    Jenny and Gene,
    The photos and commentary are outstanding. I am so impressed with you both. I look forward to hearing all of the stories about your adventures. Gene, be sure to take good care of Jenny on her special day tomorrow. Sounds like you need to find a nice place with a shower. Happy Birthday, Jenny. We all miss you.

    Happy B-Day goes out to Jenn ! We know you are enjoying it. Make Gene take you someplace for an over indulgent feast. And I don’t mean one on the micro-stove by starlite…. LOL Keep on enjoying and be safe.

    Happy Birthday Jenn it does look like Gene and you are having a really great experience. Great picture of the owl, we had one move into our neighborhood and boy do they help keep the rodent population down.

    Hope you find a special way to celebrate your birthday!

    Happy Bday Jenny!! Make sure Gene is wearing his helmet. When I beat him in chess next time we meet I do not want any brain trauma excuses. Your trip looks very fun. Have a bowl of ice cream tomorrow and think of us.

    Hey Jenny and Geno! Chicago’s just not the same without 320 E. 18th as a stop along the way to everywhere. Miss you both but loving the blog and the great pics. Try to find Paul Karr’s hotsprings spa for a birthday treat. Enjoy your day Jenny.

    Good Morning Jenn. I first have to start by saying Happy Birthday. I must tell you that I am so happy to have you as part of our family and the love and care you have for Gene is quite unexplainable. How many women do you think would be willing to ride a bike across the country in search of the same sense of adventuring as Gene has enjoyed. You are an incredible person, and more importantly an incredible wife to my Brother. We love you lots and hope you enjoy YOUR day. Make sure Gene pampers you with at least a mud bath.

    Love Brett, Michelle and RJ.

    Hello Jenny. Happy Birthday!!! Looks like you two are having a great time – nice pictures. FYI: We posted the picture you took of the horses outside of your house on The Well. Instead of a Vacation Picture, it was a Retirement photo.

    Best Wishes
