Thank you all for the birthday wishes and cards!
(wishes both here and on my FaceBook)

My birthday celebrating started last night with these seven friends, Dick, Dot, Mrs. Jim, Liz, Walter, Faith, and Stan.  We were playing Texas 42's, a domino game that involves bidding and making the bid.

We were at Dick and Dot's home and Dot had made me a caramel cake with strawberries baked into the top.  It was served with Blue Bell vanilla ice cream.

Mrs. Jim had sneaked two of the ten candles to be the kind that one couldn't blow out easily.  I finally got them out.  This is a not a very good picture of me.  I suppose it might be what I look like.

My cake has ten candles.  I won't tell my age on-line but my birthday is multiple of the number of candles.  At the right is my score card.  I was the winner for the night.  49 is a perfect score, mine was 43.

Trivia:  Ms. Liz also plays golf.  Better still, she once had two holes-in-one on the same day.

Today we will meet with some of the family for supper at our Papadeaux Seafood Kitchen restaurant.  Eight of us will be there which is just under half of the Houston area family.  Tomorrow night we will attend the University of Houston/South Florida football game.  It will be played at the  Stadium and will be on ESPN Television network.

We had over three inches of rain this morning.  These are a couple of pictures I took this morning from our back porch showing all of the water collecting on the golf course.  It is supposed to rain a lot more late tonight, then subside by early evening tomorrow. 
Time will be early enough for a safe drive into Houston, we are hoping.
