Happy Birthday Gus!

You know how they always sing about the person who is the ”wind beneath my wings?” Well, I guess you can say that my husband Gus, is that for me. We have been married for going on 36 years. He is the father of our four children and my life partner. We have travelled all over the United States together and have been through good times and bad, but he has always been my protector and my rock. He is always up for a fun adventure and this past Thanksgiving was no exception. It was his idea to take a road trip over the holiday in his new Camaro convertible which he bought since moving back to Tucson. He has waited a very long time for one and I am happy that he was able to get it! We are not getting any younger! Today is his 60th Birthday and since I cannot buy him anything as grand as that car, I can only tell him how much I love him and how much I appreciate him going birding with me, buying me cameras, binoculars and spotting scopes and then taking me on birding adventures even though his is not really interested in birds!

Happy Birthday Gus!

Thanks for showing me the world!

I love you!
