This is the wonderful day of the birth of my honey. HAPPY BIRTHDAY John!
Today I wanted to do something for John on his birthday. Although he doesn't like the fuss he agreed to dinner. He chose Suzi's Cafe which have some awesome ribs. We've never had them but we have seen them from across the cafe on other lucky customers plates. You could probably see them from a mile away considering the size of them! It was definitely something he was looking forward to.
After waking up and opening his present (a handheld GPS for hiking), we skipped breakfast, knowing he had to save room for those humongous ribs. You want to be good and hungry when attempting to devour something that big. So, after hours of starving and weakness setting in, we headed to Suzi's Cafe. At last! It was time to order the RIBS! The wait was painful and long but he knew it would be well worth it. Here they came! A beautiful sight! They were so big that they were hanging off the plate! That waitress must really be strong to carry something so big by herself! It was time to eat! Picking his fork up with all the energy he had left, he started eating, and eating, and eating. About half way through the ribs and a plate of french fries and corn on the cob he was looking miserable , but in a good way. He was done (after dessert that is). He was well satisfied with his birthday dinner!
With restored strength, we headed to the knife shop. I wanted to buy him a good fillet knife for his birthday. As many fish that he fillets he needs a good one! He picked one out and we headed back to the campground.
Just when we thought this birthday couldn't get any better, it did! Walking through the campground, trying to walk off as many calories as we could, we came across some Germans who were camping for the night. On meeting them, I told them that it was John's birthday. Thay all yelled Happy Birthday! With a little suggestion from me, we all sang Happy Birthday in English, but, they also sang Happy Birthday to him in German! "Alles Gute zum Geburtstag" John.... It was really fun! They were great sports and they sounded pretty good! All five of them!
It was a great ending to a special day! Happy Birthday honey, I love you....
