The Jim Bunch Eats Again -- It's Jim's Birthday II
Saturday Billy, Karen, and GC#4 [at the far end of the table] took Mrs. Jim, Mema, and me to Lunch. It was at Candelari's Pizza near their home.
This was my birthday treat from these kids. We all knew it wasn't my birthday but Karen would leave for a week of business meetings in London after lunch.
I ended up with a very nice maroon Nordi golf shirt from our Nordstrom store as a present from them. I always request 'no presents' but everyone just ignores that.
After lunch we dropped Karen off at the George W. Bush Intercontinental Airport on our way home.
We had a very nice visit, as we had come in the morning. We watched some of our Russian river cruise video and visited.
Adi sure was glad to see us. She said goodbye to Billy, Karen, GC#4, and then she came home with us.
Yesterday a couple of our Sunday class groups met for lunch for church yesterday. They had mentioned with the announcements that my birthday would be Monday.
Although the lunch wasn't really for me, I got a lot of Happy Birthday wishes.
Susie has called me to arrange for the rest of the kids to party too. We are thinking it will be this some time week. It's nice to be remembered on your birthday.
In case you are wondering what the lunch was, it was Halloween. The food was Mexican. Halloween Friends Family Food Food+and+Drink Religion+and+Philosophy Pets+and+Animals LifeWe had my favorite vegetable too, pumpkin. I didn't get a picture, but they were pumpkin filled tarts with whipped cream on the top, i.e. miniature pumpkin pies.
Your celebrations look so much fun. You all know how to celebrate in style.
Wishing you a very Happy Birthday.
Don't let them give you the bumps though.
Take care xx

to have gone well.Thanks also for your visit.
Is that what you really meant?
[Usage example: “she was looking at his bump”.]
Maybe better would be the Irish for 'birthday bumps' that Google found? It says:
"Ireland - Birthday Bumps. The birthday child is lifted upside down and "bumped" on the floor for good luck. The number of bumps given is the age of the ..."
Have a smashing birtday Jim!!
Do you know there are 12million calories in a sundae (maybe a little overstated) but hey it's so yummy (burp oops! ate too much).
