My Birthday

Autos of beauty
 This 1939 Chevrolet was new when I was born...
I feel like the the has-been celebrity, Yesterday I was somebody, today?  Just an old man. LOL

For today:
I am now over 81 years old. I am still smiling at what friend Rick over at Life 101 said.  Life is quick.  Funny we really do not know that until we are old.  LOL

I had a great day. Sherry took me to a local mom and pop restaurant called ‘Good Eats’. We both had a good breakfast, I had a Western Omelet. Very good.  She later took me to The Texas Road house for a med rare Filet.  Delicious. 

I always tell her I do not need anything for a present. BUT, BUT this year she gave me a choice:

I was getting excited. Hey I ain’t dead yet. I started having precious memories.  And then I opened the card. OUCH!

We both had a good laugh,  She smiled sorta coy like and said, “You must Catch me first!”…………   My weight loss program starts in the morning!  .......

Thanks for all the Birthday wishes. Life is great for me just now. Both our sons are doing well. WE have a marvelous varied family. Some have had SERIOUS person problems, but are ALL recovering and doing great.

We now have 7 grands and 10 great grands at least one more GGrand on the way.  Everyone healthy and doing very well.

Note: Please don’t worry about Sherry, if I catch her she is on the pill! ;-)

So glad to read and realize you BOTH enjoyed a delight-full day!
We love Texas Roadhouse. I, too, am a 'medium rare' sort, but prefer the bone-in ribeye.
Happy 1st day of your fiscal New Year!

Happy birthday Jack. I’m celebrating my birthday this weekend.
We’re at Mentone, Al. I thought about y’all today because there are RV parks everywhere.
We drove the scenic route through Little River Canyon.
It was rainy today but still beautiful.

So, while I am choking on a mouthful of cashews, I read this post ~ OMG is Sherry thinking she should be on "the PILL"??? You are a rare spouse who'd write that ~ knowing she reads your work!!! I wish you a very happy belated Birthday and hope Sherry doesn't get a hickory switch out to whup you with! Lots of Love and Hugs from Chobee...Glenda

I just knew you'd be treated to steak. But, a western omelet too? You're one lucky birthday boy. I'll bet you don't feel a day over your 50's with that talk about your bride. lol I'm glad you had such a nice day.
Love n' hugs from up north where it's snowing yet again. I really am so over it !!! Bill is making 40#s of summer sausage today. I'm still in recoup mode. I've been under the weather since before Christmas and soooo over this too
