Today is Philip's Birthday!

Good Morning, Everyone!

Today is Philip's birthday so I am announcing it to the world. He does so many wonderful things for all of us with his blog of history and island life taking us on a journey into the past as well as the present.

Philip is loved by his family and his community.

Today is a special day for him and for his grandson, Lachlan. They are exactly ten years apart!















 Thank you for helping make his day extra special!

    Why is it customary to place candles on a cake? I tried to county the number of candles to see if they represented something but I can't count that high. Yes Happy Birthday Guys. It looks like a brownie or is it fudge?

    Happy Birthday Lachlan and Phillip!!!! Although I have never met either one of you, I read the Village Craftsman blog almost daily and I always enjoy shopping at your store when I am on the island. Hope you both have a wonderful day!

    Many more birthdays to both you and Lachlan. Has he inherited your tale telling ability or his dad's fiddle playing talent? Your blog and a cup of coffee start my days every morning!

    1. Lachlan is his own person! He can carry on a conversation with anyone, and he knows a lot of stories...but he hasn't picked up the fiddle yet.

    Happy Birthday from Pittsburgh area! I had the pleasure of buying sea shell necklaces from Lachlan last year when my husband and I were on Okracoke. I will treasure them always, and I get many compliments on them! Thank you Lachlan!
