Milestone Birthday

A few weeks ago I had a milestone birthday and I don't feel or act my age at all! My college roommate and I continue to be friends even though she is on the east coast and we have not seen each other in a long time. She sent me some great socks...


Also in the box was a stuffed rabbit dog toy for Miss Maddie - her birthday is Oct. 25, but I gave it to her early...

Last but not least, my brother visited me from California. We spent a very nice 5 days togeter. First stop was a burger from Sonic...

We also visited the Denver Mint (no cameras allowed) and Buffalo Bill's Grave and Museum up on Lookout Mountain. It was a bit cloudy so the view was limited, we went for lunch at the nearby Cody Inn (Buffalo Burgers for everyone) and then went back to the museum. Enough clouds had cleared we could see the mountains, the Coors Brewery, the Table Tops and a little bit of downtown Denver. Still too misty to see much of the plains. We headed a bit west to see if the Buffalo herd was visible, but they were no where in sight. While he was here, we also checked out a few antique shops in town, ate at some nice restaurants and generally just hung out together. We did play Farmville at the same time on seperate computers and he was able to instantly give me stuff I needed, cause I was right there on-line. That about covers it for now!

Hey, Mary, you didn't mention the birthday gift so I thought you might not have liked it. Now I know differently. Maddie looks pretty happy with the rabbit too.

Looks like you had a nice milestone birthday.

Sandra: For some reason I have been very bad about getting my thank yous out. The gifts were great, thanks.

Congratulations on such a wonderful milestone. I love the 50's although I am reaching near the end of them. I feel that life has been very good these last few years. My wish for you is that you have such wonderful times too.
Love love love Denver. We have good friends there and stop on our way to AZ often.
