Fifty-eight years ago this morning, my mother went to the hospital at West Point New York and shortly thereafter I arrived on planet earth.
I’ve always liked having a birthday late in August, at the tail end of the summer and right before labor day.
It is the most relaxed time of year for me, with the start of the fall season right around the corner.
I plan to celebrate it at the beach with family and friends.
Happy Bday Fred.Meeting friends to drink some natural bubbles up the street and kill the evening later and I’ll raise a glass to you!
A sincere happy birthday!
Happy birthday to you. Wishing you many more. Onward & upwards!
38 years ago this morning, my parents made a similar journey – just a few thousand miles away in Dublin. I’ve learned to love a late August birthday. Happy Birthday!
Enjoy. Your mom must have really liked her OBGYN.
.How about Charleston or Savannah in August?JLMwww.themusingsofthebigredca…
As an ‘Old Fart’ surfer, you know how brutal Folly Beach and Charleston can be in the August heat. Downtown, all day Sunday, and there was no escaping the humidity. Fortunately, we know where the local watering holes are.
.Amen. Savannah has a bunch of roof top bars that are nice even in August when the sun goes down, but it is hotter than Hades. I am headed there this week.JLMwww.themusingsofthebigredca…
Clearly the newest Southern Bell continues to reign supreme. Birthday or no birthday.

Happy Birthday, Nicola!
My Uncle John’s birthday today. He would have been 73. He passed away when he was 57. Make the most of the years you have ahead of you. John missed out on his golden years, sadly. It was very unfair.
Happy birthday! Thank you for sharing a big slice of your 58 yrs – including this morning – with the AVC community.
Happy Birthday Fred! I wish you all the best for the coming year and thank you in advance for the next 365 posts!
Enjoy a great day at the beach with family and friends, Fred. Happy Birthday and a great year ahead for you and the avc community!
Happy birthday Fred! Hope it is a great one.
Happy birthday Fred. Sounds like you’re going to spend it in the best possibly way.
Many happy returns for the day, Fred. Enjoy. X
Happy Birthday, Fred!
Happy Birthday! The weather is perfect for a day at the shore!
Enjoy. And, keep the Jeep top on this year.
Happy Birthday, Fred! Even though I don’t agree with you on some political issues, I have the ultimate respect for you and your family. You are a good man. Enjoy!
Happy Birthday-were all the blankets and onesies in that hospital grey and black?
Happy Birthday Fred!
Happy birthday, Fred! You’re an inspiration to many! 🙂
HB, Fred… enjoy the moment. August is my favorite month of the year and Hamptons my favorite place… I empathize.
I believe that statistically the most birthdays, at least in the US, are late August to mid September (especially around September 9 or so). Lots of Virgos that are products of holiday parties I guess. I’m also late August and I share Fred’s sentiments about having a birthday this time of year.Happy birthday dude.
Happy Birthday Fred. I wish you many, many more.
Happy birthday, Fred! Wishing you every (continued) happiness in the year ahead. Late August must be the best time for a birthday. Mine is in late November (not a great time), so I created a “pretend” birthday on August 22nd, which I plan to celebrate at the beach with friends…excellent plan!

.HBD, Freddie.You must have been born at the “old” Keller Hospital on Washington Ave. I got sewed up there one time. They’ve since closed down their baby delivery business.There’s a famous poem about babies born on Army posts. I think it was Kipling. I can’t find it.I was born at a dispensary at Camp Kilmer.JLMwww.themusingsofthebigredca…
Happy Birthday, good to you and kindest regards!
Happy birthday 🙂
Happy Birthday Fred!
Happy Birthday Fred 🙂
Happy belated birthday, Fred! Throw on a Tennis album when you hit the beach and enjoy the time.
Happy Birthday, Fred! So many of the best people are born in August. 🙂
Happy Birthday, belatedly! You are so young, your whole life is ahead of you!
