A fabulous birthday!

Today was my birthday. It was a big one...... the big 65! Actually, though, I don't feel any older or any different than yesterday.......except that I had a great day today. Got lots of cards, phone calls and good wishes from family and friends. Talked to my kids, Collette and Devlin, and then my husband surprised me with this......

I thought it was Christmas! There were two wrapped packages on the kitchen table this morning along with that envelope. He rummaged through my Christmas stuff to find the gift wrap. LOL!  I was expecting the envelope because my birthday request was for some "green stuff", you know......cash. ;-)  But when I opened the envelope, there was some "green stuff" but there was also a card. And he made the card!! Oh, my goodness, was I surprised! He had me unwrap the thickest package which I thought was a box of chocolates. I was sure the other one was a paperback book. Nope! I was wrong on both counts. It was this......

It's a Google Nexus 7, my very own tablet!! And the second package contained a case for it! I was really surprised. I've most of the day playing with it and reading Facebook posts. Did take time out to watch a good movie this afternoon........"Stars in my Crown" starring Joel McCrea. It's a great film from 1950. My husband set it up for me to watch but after watching a few minutes of it, he was "caught". There were lots of well-known actors from TV and the movies that we both recognized. If you've never seen the movie, check it out. It's a good one!
We had some pizza for supper. Last year on my birthday, we ordered pizza and it wasn't all that great and it was expensive. Today, Steve picked up a DiGiorno pizza for $7 at Wagar's Grocery and it was really good! We'd both try it again. :-)
Just as I was wiping off the kitchen counters, my friend, Sue, called and said she had a little something she'd made for me for my birthday. I was to just wait for her to place it by the door. Well, I got excited and met her on the porch and look what she surprised me with.......

FIRECRACKERS!!!

Aren't these cute? She saw something similar on Pinterest so she got some logs and painted up this trio for me because she knows I like patriotic things! Tomorrow we're going for lunch so the celebrating will continue.  :-)
That's all for now. Starting next Monday........."What's on the Line?" will return! In the meantime, I'll be back tomorrow with a little news about some wooly projects.......
Back soon.......
