Happy Birthday dear Dad and Me,
Happy Biiiirrrrthdddaaayyy to Dad and Me.

Happy Birthday Dad (87) and I am now 44. Dad will be enjoying (hopefully) a pineapple upside-down cake that Mom baked yesterday, along with fried chicken for dinner today.

I have had a weekend of Birthday Dinners; Thursday was an un-official friendship dinner with Bense (he didn’t know it was my Birthday on Sunday), Friday night was dinner with Shannon at 54th Street Bar & Grill, Saturday was dinner with Jim at Cafe Trio, and today on my actual Birthday I will be eating with Shannon at Jess & Jim’s Steak House in Martin City. What a wonderful way to celebrate!

I also got a surprise from Mom & Dad in the mail – a box of Dutch pastries (12 Dutch Letters) from Jaarsma Bakery in Pella Iowa. A full dozen to enjoy! I have a little Dutch in me and we always use to stop in Pella on the way to the Grandparent’s house and get these Dutch Pastries. Pella is know for their Tulip Time every year. The Letters got delivered on Friday while Shannon and I were out at dinner and I didn’t see them till I got the mail on Saturday.

Have a great Birthday Dad!
