Well 60 Isn’t All That Bad

I was lucky enough to spend my 60th DSC_0310[2]birthday on Saturday with good friends.  We had planned a river cruise on the Rio Grande and it turned out to be a beautiful day…

It was a two hour cruise and we saw lots of action along the way.. The cruise takes you along the Mexican border and we could see Border Control busy at something.

Here you see the paths that have taken some of the illegals out to the river, where they cross when they have the chance.

When the cruise ended we headed into the restaurant for lunch.

When lunch ended we headed back to our place to have cake and ice cream.. Kevin forgot to get candles so he improvised with matches.

Poof, there was quite a flame, but I managed to get my wish in, before we started a fire!

We relaxed and once again enjoyed each other’s company…Texas Winter 2010 019

I always thought 60 was OLD but I was reminded in chat one evening that 60 is the new 40…Now I like that!!

Thanks to all of you my friends, for helping me celebrate!!!!
