Happy Birthday, Dorknose

Dave_and_chicken_2

Dave is 40!  In the 24 years since we first roomed together, I don't recall ever throwing him a party.  Today the tradition continues, though I might buy him a beer or something when he visits Mexico in February.

Above: a pic from November with Dave and his ass-kicking chicken cooked in a clay pot.  I don't think he included much more than a chicken, some vegetables and seasoning (and some sausages), but it came out perfectly.  Growing up as I did with dried out flavorless chicken as a regular dinnertime feature, it was a revelation to discover that home-cooked chicken could be as fall-apart moist as this one was.  Way to go, Davebutt!  I hope you have a good dinner today, too.

That's funny--I don't feel a day over 59! Thanks, and I didn't miss your reference to being in Merida and sitting with 'some other 40-somethings'--do you really get used to it that fast?
