Lyn took the opportunity to document another year with a birthday selfie. Still lookin' good!
JOE'S BELATED BIRTHDAY PRESENT
I got him a new tri-fold wallet from Tommy Hilfiger, as I heard he was desperately in need of one.
INDOOR/OUTDOOR THERMOMETER AND "GRAVITY"
Lyn and Joe did as I did long, long ago and threw away their old indoor/outdoor thermometer when they couldn't get it to register. I found out you have to put the batteries in the sensor and the readout unit in in a certain way. Live and learn.
BELATED BIRTHDAY GIFT #2
I got Joe a really good book about the Alamo. Unfortunately, it was the only copy at the bookstore, so I may have to order me one. I love all things Alamo.
I got these cool windchimes for Lyn that go bong, bong, bong instead of tinkle, tinkle, tinkle. Neither one of us like the tinkly ones.
Joe got Lyn some beautiful dangling earrings. Really nice stuff!
BIRTHDAY CAKE TIME
This cake had the creamiest frosting I've ever seen on a cake. Yum!!!
Lyn, Joe, and I went to their favorite Mexican food restaurant in Hamilton for Lyn's birthday. I think the name was Ortega's.
JOE AND LYN
Photo ops abound. I forgot my stupid camera, though! What's up with that?
DOUG AND LYN
Since I was one of the birthday kids, I had to get in the shot.
This Smartphone's camera adds about 20 pounds to everyone. Yikes! None of us are as large as we look. No, really!
JOE DOING THE TEXAN THING
Nothing says "Texan" like a guy leaning on the bed of his pickup.
THE NON-TEXAN THING
Then there's me.
TREKKIE SCORES #2
I got the second season of the original Star Trek on Blu-ray. And just in time, too, as I'm almost done with season one. Cool!
I also scored a huge stack of DVDs, as well, and ones I don't have already. Oh, yeah!
I also got a book about the career of one of my favorite catroonists, Chuck Jones, of Looney Toons fame. This guy did Bugs, Daffy, Foghorn Leghorn, Martin the Martian, etc. What a talent.
AT COUNTRY KITCHEN
I wanted fried catfish for my birthday dinner, so we went to Country Kitchen's all-you-can-eat buffet. Good God, was I full.
THE BIRTHDAY BOY
Lyn was apparently not happy with this shot, so . . .
. . . she tried for a vertical. Of course, I couldn't resist throwing a little humor into the mix. It just seemed logical somehow.
CALL THE FIRE DEPARTMENT
TIme for the blowhard to do his business before the cake gets baked yet another time. Woo hoo!!!
They don't call me Big Bag of Wind for nothing.
After the dinner I had, I barely had room for a piece of cake, but it was German Chocolate, so I dove in. Love that stuff!!!
ALL BETTER NOW
There's always room for German Chocolate Cake -- maybe.
