Saturday was Joe's birthday.  I wanted to make it a special day for him.  I was going to take him out for breakfast, but it was also the day of the Ladies Brunch.  So I ended up giving him breakfast in bed before I hurried off.

I had given Joe his gift earlier in the month.  I got him an air purifier.  He was suffering with his allergies and I thought this would help him.  What a difference it has made!   He is breathing so much better.

Joe got a lot of cards and phone calls all day.  It really made him feel good.


In the evening our friends Carole and Walt took us to Cracker Barrel for dinner.  They even got him a Cracker Barrel gift card for a gift so the dinner was really on them.

Here's the birthday boy!

Cracker Barrel is one of Joe's favorites. 

It was hard to decide what to have.

I was looking at some things in the store after we ate, but everyone was in a hurry to leave, so I didn't get anything.  I do like their clothes though.

I haven't felt all that well today.  I'm so tired.  I fell asleep around 5 p.m. and woke up at 10:30 p.m.  No dinner for me tonight.  I just had a snack so I could take my medicine and I'm going back to sleep.  Hope I feel better tomorrow.

See you then.
