Great Weekend

I am happy to announce that I made the transition into my fifties with little, to no effort.

I took the day off Friday. We were up early and drove a friend to the airport. At noon I had an appointment at the salon to get a temp. Now I am a kinky fifty year old! My hair dressers birthday is Monday so Dawn bought pizza and we had lunch together.

Friday night Dawn made reservations for us at the Old Warsaw. It is a wonderful old restaurant in the heart of uptown Dallas. We like to eat there on special occasions.

Dinner was great. I had the Asparagus soup, Jumbo Lump Crab cake, Grilled Filet Mignon topped with crab meat, Garlic Mashed Potatoes and green beans for dessert we both had the chocolate Soufflé drenched in a chocolate sauce. Wow, we were so stuffed by the time we got out of there.

Saturday we had a few errands to run and a trip to the grocery store. Dawn had arranged for a few friends and family members to have dinner together at our favorite Mexican food restaurant. That was a lot of FUN. There was about twenty of us all together.

Sunday I took the gift cards and the cash I got for my birthday and went to Lowes. We have been looking at the electric fireplaces for the fifth wheel. The one we really like that would fit perfect in the desk area cut-out just didn’t put out enough heat. After much debate we decided to go with the Duraflame electric stove. It is the lightweight and comes with remote control. We are happy with the amount of heat it puts out.

We couldn’t wait to put it in the fifth wheel. Speaking of the fifth wheel, a friend of ours stopped by on Sunday. While we were standing outside talking he mentioned that the rear tires on the truck looked like they were too close together. We took a closer look and he was right. The rear tires are so close together you can hardly see daylight between them. The problem is when we hook onto the fifth wheel the tires are going to squat and at that point they will be touching. This is NOT a good thing!

We sold the last curio cabinet too. We had a guy come by and look at it Sunday afternoon and his mover came by Sunday night and picked it up.

Dawn went back to the tire store this morning all geared up to argue with the salesman about the dilemma with the tires. She was pleasantly surprised when the salesman told her that he tried to tell the other salesman that he didn’t think those tires would work. He said he thought the tires were too wide. He was right and he changed them out with no problem. Lesson learned!

  1. Your birthday dinner out sounded just too good! The dessert sounded terrific!

    Good catch on those tires before anything bad happened! I wonder what in the heck the first salesman was thinking?

    You'll love the fireplace in your 5'er.

  3. I like your hair. You also don't look like you've reached half a century. Are you going to post pictures of the new fireplace? I looked at a "green" fifth wheel over the weekend and posted pictures on my blog, if you're interested.

  4. Lucky break with the tires. That first salesman should get the ax. He could have caused a lot of problems for you.
