Surprise Birthday Dinner

We had just finished eating dinner at Surla’s and were walking to our car when Al’s phone rang, and it was our friend Jil.  She said that Rob, an old friend of ours whom we hadn’t seen in about 20 years was in town from Florida, and the next day was his birthday.  She wanted us to meet her at a restaurant in Concord to surprise him at a birthday dinner.  So of course we said that we would.  We got to the restaurant a few minutes early, and were seated at our table.  Jil and Rob walked in, Rob saying that Al didn’t know that he was in California, and that he should give him a call.  Jil was all – whatever!  Then Rob saw us, and he was so surprised!  I have never seen a better surprised look on anyone’s face!  We had a great time, and more-or-less got caught up on the last 20 or so years.  We’re all hoping that we can see each other again before another 20 years passes!

After working all of my life, I retired in June, 2011. I try to use my extra time to rest, exercise, paint my fingernails, play with my 9 cats, spend time with my husband, Al, and cook healthy and lower fat recipies for us to eat. I try to use as many fruits and vegetables in my menus as I can cram in, sometimes to the complaints of the hubs - LOL! I am also making over some of my old favorites to be heathier with more vegetables in them, and less fat.
