was small but friendly. i recognized and spoke with several people that i have been nodding and saying hello to during my knee-rehab strolls thru the gayborhood of marigny-bywater here in New Orleans.

    there was live big band swing music from the 1930's and '40's, an open bar with "heavy pour" and delicious, flaky king cake.

    i was in heaven!

    it was a most enjoyable, therapeutic evening for me.

    You're being way too modest with the title of Queen of Wilton Manors. With your military training, everybody knows you can annex more territory at will. There is only one true Queen...and her name is not Elizabeth.

    Happy Birthday to the undisputed Queen of the Universe.

    Delighted to hear it! We have GOT to get up to NOL for some of these things. South Florida is fun, and we've invited you here, but it does get repetitious for us.

    I think we may have some extra free time around Mardi Gras. I'd rather drive there than fly, as I know the local roads quite well and would prefer having my own wheels. I'll start lobbying C about it.

    Queen of Wilton Manors is said in jest, at least for me. The real queen, or queens, are others well known to us. But they do claim the unofficial Mayor of Wilton Manors is my partner, I hear this said all the time.

    I see you are in Fort Lauderdale. If you're in the WM area please give me a heads up. My partner & I love to meet RJ members. Do you know Rosie's? Our favorite place for lunch at present, please meet us there as our guest. icon_biggrin.gif
