Bill's birthday today

Wow who would have thought that when I met the brash young soccer player from Argentina that some 50 years later we’d still be together.
He was 28 and I was 26 when we met - lots of water has passed under that bridge now. Today is Bill’s 79th birthday! Not going to make him a cake as he isn’t fond of cakes, but he does like pie crusts - just pie crust with butter, cinnamon, and sugar baked on it. So I’ll fix him a couple. [the frozen kind of course, does any one still have a rolling pin?]
Fixing them will mean trying to guess the temperature of the oven. I did download an owner’s manual from the internet but can only adjust the temperature 30° hotter or cooler - and this oven cooks 75 degrees too hot. Makes for interesting cooking. I think we’re going to have to call a repair man - probably the sensor is bad…
We are finally having perfect weather here. No wind, temperatures in the low 80s, nights into the mid 60s. Couldn’t ask for more.
We took a little outing yesterday, just went to the store for a few things. I sure wore out fast. Need to start walking now that it is nice out. Little by little build my endurance back up again. Start by walking around the park some and maybe work up to the trails behind us in The Wetlands.
We’re talking about going to Mazatlan earlier than we’d originally planned. Maybe in December - come back end of Jan. Checked the mileage yesterday - only 1200 miles from here. Instead of the 2200 it was from Indiana. I’ll just postpone the next surgery until we get back. But we want to wait until hurricane season is over - another one hitting the west coast of Mexico this week.
Started beading again, found a project I’d started a while ago. Going to try to finish it. It is a red, white and blue seed bead necklace. Took me awhile to get back in the rhythm of it. Lot of ripping out at first. Have also been looking at quilt patterns for our new great grand due in December.

Not much else going on. 


  1. Happy birthday Bill. Hope you have a wonderful day.

  2. Happy Birthday Bill and wishing you many, many more.

  3. Bill says Thank you very much and he enjoyed his 39th birthday.

  4. Happy Birthday Bill - hope you have some ice cream to go with the sugar pie. Mom always made them for us when we were kids, Carol. She put brown sugar in the Pie crust, some pats of butter all around and drizzled canned milk over all and topped with cinnamon. Eaten straight from the oven it was a favorite for all of us. You sure brought back some good memories.

  5. Happy belated 39th :) to Bill. Hope you are feeling better.
