What? But It’s My Birthday!

Jerry wanted to take me out for supper for my birthday. In fact…he wanted to take me out for all three meals today! He’s been chief cook and bottle washer while I’ve been sick and I think this was his way of saying enough is enough!

Rob and Jessica took us to Lanny’s for breakfast so they kind of cut into his plan but that’s okay. It was wonderful eating and visiting with them.

Jerry asked what I’d like for lunch and I said a coney dog would be so delicious! I love them and seldom get to have one. So out we went a second time. He said he heard Big Boy has good coney dogs… I thought Big Boy??? Oh well, if that’s where he wants to take me, okay. But he didn’t stop there. He went on to the new A&W Root Beer Drive-in! We each had a delicious coney dog, fries and root beer! It was soooo good!

For supper, he asked where I’d like to go to eat. I haven’t had a wet burrito in a long time and Shirleen’s makes them really, really good. So we headed to Shirleen’s…whoa…they were closed! How come? On Halloween? On my birthday?

We decided to go to Riverside, a very nice restaurant in the next town. We drove over and were getting out of our car as we noticed there weren’t very many cars in the lot. A sign read: closing at 5:30. It was 5:40! What? They closed for Halloween! But it’s my birthday!

We drove back to Midland and ended up at Damon’s. We had a delicious dinner and are now back home. Happy Birthday!

I hope I can function tomorrow after running around three times today! Hopefully I’ll sleep better tonight! I’m almost out of medicine so I should be better, right? Besides, it’s my birthday!
