If you have to turn 50, do so with great friends!

Phil always laughs at me because I don’t celebrate my birth day, I celebrate an entire week or more. This year I wanted my birthday to be special because I was turning 50, wow! I wasn’t depressed to be turning 50 but rather grateful that I had lived this long.
Phil kicked off my birthday by taking me to Stonehouse for all I could eat crablegs. I managed to eat two pounds. So tasty!

Then Phil took me to ride on the Gateway clipper cruise, and dinner at Houlihans. The cruise was a sunset cruise and it was beautiful watching the sun set on the river and on the bridges.

Debra picked me up early on Thursday morning and we met Sue. They spirited me away to a “secret” location. It turned out to be the Stonewall Jackson Resortin West Virginia.

There was a bottle of wine waiting for me.
