Birthday Suprise

Yesterday I had a wonderful 66th birthday.
First my great husband invited about 15-20 friends to meet us for lunch at El Cafe Del Coyote. Then he let me know what he had done. About 11:30am we arrived and within the next 15 minutes people started showing up. Had lots of laughs and nice cards, Pat Shaver handed me the phone and our nieghbor Sandy Dalziel from Iowa (who winters next door) was singing happy birthday. Then she hands Don 1 more card and he gives it to me and says scoot your chair back against the wall (now doesn't that send shivers down your spine!). When I opened it I found 2 plane tickets to Kona Hawaii for 11-04 08 to 11-11-08 (for those who are not informed 11 11 is our anniversary, this year it will be 48 yrs). Then he gave me an envelope that shows reservations at Keauhou Beach Resosrt on Alii Drive in Kailua-Kona. Needless to say I am VERY EXCITED.
Also recieved a nice package from Patty & Aaron (Margarita Mix, Salt, Guacamole Mix and Chips....Yum Yum) Got calls from Brother Jerry, Sister Melba..but it was a voice mail..and Chris & family.

Don saw doctor yesterday. Doctor was very pleased with his progress. He can now go without the sling at home, lift 25 lbs with both hands, take shower, and is to have physical therapy 3 x wk for 6 wks. Well when we went to make the appointment the company is changing billers and can not accept Medicare patients...this is a company that has 3 offices in Yuma. So got recommendations from friends we know who have used therapy in town and he will be able to start a week from today. (Remember when we were young and were getting recommendations for babysitters not doctors and therapist!)
It is staying about 110 to 114 here during the days. I and two other women use the pool for about an hour (walking/talking/moving) about 9:30a daily. It is usually
80ish by 7am so walking is not really comfortable.
