A Very Good Day

Rantoul, IL.

39 deg. clear, no wind.

Forecast = High temp. 72 deg. sunny, SW wind @ 10 to 20 mph.


First of all, Jim would like to thank all of you that sent Jim birthday wishes yesterday. He enjoyed reading every one of your comments and e-mails. : )

Jim didn't do a lot yesterday. It was pretty windy and as many of you know, he doesn't much like being outside when it's windy. So, he surfed the Internet, watched some TV, sorted thorough some papers that he had accumulated on our trip out west, and took a nice long nap in the afternoon.

Mike, (Jim's Son), called from Apex, NC to wish him a Happy Birthday and to talk awhile. While they were talking, Jim told Mike that we should be getting there on or about the 3rd of October for a 2 week visit. Mike said that time period would work out great for them and that he, Gina and the kids are looking forward  to our visit. : )

About 4:30, Jim and Linda took CLT and headed down to Urbana where they went to to the Farm & Fleet store. Jim needed some new jeans and they've usually got a pretty good price on them. After purchasing a couple pairs, (they were even on sale), they headed over to an Outback Steakhouse in Champaign for dinner.

You see, a couple weeks ago, Jim was going through a drawer and found an Outback Steakhouse gift card that he and Linda had received, probably way back in December for Christmas. So, it was decided that they would use it for Jim's birthday dinner.

Neither Jim or Linda had ever been to an Outback before. Jim said that he thought that there was a little too much seasoning on his steak, but they both enjoyed the meal and the service was excellent.

After returning back here, they watched TV until the news was over and then went to bed.

Jim said that he had a very good day!! : )

A Point to Ponder : You know you're getting old when you are cautioned to slow down by the doctor instead of the police.
