Gratitude Monday - You Asked For It Edition


Some of you, at least two, let it be known in the comments patch that you wanted to see a photo of Mike and me at our simple dinner out for my 50th birthday on Saturday.
I am grateful that you asked, and grateful that we managed to get a photo of ourselves that was adequate.
Dinner was very good. We made happy hogs of ourselves and I went to heaven on the sticky toffee pudding at dessert. I'm grateful for that, too.

Hope you had an amazing birthday! Sorry I didn't stop by this weekend - I was offline hiding from the sex noises :0)

Sticky toffee pudding is my favourite too, did you have it with icecream, did you did you?

Happy birthday!

Two totally gratified and well fed seniors. :) It doesn't get any better than that.

Tokaiangel, thanks for the birthday wishes. And yes! French vanilla ice cream. A beautiful moment in eating. Sadly there wasn't enough ice cream. One little scoop. That's barely a start.

Tom, you got that right.
