As some of you know, John's birthday is 1/12 and Linda's birthday is 1/14. This year, with John's birthday on a Saturday it created a perfect Birthday Weekend.
John spent Saturday in front of the television watching the NFL playoffs hoping Seattle would go to the Super Bowl, but it won't be this year. John also had one of his favorite dinners-pizza. Sunday was more football, but included a nice visit with Linda's sister Donna. The day was topped off with a great family dinner with Lois, Matt, & Suzanne at a great Chinese restaurant P.F. Chang's. The food & the company was outstanding. Everyone tried all of the dishes that was ordered. Linda even tried some of John's salmon!
Monday was Linda's day. She had her choice to do whatever she wanted to do. I mentioned Disneyland, shopping, a visit to the beach, etc. She decided she wanted to wash the motorhome! Well it was dirty, but still. . . . but the motorhome does look great. We finished the day with another great dinner. Linda's Mom, Lois, took us to a new to us restaurant, The California Cafe in Whittier. It served good old fashioned comfort food. Linda & Lois had Pot Roast, while John had Baby Back Ribs. The food was great.
On Tuesday Linda got her hair done, and then we headed to Laguna Woods to visit John's mother. We had a great dinner at Don Jose, then we went back to Betty's house to visit and work with her on her new computer she got for Christmas. She now has high speed access instead of dial up. It should make it easier to view photos on the web, so expect an increase in email from her. Hopefully she won't get hooked on Ebay.
We also had many phone calls and cards from the rest of our family and friends, including a special call from our daughter, Jeni, from Clemson, SC. We sure miss her on these special occasions. Next year will be a special birthday for Linda so I'll have to come up with something better than washing the motorhome. Keep checking back to see what I come up with.
