Congratulations, salutations and commiserations to PB, high school friend, country gentleman and guitarist extraordinaire.
Best wishes for continued good health, and the extra pocket cash that comes from now getting free prescriptions!

Goodonya Peeb, keep racking them up.

Lucky you, my free meds don't kick in till about September and that only last till the end of the year, when the cycle restarts.

Oh, this wasn't a self congratulatory post to myself, Al. (I'm a bit ahead of this fellow in reaching this milestone.)
No, this P. B. got older today in a village north of me..... he lurks in here, but I haven't seen a post for some time.

Just wishing him a good birthday, in case he slowed down enough to find it here.

In that case, consider my post as premature salutations!

And when we were young, the problem was nocturnal omissions!

Oh, Happy Day to the "other" PB. Don't forget there's the $100.00 deductible to work off first. And.......make sure all prescriptions are ones that are covered. It adds up to quite a bit of a bonus - even with the $100 deductible. The Government added about another 100 meds to their list of items under full coverage. We just have to hope that we'll never need the $1,000 a month stuff that's not covered. And don't forget that FREE fishing license !

My timing for the fishing license was perfect- my last full three year license ran out after the season closed in 2011, so now I'm free to haul them in with a vengeance.
Well. not exactly- seniors are still subject to the limits and regulations, etc., which means possession of 5 trout/salmon combo (yes, that includes the freezer- not just the daily catch).

The irony of course is that salmon stocks on G.B. have dropped so much (due to zebra mussels, mainly, decimating the baitfish base) that there are few fish to catch now. Last summer the boat sat on the beach, on the trailer: I caught only a few bass from the dock. Instead of losing fish, I lost golf balls!
However, a fishing buddy started catching some decent salmon in our bay, so things are looking up a bit for this summer.

Trout season opens this Saturday at 12:01 am!
But that warm March weather likely means they finished their spawning run early this year- stream fishing results may be light this weekend.

Is Thornbury still the place to head for ?

Actually, Thornbury (mouth) and any stream mouth that is on the Great Lakes is open all year to trout and salmon fishing.
But in the stream, creeks, rivers...you have to wait until Saturday.

(which of course has nothing to do with the extraordinary number of candles on PB's cake this week!)
