Happy Birthday

That would depend entirely on whose bottom you are referring to.
And what you meant by "up"

Happy Birthday, and remember there is no pain but Champagne.

Cheers

Happy Birthday, BTW you appear to have a bit of locking wire in ones glass.

ĎThat is a Costa Boda flute from Sweden. Artistic design. No metal involved. 😊

Once upon a time, I managed to get gold status with BA. I always used to enjoy a glass or two of fine champagne in the lounge at 8 o’clock in the morning when I travelled, so it’s never too early.

Hope you had a great day!

One time I was on United Business Class transatlantic. The FA was walking down the aisle with a bottle of Veuve. I commented that was my brand. She said ĎHereí and handed me the bottle. I put on the table next to me. A few minutes later another FA came by and asked if she could put it on ice. I handed it back and said yes. Not sure if I got it all back but I tried. 😊

The Widow is my wifeís favorite, and thus an integral part of all of our celebrations.
Many happy returns!

(parenthetically, if you remain upright, hie thee to an upscale wine shop and score a bottle of the 2008 vintage brut. It is head and shoulders above the 2012, and is up there with the best Champagnes Iíve ever had, and over here, at least, itís still only about $100/bottle)

Well, it took some work but I am on my 8th and last glass of champagne. Not bad for a 15 hour effort.

Did you reach parity? One glass in, one glass out?
