My Birthday on a long weekend, gotta love it can celebrate all weekend, along with the rest of Canada.

Where are we today ?

        Heck today is my Birthday made it through another wonderful year, and all of Canada gets a long weekend just for my birthday, (ok it is Victory Day weekend, and I am not QueenVictoria, she is dead and I am still alive, King George maybe?). It is also known as the May 24, (24th of May) or could be the first good camping weekend where Canadians take a 24 of beer camping. Hmmm. What to do? I know what to do enjoy this wonderful sunny weather and another birthday.
       Well no matter what, it is my Birthday today 68 years old. Heck I thought 40 years old was old now 68? How did I ever live this long? Never thought this would happen, no complaints I am still upright and breathing, feel wonderful and think I am in relatively good shape. Somebody is on my side I think.
       At noon today neighbour Brian came over with a beer for me to begin celebrating and I enjoyed it with him . Thanks Brian much appreciated!
the Coor's Light for me
just cause it is a light beer
     This morning right behind us the park had a  "Junk In your trunk sale"  (yard sale) so I took a few things to get rid of (free) and picked up 3 dvd's for 5 bucks, a box of Girls guide cookies, and an almost new tripod for our satellite dish free. Thanks for the tripod Ron and Lorrie.
lots a stuff set up here sold fast
Monique with her photos and more
nice tripod, our other 11 year old one was in rough shape 
Original Girl guide cookies, yummy
lotsa kids in the playgrounds
everyone outside today enjoying this warm weather 
my trivet I use for cooling the baking
and on our Weber Q
        Did get up to70f  (21C) sunny and some breeze but nice enough for shorts most of the afternoon. Yup I can take this weather no problem. Chatted with a few people we know here and there. You do meet people when you are out and about all day, nice to catch up with them once in a while. And so many people wished me Happy Birthday even people I did not know, (small campground stuff ya know)
       3:30 good friends Gail, Randy and Hailey dropped by for a visit, have not seen them for 2 years now. Nice to catch up with them again. Emile, Monique, Paul and Judy joined us as well. Got wished happy birthday again a few times more and just had a fun time all day long.
nice catching up with more friends 
Hailey is such a beautiful dog
      About 4:30 I put one of our small pork loin roasts on that I had marinaded for 24 hours with some nice rub and spices. Set on our trivet covered with foil and let the Weber do its stuff, on about medium heat for 80 minutes until internal temp about 160f.. A nice glaze on the outside sealed in the juices and so moist and tender.
done perfectly
Added to our salad and some applesauce
 was so very tasty
      The wagon rides are heading around the park once again this year, and they actually filled the wagon 3 times. We have done this quite a few times with the grands, but they not here so will leave it for the young families to enjoy.
3 wagon loads tonight a good turnout
        Our friends Bill and Nancy up the road invited us for a campfire tonight, but just when he got it going it began with a light rain, so that was kind of a wash out. Maybe tomorrow. 
         Then at 8 pm a band started playing in clubhouse called Mud Creek. We went down for a while thought it was supposed to be country, but too loud inside for us, could not make out what they were playing, oh well they try. Lotsa young kids on the floor running around enjoying the music so they had lotsa fun.
         Now back home shortly after 9 finish up this posting, watch the tube for a bit and relax. For me it was a perfect day. Great weather, chat with friends, heard from my kids and spend time with my honey. Works for me. Just so glad that we can enjoy this lifestyle doing what we love.
       Thanks for stopping on by and hope you had a wonderfully as well.
