George Washington's Birthday ~ Taprock w/ Family ~ Tucker Bowling ~ Mo' Rain ~ LOL Our Generation Theme Song ~ Joan & Teresa ~ Annette ~ Margaritas & Cherry Pie

Good 42º cloudy morning. A break from the rain for a few days will be nice. NEED sunshine!
George Washington's birthday today. Our first President.

Yesterday I met up with Brian, Jen, Tucker, Sami,  and Jean at Taprock to celebrate the birthday brunch we didn't do on Valentine's Day.

My breakfast... vegetable omelette, fruit, and blueberry muffin... OMGOOOD!

We left there and headed to the bowling alley. Tucker had a tournament.

I needed to get home and didn't stay for the tournament. Tucker is a great bowler! He loves it!

Of course it started raining again... about 10:30 am. There went stuff I needed to do outside! Well, that didn't get done! We ended up with 1/8" rain from continuous drizzle all day.
Email pal 'Gator' sent this... said it's his new theme song! LOL

Today is my friend Joan Knoeppel 
Lopes birthday. I got to know Joan at my vet's office. She's one of those neat ladies who love your pets like you do. She has a twin sister, Teresa, and together they are celebrating this infamous day.  HAPPY BIRTHDAY LADIES!!!

February 22nd
National Margarita Day

The date has also changed to Cherry Pie Day, because it's George Washington's birthday and he cut down the cherry tree!

GOOD Monday morning to you,

Cherry cheese pie- a favorite here. But for the 4th of July.

Given the state of election-coverage, that margarita looks wonderful.

Sorry you didn't get whatever you planned on done with the rain. It is flag gorgeous here, yesterday in the mid 70's. So I didn't finish inside because I chose to putter about outside.

That video was off-the charts funny. Thank you, Gator and Sue for sharing.
