It’s Still Sweet . . .

Today’s my seventy mumble-mumble birthday, and so once again Jan and I are in the fabled Sweet Spot, the 20 days each year when Jan and I are the same age.

Because I skipped first grade, and Jan lost a year due to an auto accident, we were in the same year in college when we met. So she had no idea that she was almost a year older than me.

In fact she didn’t realize ii until months later when we were at the courthouse getting our marriage license. I think she just looked at me and decided, what the hell.

And 54+ years later, it’s still working.

We tried to sit on the patio with our coffee this morning, but after all the rain we’ve had the last week, our sojourn was called on account of mosquitos.

Lots and lots of mosquitos.

About 3:30 we headed up to Webster to have dinner at the Saltgrass Steakhouse there. Since we just did the one down in Galveston last week for our Anniversary, we decide to stay local this time.

Our steaks and wedge salads were as delicious as always, but the highlight of the meal, at least for Jan, and me too really, was dessert.

When we were at Saltgrass last week, Jan was disappointed that they hadn’t coming out with their delicious Pumpkin Cheesecake.

So Jan was giddy to find that they just got their first shipment in yesterday, and we may have been the first people to order it.

Then it was on over to the Clear Lake Kroger’s to pick up a couple of prescriptions for Jan  and some groceries. Then it was down toward home with a quick stop at the PO along the way.

A very nice birthday!
