For my 45th birthday I wanted something pretty unique and between my wife getting me a poncho styled after the one in “Fistful of Dollars” and one of my friends who is extremely talented at crafting they were able to put something together for me which is now my favorite possession.
While I am fairly certain I currently live up to its ridiculousness, I hope to someday live up to its coolness!
The flag in the background is hanging because my birthday party was a celebration of all the holidays we missed together because of Covid. We put up a Christmas tree in the living room, Halloween decorations in the dining room, Independence Day in half the back yard with Easter in the other half, St. Patrick’s and Valentine’s Day in the bathrooms, and NYE in the kitchen. We did the midnight countdown, sang happy birthday to everybody, and had an Easter Egg hunt with eggs filled pot candy and mini servings of magic mushrooms.
