Dinner Out with Jim and June -- Celebrating Jim's 85th Birthday!

Marilyn and I wanted to take Jim -- and his wife June -- out this weekend to celebrate Jim's 85th birthday. You look at his photos and tell me -- he doesn't look 85, does he? Marilyn said he didn't look a day over 70. And I'll buy that! (Marilyn is actually the one to pay, by the way -- not me! She's one of the most generous people I know, so I don't want to sound like I'm taking her credit here...)

We went to the Burrito House to eat -- a fave of Marilyn's and mine (and of June and Jim's, too!). (Jim's actual birthday is February 8.)

Those are Jim's birthday cards from us sitting in front of him (to make for more festive photos). And they make you wear that crazy hat when you come in to celebrate your birthday! Hahahahahaha.

PHOTO SHARE! (Clicking on these will take you to a slightly larger version...)

Not sure WHY LiveJournal puts these all totally out of order. I just didn't have the patience to rearrange them manually... (sigh) The Scrapbook feature used to work a lot better than it does. I guess we're stuck with it! (grin)

That's our waitress -- and her daughter -- by the way! Sweet little girl.

And they bring ice cream for the birthday boy (which Jim shared with June -- and offered to share with all of us). I love the pictures of him with the cherry! Hahahaha.

SORRY about the lousy quality! Frankly, several IOS updates ago for our iPads, Marilyn and I both noticed that photos went to hell. They really used to be quite decent! But we think it's deliberate. They want people to buy newer versions for better photo-taking. Maddening, isn't it? Why take something that used to be GOOD and make it BAD? Well, I'll leave that rant alone now...

I colored my hair (the roots), but was less than satisfied with the (crappy) results. I won't be using REVLON again, for the record. They just don't give you ENOUGH product! I don't feel I should need to buy two or three boxes to get enough to actually cover my roots. I mean, really???

Busy day in front of me -- I need to go and prepare. Work at the office tomorrow... (I have notes I want to type up that I just haven't been able to get to before this... sigh...) So that's it for today!

(And I still need to do my Health Report entry... double-sigh...)
