    Thanks, guys. This birthday is traditionally considered a big one as I'm 75 today. Three quarters of a century sounds like a lot but doesn't feel all that much, at least in in my head.

    A real non event in the time of covid, it's just another day in the life with nothing special planned to mark it. I'm fine with that. There is nothing anybody can give me or do that would make my day except tendering sincere good wishes so thanks for helping to make my day!

    I always feel purty good, youthful, energetic - until I get a gander of the old fart in the mirror.

    Happy birthday! Yer only as old as ya feel (so I'd suggest looking for a 29 yo..... )

    Happy birthday! I'll be pouring a glass of rum in your honor tonight.

    Happy birthday Lew! You're missed here in Seattle. But I hope life is good for you and your family there.

    Happy birthday (and many more!)

    Classic rum cocktail from the '20s.


    El Presidente

    2 parts rum
    1 part dry vermouth
    1 part dry Curaçao
    1 healthy splash of fresh grenadine or fresh raspberry syrup.

    Stir well over ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Serve with a citrus twist.

    [very tasty!]

    Huh. Doing the math to when I first met you, I thought you were about my age or a touch order, meaning 10-15 years less than you were. You're doing well, my friend.
