Whole Duck: Skin, Fat and Bones

Yesterday for my birthday Lynette made a whole roast duck with mashed potatoes, green beans, turnips and biscuits.  Everything was great.  Even though the duck was all skin, fat and bone; it tasted good.
Lynette was disappointed and said she would buy only the breast next time. All that mattered to me was her effort to make my birthday special.

I stayed in my JP's all day.  It was just the two of us.  My brother called and sang happy birthday with his wife and my neice.
My daughter called twice.  I could hear my grandson Miles in the background. Her husband wished me happy birthday just as Miles slammed the bathroom door on him.

It was a quiet and relaxed birthday, just what I was in the mood for.


  1. A belated Happy Birthday to you, John! The duck looks succulent and amazing and I love turnips and everything you mentioned. :)

  2. Happy Birthday. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

  3. Hallo John,

    and I see you enjoyed with the family ... the duck looks great ! and the cake as well !
    hope you are fine... and wish you all the best dear John.
    cari saluti da Padova, Italia.

  4. Happy Birthday John. The candles are different...
    Looks a nice duck..

    1. It was great. I just wish the duck had some meat on it.

  5. Hey, happy birthday, John! And when you say you stayed in your "JPs" all day, I assume that's a typo for PJs and not an abbreviation for "Justices of the Peace." That would be weird, man, but I don't judge.

  6. happy birthday John! May you have many many more. You had a better day than the skinny duck! ha ha ha ha
