1:1

Last night we had a nice little neighborhood get-to-gether.  Nothing planed, just as spontaneous as most of them.  It was real nice.  Lots of laughs, good food, great company.
Today we went to see Anna play soccer.  Great game!  The weather was prefect too, good enough to sit outside on Debby's deck for a little while.  It's time for the warmer weather to begin.

Atlantic City

As you know from prior posts, my Mom's (R.I.P.) birthday was April 11th.  She was born 1918 and this year she would have been 94 years old.  I truly miss her so much and and which that I would have told her that I loved her more often when she was alive.
Anyway, every April 11th, ever since mom passed away, Tammy, Chrissy and I celebrate her birthday in Atlantic City.  My Mom loved gambling (a little too much) and this is how we honor her and celebrate her life.  Dinner, a toast, and a few Dollars for the sake of gambling.  When Mom was alive, I hated to take her to A.C., because I personally do not like to spend my hard earned money in the slots.  I must say though, I do enjoy going every year.  Unfortunately, this year we had to delay it by two weeks, because of Peter's health problem.  I am sure my mother would have agreed that the health comes first.
Below are pictures from the inside of the new casino, called 'Revel'.  Check out the huge pink ceiling lamp.  It was very nice, but there were no restaurant that we were interested in.  So we left there and went to the Tropicana.  We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at P.F. Chang's, followed by a stroll through the store that were in the casino and then we hit the machines.....some gamblers we were......at the Penny slot.  I put in my (planed) $20 bill and gambled away...half an hour later I was down to $10.23 and that was the end of my big gambling night.  We were home about 11:30 pm and now we just have to wait until next April 11th.

In the 80ties...

Sunday - April - 80ties....life is good.  We sat outside and enjoyed the beautiful weather.  Deb and Wayne came over for a daily walk with their pooches and invited Kia for a play-date. Kia was welcomed by her new friends and enjoyed the visit tremendously.  It is not very often that Kia can run around without a leash.

Just a little update….

We had a quiet Easter weekend.  For dinner we went to Jay’s Tiffany Northside restaurant.  It was good and plenty and reasonable.  Back at the RV we sat outside and I got a shot of our little visitor, the Bluebird.
