B is for Birthday, P for planting and H for hope.

B is also for Bugger, bastard, bum, bitch, bloody, bloody, bugger and bum.

But no matter how much I stomp about,

No matter how much I curse and fuss,

No matter how much I wish today would miss the bus
or that tomorrow will be to late,

It ain't gonna change that today I turn 48.

P for planting. I got around to planting the purple A for asparagus this morning and some Beefsteak tomatos. As the soil has been previously prepared for other crops it was just a matter of adding some compost and cow manure and planting straight away.

H is for hoping like heck the two Isa brown hens, Bill and Ben, don't fly the coop and dig them all up.

H is also for Hot-dog. I love hot-dogs and as I am home 'all', alone today for my birthday I'm now going to take myself off to make a hot dog with cheese and fried onion as a present to myself. And unlike the modern version of a hot dog I'll toast and butter the roll as well.

Fare thee well my fellow bloggers and have a nice day

bfn Stewart.

48, you're only young still. Those B words could also come in handy for the chickens as well. Have you tried clipping their wings?

Happy Birthday Stewart! I love the sneaky birthday snack you have planned. Enjoy! As to 48 and growing older in general - I think it sucks frankly. Keep the wisdom - I want to do a cart wheel again and when I stupidly tried a while back I nearly put my back out. Damn!!

Only 2 more years and you can have the big 5-0 birthday party too!!

Sorry, couldn't resist. The way I feel better about an impending birthday, is to look a decade ahead. So then I can say, at least I'm not THAT old, LOL.

Insurance policy is, there's always another decade ahead to distract me, ;)

Happy birthday!!
