A Birthday Celebration
Chuck arrived Thursday night to help Beverly celebrate her birthday. We always enjoy when he comes to visit. Yesterday was Bev's 79th birthday and we spent most of the day together. She has been stressing over the fact that she was turning 79 but we had to remind her of the alternative and that it is just a number. We went out for bagels in the morning. Beverly and Chuck had never been to the Clark County Historical Museum so we took them there and enjoyed the exhibits on the I-5 bridge and women's equality. After that, we traveled a few blocks to go to a winery that we hadn't visited yet. Gouger Cellars has a small corner of a building that is also used for people to store their wine at the perfect temperature. We enjoyed the wine tasting and conversation with the owners. Then we got Thai takeout for dinner, enjoyed a chocolate torte cake and watched Alfred Hitchcock's movie, "The Man Who Knew Too Much." Tom leaves today to go back to school. Chuck leaves in the morning. So we will be back to relatively normal routines again. Although I officially start my new job tomorrow so that will be a bit of a change for me--hopefully a good one--and Beverly is having a cardiac catheterization procedure on Wednesday so I will need to take care of her afterward and spend the night with her. Please pray that everything goes well and that she doesn't need any further surgery. We are hoping she doesn't need open heart surgery. We were so grateful she didn't need to have it a few years ago and hope she doesn't need it now as well.
