Birthday Recap

But first, Happy Birthday to Stephanie whose birthday I share and I can merrily reveal she is one year older

than I am. We used to co-celebrate by going out for Mexican food so I did hold to that tradtion by going out to Long Island and my sister's family and I went to Besito and we all had this tableside-made guacamole that is so good and the chips are so fresh and so hot that they smelled like popcorn. Oh were they good. I had this shrimp special which was shrimp, mushrooms, garlic and other stuff.

Then we went back to my sister's hourse, and I got lovely presents... this very cool scarf from Charlotte, one of those infinity scarves... so I have one cool with-it accessory... then Louisa gave me a mug and Clark gave me this ice maker where you make this big ice ball instead of using cubes and I saw something on tv about it, how it cools more and melts less. Here's one the cards ehich I love which speaks to my hatred of mice:


In case you can't tell, it's a mouse holding a gun waiting for the mouse to come out of its hole.

But my "main gift" as we say in our family, tongue in cheek, is a beautfiul opal bracelet from Scott and Mary. Opal is my birthstone, really a lovely piece where this does not do it justice:


So now I'm 66 and as my buddy Mac says, "It's better than that long dirt nap." And it is.

Happy birthday Stephanie!

Sounds like you really had a lovely birthday, everything looks perfect. Given my recent run of mice, I appreciate your card.��

Belated birthday wishes, Pat. It looks like you had a wonderful week! Yay!

My little dog Scooter nearly died this week, so I've had a challenging week. He developed severe pancreatitis and associated liver issues and was hospitalized for 4 days. He's home now, eating well, and fairly normally active. Whew!
