It’s Been Busy…

In case you were wondering…

…this is where I’ve been lately.

Saturday was my birthday! Yay for me. First we went to the American Legion in my hometown, LeMars, for their monthly Steak Fry. I highly recommend it! Ten bucks for a big ol‘ steak, potato, salad bar, toast… And good conversation with good people!

Then off to the Chesterfield to see the band that was playing that night – Adam Douglas and the Deacons. Great band! Go see ’em!

Sunday it was off to the family farm to celebrate all the February birthdays. There must be something special about May, ’cause we have a LOT of February birthdays. Hmmm… Here’s a nifty photo of our chocolate-covered Goddaughter.

…And a pretty picture of said Goddaughter sitting in an old wooden chair.

Here’s me sitting in the same chair 38 years ago.

Monday afternoon after work I went to the funeral home to stand with some friends to honor a veteran. Tuesday morning we went back to stand at the church.

And yes, it was cold. But the American Legion Riders and Patriot Guard Riders were there anyway. It’s the right thing to do.

    Happy belated Birthday. The wife and I were in San Francisco last weekend to see the “Jersey Boys”. A musical about the life and times of Franki Valli and the Four Seasons. Good weather in San Francisco, and a good time.

    Yes, May must be the month when all kinds of things spring up like maypoles. My birthday was last Wednesday, but at least I don’t have to celebrate in the cold any more.
