Jere and Kristen’s new pup, Colt, seems to have a tendon problem and is wearing a cast to stabilize his leg and a neck “tire” to protect the cast from being chewed apart.
He is a bit handicapped, but still enjoys playing with a ball.
Two of the four briskets that Jere is smoking for Cerwin’s birthday party.
We took Jared, Jesse, and Ian along to Shady Maple for Cerwin’s birthday supper.
Shady Maple gives a free meal on your birthday if you come with a partner who buys a regular smorgasbord meal.
During our Christmas supper at the end of last year, our children and grandchildren each made a choice – from a list of places that we would take them for their 2016 birthday. These guys chose Shady Maple, and it suited them to go along on the day of Grandpa’s birthday.
We had so much fun. They loved the many choices of food.
Back at home after the meal – our roadside dogwood tree was displaying great beauty.
The cherry tree behind it was also pretty.
It was a fun 75th birthday for Cerwin – but there was more celebrating to come.
Come back to my blog tomorrow night to see what we did.
