Henry’s Birthday

Henry celebrated his birthday a few weeks ago and has we have done often over the years, we celebrated with our friends Lorne and Nicole.

Nicole’s birthday is just a few weeks later than Henry’s and they are the same age. . .

So how do four middle aged friends paint the town red?

They hit Chapters when they discover the wait for a table at The Keg is over an hour.

Good thing Chapters was right next door . . .



Guess who left with a new book? hint . . . it wasn’t Nicole . . .


A little over an hour later we were ushered to our table.


Henry didn’t think I smiled wide enough . . .


Middle age has a few challenges. Reading the fine print in a menu is one of them . . .

It was no challenge to decide what to order . . . I love prime rib!


Can you believe I ate everything on this plate?!!

And then found room to share a creme brulee with Nicole???


Of course neither of us even considered this dessert.


We left that to the men!

It was such a lovely treat to dress up like a normal person and enjoy an evening out with friends.

Of course, Nicole ended up with my foot in her lap by the end of the evening as I couldn’t leave it down any longer, but . . . isn’t that what friends are for?
