Happy Birthday and Happy Spring

Today is my husband's sixtieth birthday. What a milestone! I am so proud of his accomplishments in life. He is a role model for setting goals and achieving them. For example:
  • attaining the Eagle Scout award

  • being first chair in trombone in high school

  • working at a gas station from age fourteen to earn money for his first car by age 16

  • working his way through college and graduating (after changing majors three times)

  • switching careers from a university administrator to successful stockbroker at age 36

  • becoming such a good slalom water-skier that other boaters on the lake would stop and watch

  • becoming an expert marksman

  • becoming a private pilot

  • best of all, being a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, and friend

I love you, Charlie McBrayer!

We are heading to Sunset Beach, North Carolina, tonight for a beach weekend with family and friends. Yep, I'm playing hooky tomorrow. The weather should be sunny but a little cool for sunning or swimming. But we can't wait! Here is a little snapshot of spring, which is looking glorious here in central North Carolina- especially since the sun decided to shine again yesterday!

Happy Birthday Charlie!!!
What a lovely tribute - to what sounds like a "one in a million" guy.
Enjoy your weekend at the beach.
