Thank you ! No male in my family history made it beyond 65 , so I never expected to make it to 70 , LOL. My wife bought me a nice Smith & Wesson .357 magnum pistol to add to my gun collection. I have a friend in Northern Maine who has let me use his camp for hunting & fishing for 60 years. My gun collection is for his family when I pass away. I used to target shoot (not shoot animals) , but now just collect guns. Anyway , thanks again for the birthday wishes. bdc.jpg

I actually had 2 birthdays in Japan. The first one was low key , I had just arrived 2 weeks before. The second , my 21st was way more fun. I bought bottles of assorted booze for about 4 months before my birthday and I worked in a Japanese bar called the Pitt Inn in Fukuoka. Had about 50 Japanese friends and started celebrating about 7PM and the party went till 5AM the next morning. When my 2 years there were almost up , I actually thought about going AWOL from the Navy , LOL. I can honestly say at 71 , the 2 best years of my life were in Fukuoka. If I hadn't been so crazy about guns and hunting in Maine , I would probably still be living in Japan now.
