Party Pics and a nice relaxing Sunday, perfect.

Where are we today ?
        As I left off with last nights posting we were going to a surprise 50th Birthday Party for a good friend Ben. And Yes I did take a whole mess of pictures of the fun we had.
        It was at the Legion in Town and it was a surprise for him. A good turn out around 100 people were there and we all had a great time.
Cinco de Mayo (May 5th is his birthday)
       The Mexican theme worked out very well. The music, the costumes, the food really a lot of fun.
of course chips and salsa
Tacos, refried beans and more
       No margaritas though, not even Mexican beer after all the bar was the Canadian Legion.
That be the birthday boy and Darla,
Mexican Hat dance
         Then the piñatas always a lot of fun. There was 2, one for him and one for her.
he did a good job
she did too
         Now the Happy couple come to chat with us for a bit, she looks wonderful with the long black wig, they played the part perfect !
Darla and Suzie grew up together, way back when
of course we had to have some birthday cake too
         On yesterday's comments did I have a margarita hangover?  Nope, number one, no margaritas and number two I did my new standard 2 beer then switch to N/A 0.5 % alcohol and only 50 calories.
      We had a good time, visit with some old friends and got home way too late (around 11:30). No dancing just a lot of socializing and was really, really a great evening.
       Then this morning my early morning country drive to Plattsville, shot the breeze with the guys for a bit. A wonderful bright sunny morning , blue skies and fluffy white clouds.
great start for a Sunday
These guys out for a Sunday morning ride,
stop for Breakfast somewhere
        After here cruised around town and saw a good friend out on his front yard, stopped to chat and joined him and the family for a nice coffee and catchup conversation, last summer was the last time we saw them.
         Back home for lunch with Suzie, then a ran a few errands and was thinking a walkabout, but was now overcast and a bit breezy and energy levels were drained after a late night. so We did get a chance to enjoy our e-readers for a nice relaxing Sunday afternoon. Its been a while for sure.
         Now I can whip up supper tonight and Wild Pacific Cod Fillets on the menu, pan fried in cocnut oil lightly coated with fish crisp. And of course a tasty salad, did the trick.
very tasty
       There ya go another day gone whipping on by and a good one it was.
       Thanks for stopping by and hope your Sunday was a great one too!
