Photo Friday: March Birthday Boys, Again

It is time for what has become an annual tradition here for my wife to get a photo of me holding Ace in March, since we both celebrate our birthdays then. We got Ace from a shelter back in September, 2012 when has we about six months old. Here’s a pic we got of the two of us back in 2014.

Now he is six years old, and there a bit more of him to hold! He’s still a kitten at heart though, and we play some sort of game with him every day. Thankfully he likes to be picked up to pose for the camera.

As for me, I am finally old enough to get what citizens in some countries have available at a much earlier age: national health insurance! I never thought I would be looking forward to this, but after several years of having expensive and mediocre coverage it was a nice birthday present.

Ace has great coverage at the local vet, where he charms the staff at every visit. “He’s so funny” is a phrase we hear often, along with “he likes to talk.” Yep, it’s so true, he’s a funny boy. He’s not spoiled much either, hogging my chair at every opportunity and mugging for the camera.

I hope you have enjoyed the photos, and I’ll be back soon with more happenings from Happy Acres!

    Happy birthday to you and Ace! The question now becomes….who’s going to get the bigger slice of cake? 😉 And hurray for national health insurance! When my dad was sick, I often thought of the treatments, surgery and meds that he took for over 7 years and how that would have landed my parents in the poorhouse, and then some, had it not been for the coverage provided by our health care system.

    Happy Birthday, Boys!! Ace looks like quite a guy. He’s very similar to my Lyle who joined our family 5 years ago. My daughter rescued him from a city dumpster. We have given him our country home for his home and we love him to pieces!

    Ah yes…Medicare. I’m there myself. So far, honestly, no complaints.

    Have a wonderful next year!
