We celebrated my son, Ken’s birthday last night with his favorite cake, home made German Chocolate, and his favorite dinner, home made burritos.
Family traditions differ, for sure, but it was fun to go back in time and fix his favorite dinner. That is, I made the burritos and his wife made the cake; with five candles and the big O.

Funny how a fancy dinner doesn’t appeal, but the old, down home, staple foods are what we enjoy the most. Meaty burritos and refried beans.

Daughter Kristanne always chose for her birthday, chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes and cheesecake.
Ken received a couple really funny cards,  this one from “the dog”

A half century. We talked about age and Ken made an interesting comment; “I’ve never known hunger.” You can be over the hill but if you have never been hungry you are on top of the hill. We are lucky as well as happy to celebrate. Happy Birthdays.

The Big 50!

Jim says:

Yesterday Mary and I went to her oldest son’s home in nearby Henderson to celebrate his 50th birthday.

Mary volunteered to cook his favorite meal…burritos and German chocolate cake.


Ken said as he starts the second half of his life he said he will seek lesser stress whenever possible.

A good time was had by all.
