I have a time-honored tradition of buying myself birthday (and Christmas) gifts. Hey, it's a dirty job, but somebody's gotta do it.
So let's see what I got myself this year, shall we? Let's see, there's a flying cat:
A flying frog, similar to one I bought myself at the State Fair a few years back:
Here they are, patrolling the living room:
Some miscellaneous goodies:
And the cats surprised me by enlisting a personal shopper to get me an address buoy for the front porch!:
All in all, a very enjoyable birthday. Here's hoping for many more.
