#5 takes the stage


We let him pick his own number.
Anyone who rolls into the driveway, car stuffed to the hilt, bike strapped on the back bumper, shirt irregularly buttoned, is automatically awarded that privilege.
Anyone who comes for a five minute goodbye but then stays to serenade us with original songs on a borrowed guitar deserves even more than that. One would think that such a person should be offered birthday cake with whipped cream and a candle, at the very least. We provided such, along with the requisite (albeit belated) birthday song and advice for the year ahead.
Off he goes now, shirt now adequately fastened, to the New England coast where a ferry awaits him. He promised to let me know when he is famous, so see this space for the breaking news.
Friend #5, you are my biggest fan.

Best movie quote ever.

And a pretty great guy, too.

He is quite a guy - and he's off to start his own style of "irregularly buttoned shirts" if he's not careful. He is a trend setter, you know. ;) (That was a line just for him, and I hope he smiles.)
We really love him around here! And we'll miss his easy going style, no matter how it looks that day.

speaking of belated birthday wishes, I owe you one, also.
Happy happy.

p.s. I didn't know I was quoting a movie....honest.
