    Good morning everyone. Ksd, guardian, harry, Bondlady2, b1955, DodgerBoy and all, thank you so much for the wonderful birthday wishes! It was a great day! Went to breakfast and had a great view of the Columbia river, all was peaceful, beautiful, and the food was very tasty. Drove some back roads thru the Rattlesnake mountain range, beautiful! Not much traffic yesterday so got to really look see lol. The arboretum was also quiet, so we strolled slowly and enjoyed the smells, the beauty of what was in bloom, little early for most flowers, but some of the trees were in bloom. We walked and sat then walked some more lol. Took in all we could! Then off to Cabelas for our drooling session, enjoy looking at the current hand guns. hahaha. Found a 20 guage flint lock, shorty, really cool to see. Bet it would be a blast to shot it. Hubby bought me a new shirt and shorts, was nice they were on sale for 25% off! Then we headed for Peppermint Stick, a 50's drive in for dinner. Stuffed ourselves with burgers, fries and that rootbeer shake!!! Oh my! Then off to home where we didn't touch the b'day cake hubby made (carrot cake) we were way too full. So today we will enjoy it. YUMMY!!! Was a birthday of complete enjoyment. Thank you all for the wishes, they did come true!
