Photo a week...

Wednesday was golf with my beloved "old guys". Howard, seated...informed me when calling to tell me our tee time..... that I should bring cake. He said it was a certain "old" guy's birthday on Saturday..but, that he didn't want to miss out on cake and maybe if it was after the fact..well, I would think it wasn't worth baking one then. He wanted it to be big enough so a few folks hanging around the course could have a piece too.... pretty cheeky ... but, when you get to be 90 you can be cheeky if you want to. I think you should be able to do any damn thing you please by then! as long as you don't hurt yourself.... ...lol.... or even if you do... what does it matter.. or so Howard says....










his feet were really bothering him this day, but he gamely managed the full nine. At the end he said...well, they don't hurt any more now than they did when I started..but, we all knew he was suffering....











it was a great day. Just the right temperature for whacking the ball around.... a few strange clouds so it didn't get too hot.....











..........still clowning around even if his feet were sore....

oh, and the cake? .... carrot cake with real cream cheese icing... ..his favourite and seeing as it just happens to be mine too, I have a great recipe ...was declared delicious by all who stopped by the table to wish Howard a happy day....... Mr. BV. was lucky there were two slices left from the 9 X 13 cake....

Hi Vee,

How neat that you could have a round of golf and they look like lovely old Guys.
How amazing to still be playing golf at 90! ~Happy birthday Howard and they would have loved the carrot cake, I know I would have. You must spoil them and they must love you.

Hugs

Enjoy ... your reno's ;o)))

Hey BVee thanks for checking in on us and I love to shovel snow so that's not a worry. It's the sputtering, fuming, loud, motorized machines that I don't like.

Happy Birthday to Howard, albeit a little late. I love hearing about golfing days with your elderly buddies. It sounds like you would all be a lot of fun to hang with and Howard is a very young-looking 90 year old. Your cake looks scrumptious!

You guys are a riot, I love it!

Gosh, I hope I look that good when I'm 90 (not sure I look that good NOW). Love the photo of you with the "guys".
Happy Birthday, Howard!
