You and the hubbie

Bill, I am still cracking up about the seagulls and should have asked my grandson. He would have told me seagulls and not pigeons Lol. I knew you would tell me to go get those fall photos.

In the past year hubby, Jerry, has gradually gotten somewhat frail with nothing specific but just aging per our doctor. However, we went to the San Manuel casino a week ago and I could hardly get him to leave he was having such a great time.

This is hard to believe, but while at the casino, a 92 year old man tried to push him away from a slot machine just as he was sitting down. I was very near and saw the man as well as a casino employee who came over immediately and called security. Good thing to because Jerry was getting ready to hit him with his cane but I talked him down. After taking a report they escorted the 92 year old out and banned him for a month from the casino. We declined to press charges for assault. The officer told me they permanently banned a 94 year old who choked a man over a machine.

Jerry can't wait to go back LOL

We celebrated his 90th birthday at the end of August with a wonderful surprise party for him at our son's house and our daughter and granddaughter flew in from Georgia.

A few pics from his surprise birthday party.

My daughter, Jerry, and son just before we open the gate for the surprise party

Friends waiting for him to come through the gates with more people in the pool area. I think he was in shock when he saw them all.

Very good friends we have breakfast/lunch with often. In the rear are the cooks from Palacitos tacos. The tacos were delicious (beef, chicken and fish) with all the trimmings including salad, and rice and beans. I brought the Margaritas and they were real good to Lol

Time for cake and it was so good.

My son's good friends from high school and dad.

Thanks for letting me share,


Lovely photographs of your family dear Mina, thank you.

Growing old is inevitable; growing up, however, is optional.
And I have opted out.
