I just want to thank those of you who took the time to wish me a Happy Birthday today. And believe it or not I even got a card via Snail Mail this afternoon. There are certainly less of those showing up every year. Most cards seem to be like the one my son emailed to me today.
It looks good, and is quite a bit lighter than the old Brown thing. We spent a few days last week shopping for the new rugs and came home with sticker shock. The first place we looked at came up with a price of $11000.00 plus tax for the two rugs we wanted. After shopping around a bit we got both pieces for about 10% of that. Not quite as nice maybe, but far easier on the bank balance.
Sylvia isn’t too sure about this one yet, as it doesn’t necessarily complement the chairs the way she wants. We do have three days to figure out if we want to keep it.
On my way to picking up the rugs I went to a tryout for a local Softball team. They have a couple of openings and there were 5 of us looking to fill the spots. I think I did pretty well, but there’s another practice on Thursday after which they’ll pick the best of us. The team plays in a ‘Competitive’ division, but they’re nowhere near as good as the Jokers that I played with this winter. I’ll let you know how things turn out.
Chocolate Cupcakes with Caramel Frosting. The iced ones are for me, and the plain ones for ‘She who doesn’t understand how I can eat something so sweet’! In case you didn’t notice, I even get an extra one!
So thanks again for the Birthday Wishes. I hope that your day was as good as mine.
