Thanks everyone. It didn't even occur to me that Cassie might make a cake but I smelled one in the oven late last night. We plan to go out to dinner tonight. I want to go to Fiorella's Jack Stack if it isn't too busy. Last year there was a line out the door and we went to a Mexican place instead. Maybe a Tuesday night crowd will be smaller.

Try to get there around 3:30 pm.

Not only are the lines shorter, but you also get to buy from the 'Early Bird' menu.....

(only oldsters know of these things.....)

lol

Here is a picture of the cake Cassie made.  When we got home from the restaurant, the whole family was there for a surprise party. The knife, carrots, mushrooms, spoon, everything except the cake were made of fondant and was edible.

That cake is gorgeous. And....70???? You don't look 70. What is your secret for looking younger? You share your recipes so you should share this secret, too.

Tell Cassie I said "FABULOUS JOB" !!

How nice of them to surprise you. Did you get to go to the steak house you wanted to?

Beth, Cassie called Jack Stack BBQ around 6:30 just before Charlie got home and they said there was about an hour to hour and a half wait and they didn't take reservations.  We decided to go to Cheesecake Factory but there was a long wait there too so we went to our favorite Korean place.  It turned out to be the first day under new ownership with a new menu but everything was still good. It was one of those places where the meat is brought raw and you cook it at the table. It was busy too but there was no waiting to get in.

As to age, I wish I knew.  I'd bottle it and sell it. It isn't due to a healthy lifestyle.   When I was young, I was always the one they carded in bars so when I got older, I thought I'd have to start showing my ID again but people started giving me senior discounts without my even asking.  Once in KFC the girl gave me a senior discount and I asked how old do you have to be to get that?  She shrugged and said "Well you just look old."

I got a senior discount when I was 40. I wanted to crawl in a hole and pull it in after me.

Cassie is a server at a restaurant. One of the older ladies who works there told her that if someone gives her a hard time, she gives them a senior discount.

Happy Birthday Norm.
God bless you!
I'm just a few months behind you.... haaaaa

I said to Tina... the other day,.." xxit , We have all this serious senior stuff from having your 90 year old Uncle here with us, so we won't have to want for walkers and canes, and bath chairs, and toilet lifts!" ... We are all set for the Last Journey of our lives!

We got a collection of 5 magnifying reading glasses too.

Daughter Maria calls on the phone, and asks, "Hey Dad, how's it going over there at "Shady Pines"???

LOL LOL.... Oh! Dear Lord Help us!

At the local IHOP Wednesdays is senior discount day. Tina and I went for breakfast, and the girl at the register said,"Oh Senior discount sir?"
I had no clue, but said,"I Guess" while Tina was kicking my leg.
The bill was 10 something, and I got 1/2 off.

I think it's nice when places give you a straight up discount for whatever you have.  Some places limit the discount to a few items on the menu and if you want something else, too bad, and some places are rip offs by offering a senior menu that is just smaller servings and not a lot cheaper.
