Family birthday fun

Yesterday was my nephew's birthday and he invited us to join the celebration at his favorite local restaurant. It's a Mexican Restaurant not far from here.

I scanned the menu and chose refried beans, rice, and bean soup. Yum. There were bowls of chips and salsa in front of everyone. It was all I could do to keep from getting nakid' and jumping in a bowl of chips and eating my way out.

I finished my column for Christmas yesterday and I wrote about making a planning error for this surgery. I used the idea that I had a few nights ago, but I did this one with more detail. Jilda snorted with laughter when she proofed it. I'll post it on Christmas night.

Today was a relaxing day. I might go fishing before I head back to work in January.

I might be able to convince my blog buddy Joe at Cranky Old Man to come down a toss a few trout flies on the river.


  1. Glad that you had some quality family time and a relaxing day. Keep healing.

  2. DO you have any trees around the river, that's where my flies tend to land.

  3. Family get-to-gather's are always fun. Fishing? I say, I need to get a boat, every time we pass Lake Monroe just down the road. I am a lazy fisherman, I love to troll and read. Sherry and I used to do that 3-4 mornings a week. Gotta go fishing!

  4. Happy Birthday to your nephew. Glad you could enjoy some of the good food. It's hard to believe that Christmas Eve is tomorrow.

  5. Happy Birthday to your nephew. I hope that you will be able to chew soon. You must be loosing weight on that forced liquid diet. Merry Christmas with family and friends.

  6. Looks like a good birthday celebration. Please keep your clothes on.


  7. How I love Mexican food. I am going out for my son's birthday right after the first of the year. We'll have a few chips in your honor.

  8. Your nephew looks like a fun guy. Merry Christmas.

  9. Birthdays are special and great that he had a good one with family
