Its my Birthday tomorrow I will be 71 years young and as I look back on my birthday celebrations, the one that I can honestly say that was my best birthday.
It all began when my partner and I decided to tour Europe for 2 years. So we bought,a camper van and started our journey. We decided to spend the winter skiing in the French Alps Bourg Saint Maurice. We went from being so so skiers to fearless nuts. During the season we made some lifelong friends. The following June we decided to park up our campervan and to cycle with our tent and equipment from the south of France to Spain. 6 weeks later we crossed back into France via Andorra Pas de la Casa 2,080 m (6,820 ft) and on to Mirepoix where we decided to head for a camping run by a dutch french couple that a nice dutch couple who we had skied with had suggested we visit. To our surprise it was a nudist campsite, but as we had cycled 100 km that day we had no other option. Our first ever nudist camping, but in the bar and restaurant you must wear cloths. We went to the Bar around 22:00. and Just before midnight I told the barman to give everyone a drink on me as it was my 40th Birthday.¨That's not the way we do things here¨ as he hands me a sword from the wall and a bottle of Crémant de Limoux ( local Champagne). I managed to open it on my 3rd swipe and the party began. Everyone in the bar wanted to open a bottle so 5 hours later and 20 or so empty bottles we all ended up making french onion soup in the kitchen. I didn't have any cake, but had a great party with 15 strangers and to make it even better the owners didn't charge for the party.

Set the bar pretty high there!

On my 18th birthday I was moved from CICU and got my own room after my first open heart. The nurses brought me a cake. Call it my most memorable. 😁

I like a simple life. Going to Texas Roadhouse (barbecue) for dinner, with my gal, always works for me. And no, I don't scrutinize what I eat, everything is fair game, no pun intended. It is my yearly thing.

My 2020 birthday fell on my 7th day in the hospital for my BAVS. I was brought a sponge cake with strawberries, from the hospital food service department, at lunch. It was one of the only things I was able to enjoy during the 7 days! Come to find out, my surgeon wanted me out because the first spike of COVID had just started to go crazy and he didn't want anywhere near it. I was released late afternoon. Otherwise, I would have stayed a day or two longer. I had only met about 98% of the protocol to be released. From my surgeon, happy birthday, you get to go home! I was so ready! Same as @Superman, I call it my most memorable. 😁
