A Belated happy birthday to you....2manycookbooks!
I guess if I'm starting to join the teapotters, I should become part of the birthday party too!
My birthday is July 16. For many, many years I worked on my birthday, but this year I was able to celebrate it with my son and grandsons, seeing as I've just retired. My colleagues all think I retired too young, but I didn't want to wait until I was old and decrepit! Besides, 66 isn't too young to retire, is it?
