Heinz 57

Hey Yo:

I love Ketchup...  Love it on and/or with a lot of different foods.  But, and this is a very huge BUT: not just any Ketchup.  There is only one Ketchup as far as I am concerned.  And that would be Heinz 57Period.  All others need not apply.  The taste/flavor of the 'pretenders' just never comes close to the 'real deal.' 

Quite Simply...  It Is Like No Other
And that brings me to my point:  57...  My "Little Bride" had a Birthday this week.

 
And quite simply, SHE is "Like No Other."  Although the 'number' keeps getting higher and higher each year you know: older, my Woman keeps getting better and better, like a 'Fine Wine.'  And she's all about a "Fine Wine."  (albeit, in the proper stemware... but, that's another story) 

After going to the Easter Church Service on Saturday night, her celebration began last Sunday, the 20th, as we drove to our HER favorite Casino in Lake Charles for the day.  Anytime we come home with more money than we took to begin with, well, that is considered a really good day.  And we absolutely had a really Good Day.  Happy Birthday, Baby.

On Wednesday, the 23rd, (her actual birthday) her two Daughters, Lauren and Sami, took her to dinner (their treat) and on to a Wine Bar for much needed Mother-Daughter time.  No Dude's allowed.  And to quote Donna:  "We had a really good time, we drank wine, we laughed...  it was a Dream Come True."  They had a really Good NightHappy Birthday, Baby.

***So good in fact, that Thursday was "RECOVERY DAY" for her***
BUT NOT SO BAD THAT A LITTLE ICE CREAM COULDN'T HELP CURE

His (on the left) & Hers (on the right)
 

Today, the 25th, is Happy Friday and that always means hangin' at our favorite Mexican Cantina, Lupe Tortilla.  The celebration will continue.  I know we will have a really Good TimeHappy Birthday, Baby.

Tomorrow, the 26th, we are meeting Kenneth Earl and Pat at Top Golf, a NEW and HOT, as well as innovative, driving range, where several types of 'Target Golf' games can be played.  Afterwards, dinner and libations.  We are looking forward to having fun times with Good FriendsHappy Birthday, Baby.

And finally, I'm kinda, sorta, thinking that Sunday, the 27th, will be a "day of rest."  And that will be a Good ThingHappy Birthday, Baby.

My Parting Music:  This week, I have two songs in mind, both as a Tribute to my "Little Bride," her Special Week, and my feelings for her.  Happy Birthday, Baby

#1:  First, Adele with a very special song...  Love Song  Enjoy...

 
#2:  And then, a Tim McGraw tune that says it all:  My Best Friend  Enjoy...

And so, that was a glimpse of Birthday Week for Donna, as we do it (at least for her).  I appreciate your visit.  I hope to see you back next time.  Til then...

Be safe, be smart, and always show your Smile...  It's Happy Friday

adios... vaya con dios

    My birthday is Friday...so birthday fun all around!
    Tell your wife a happy one from me!

    1. Jen... I am truly so glad you "popped by." A very nice surprise. We did have a great week. And here is hoping Birthday Week for the two of you is a blast as well.

      I recently "popped by" your place as well to check out the last Mix Tape and was immediately distracted by your "outside I'm a hippie freak-show" Post. What a truly beautiful Post. So glad I read it.

      Thanks so much for the visit. Always brings a smile, Slu
