So spouse got me what I wanted. Of course I told him not to spend a lot but he said that the gift was for him too and he's worth it. Whatever. It works great and now we have music throughout the house. It's amazing how such a small gadget can vibrate the whole building. I don't know why but some songs on the Ipod are naturally louder so we have to be careful about the volume level when it's on shuffle mode.
We went down to the village for dinner. I was perusing the martini menu just looking for a plain one when the waitress arrived to take a cocktail order. So I asked which one she liked and you see those in the picture. I can't remember what all was in them but look at the pretty color. I ended up ordering a burger (with bleu cheese and carmelized onions) and did not have cake.
I got a birthday kiss too. You know birthdays get less and less exciting as you age. I can remember not being able to stand the waiting as a kid and now it's just pretty much another day. In fact, I worked my job which I haven't done on that day in ten years. (since I'm usually off at this time of year) I received 4 cards this year. Two of them had pictures of dogs on the front and two of them had pictures of little boys on the front. I'm not sure what that means but there it is.
Today I'm heading over to the bike rally to wave in the riders. They have ridden from Toronto to Montreal to raise money for aids patient care. I'll take pics and meet a couple bloggers.
