George B ~ Porsche ~ My Birthday ~ Oysters

Good 42ยบ morning. Happy Labor Day.

I received so many nice emails and FB birthday wishes yesterday. What fun! Thanks to all of you. A funny one... my old high school pal, Jim Harper, is technically challenged! LOL. I got a notice that the card I sent him had been picked up. HUH???? I clicked the link and sure enough it was an e birthday card from me to him. HUH????? So, what happened was Jim put his email in instead of mine and reversed our names so the card said Happy Birthday Harper! LOL. Still laughing. Sorry Jim, ratted you out. Thanks for the apology call though and wishes. xo

... And a HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my friend, George Bachmeier, LASD ret. I hope you have a wonderful day George!

Yesterday I went over to Brian and Jen's in the afternoon. Brian had the tent trailer all set up so he and Tucker and Sami could "camp out" last night. Tucker and Sami wanted to show me the trailer and then Tucker and I played a game of Sorry out there. He won! Jen poured me a glass of wine and she had cooked a great dinner! The marinated steaks I took over there were wonderful and she made a spectacular birthday cake... chocolate and peanut butter! Sami climbed on the dome, Tucker and Jen played cards, Brian and Tucker checked out the fish pond, and Maggie did what she does best. Atlas was a love, as always! Jean had given me a gift of a lovely red pitcher and it was wrapped in bubble wrap. The kids wanted it to pop and I said it's a lot of fun to put it on the ground and ride over it with your bicycle. They did just that and LOVED it! Sounded like firecrackers going off. Pictures on the Smilebox...
