Happy birthday to CH

Today is the eve of CH's birthday and finally, he is willing to open his presents. He's traditional like that. So far, he has received a pair of binoculars from me, torchlight from his best friend and a membership to St Andrews Society from Patricia.

I've been counting and this is the 9th time I've celebrated his birthday! That's how long we have been together. I remember that first year, I made him a scrapbook of us. Looking back, it feels silly. Now I realise he's not into such things. Over the years, I've planned trips, staycations and surprises but this year, we're keeping it low key.

He's a blessed guy and each year, there is no lack of friends and family celebrating with him. Just the week leading to his birthday, he has had joint celebrations with Chris and Patricia, who are all July babies.
Celebrating with best friend Chris.

With Patricia, another July babe.

CH is a great guy which makes him a very likeable person. If more people can behave like him, I am sure the world will be a more peaceful place to live in.

I have never seen him lose his temper or raise his voice at others.
He is never judgemental or critical of people.
He is highly tolerant of my moods and nonsense.
He doesn't gossip or indulge in idle talk.
He is confident and is not bothered by people's opinion of him.
He is considerate and is never late.
He is well read and very knowledgeable.
He eats everything I cook whether it is delicious or not.
He loves my dog and treat my kids well.

Like everyone else, he has some shortcomings too. But since it is his birthday, I will not go into that.
