Anyway....a lady yelled "he's got a gun!" i looked at her and said, lady everyone here has a gun, you just can't see them. Bob (yeah cowboy bob, i know), is a rancher. Everyone else just shook their heads and chuckled. She got in her audi with, well license plates from a state west of here, and left.


Today's entertainment. I'm going fishing.
lol!!

Well I am now officially retired. Officer Clark transitioned into "semi-retirement" last September, but since the beginning of this summer I am now fully retired.


I bought a new car ... a Hyundai. I took a couple of road trips in my new car. With a buddy I took a few weeks driving down south to Miami via Norfolk, Charleston, Savannah, and St. Augustine. On the way back we went a different way: through northern Georgia, the Blue Ridge Parkway, the Shenandoah, etc. It was a great trip. My buddy, an attorney who also just retired this year, was something of a nag though (a motorcyclist, he always wanted me to go faster even though I was exceeding the speed limit).

What model Hyundai did you get? I am considering, maybe, the Kona.

This afternoon myself and the 2 guys went to see the TCM 50th Anniversary presentation of "Hello Dolly" at the theater. It is playing at theaters all over the U.S. this week only. If you have a chance (and like the old musicals), GO!

I had a wonderful birthday (66th) yesterday. Went to brunch in Evergreen (Colorado) and it was cool, and it actually sprinkled a bit! Then we walked around that small, quaint and old town, and my husband bought some earrings for me that I saw and liked very much. Then we came home and did a few errands (and the weather stayed cool!), and then he fixed an excellent steak dinner for us with a very good Napa Cab and then watched an old movie we haven't seen in decades ("The Halleleujah Trail' with Burt Lancaster and Lee Remick), which was fun; and then we walked our dog, and then had German chocolate cake and chocolate chip ice cream and my husband sang "Happy Birthday" to me.

It was honestly the best birthday that I have EVER had that I remember -- and if this is what being over 65 will be like, I will have NO complaints whatsoever!

Glad to hear that you had such a nice day for your birthday. The Hallelujah Trail is one of my favorite fun movies to watch. Every few years if we see it coming on TV, we just pop some popcorn and sit back and laugh.

Katharsis, If I'd had a husband like that, I would never have gotten divorced.

Happy birthday.
