Happy Birthday Baby Buddy

Today Carol, my buddy, turned %$#&! years old.  Her choice of breakfast this morning was Denny’s Restaurant.  Denny & Susie came along with us.  Carol like’s her Belgian waffle with strawberries and whipped cream.  After showing the waitress her ID her breakfast was free ($6.49 credit).  Now that was something.  When we returned we visited Mark.  It was the meeting of the minds or at least a meeting.SDC12299

Later that day Denny & Susie had a Birthday Party for Carol.  It was a lot of fun.  Whenever someone would show up everybody sung Happy Birthday to her – again and again.  Susie cooked pizza for everyone and then we had cake & ice cream. Carol was in her glory.DSC_0002 DSC_0005

When the sun went down everybody moved inside to the warm house.  During the evening we got entertained by Mark’s famous Scottish song.  He had to be asked only once.DSC_0006 DSC_0007

The evening was over by 7 PM (Walt’s bed time).

Patches our cat has been staying at the local vet due not eating/drinking/lost of weight.  The vet said she was doing better and we could pick her up tomorrow.  She was looking/acting pretty bad beforehand and hopefully she has recovered fully.  We had our doubts there for awhile.

Denny & Susie leave their MiFi on overnight so I can get this blog out.  They know I have a tendency to do it in the middle of the night.  Thank you…

I’m in the middle of fighting a losing battle with Verizon about their bait & switch offers.  This concerns their plan for a 2 GB MiFi for $30 a month.  They have advertising at their stores that says it’s available during the 2011/2012 winter.  When you call them they say they only have the 5 GB for $50.  That my friends is called bait and switch by anyone’s definition except theirs. Hey, I’m letting them know what I think.  I’m suppose to get a call tomorrow from some Verizon muck a muck person.  Let’s see how concerned they are really about keeping to their advertising.

See ya………..
