As time has it there was a birthday while we were on the road. Roger’s.
A good friend hoped we would never have this kind of surprise. Me too.
And of course there was some Texas humor. Susan has to remind me to zip up my pants every couple of days or so. I guess these wishes weren’t too far from the mark.
And of course there was cake. A two layer carrot cake with plenty of cream cheese frosting as it should be. Our friends Amanda and Douglas were also at Georgetown while we were there. We went to Chili’s for lunch and had cake that evening while we played a game of Uno.
We started out playing to 250 points but had two hands in a row where we had to go through the deck three or more times so as soon as someone got to 200 we called it a game. Lots of fun as always. We played some very competitive games of Quiddler as well.
So that event is past. I am heading for 70 now. Our average age is just a few weeks shy of 70. We are grateful for each other, our health, our families, our friends and all of the opportunities that come our way.
Roger and Susan
