51 !

Home Turf, Site; Driveway
Rockwall, Texas
Weather Condition; High 78, Low 63,

I turned  "51" today. How did that happen? It hasn't been that long ago that I learned how to ride a bike. Hasn't been that long ago since I learned to drive a car! Well it hasn't been that long ago that I learned to pull a fifth wheel!

I had a great birthday. The weather was beautiful. Dawn put together a shrimp boil for lunch. She puts shrimp, sausage, corn, onion and new potatoes in a large pot and cooks it up. She also made gumbo with chicken, sausage and shrimp.

We just took over Lisa's house and had a party on her patio. The neighbors (Stevenson's) had lunch with us.
The Stevenson's also have November birthdays so it was one big birthday lunch. 

For dessert she made key lime pie, cracker pie and she bought a chocolate cake.

 I really enjoyed the desserts!

Needless to say, everyone was stuffed to the gills after lunch.

It's great having wonderful friends to enjoy these kind of celebrations with.
