birthday 61

This has been a busy week for Dorothy and I. We celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary and today was the first anniversary of my retirement and also my 61st birthday. In keeping with our family tradition, Dorothy cooked the meal of my choice. Here's what we had: fried chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, squash, green beans, corn on the cob, corn bread, and iced tea. Instead of a cake we had peach cobbler and I made some chocolate tea ice cream. I was disappointed that Tara and her boy friend Dusty couldn't make it, but she had to work. I always like my family with me on special days, (and every other day, come to think of it)



After lunch an Oklkahoma style thunder storm swept in and blew over some trees and broke branches out of trees and almost flattened my corn.

Are you sure it wasn't all those people huffing and puffing to blow out your birthday candle that did the damage?

Aside from the storm, it looks like it was an excellent birthday/anniversary.

Happy Birthday/retirement anniversary! My birthday is coming up - will Dorothy come make me my birthday dinner? I'll have the same as you had, to make it easy on her. :)

Dawn: Dorothy said if you lived a little closer she would do it.
