     Down to 50 f overnight sure was great for sleeping. Got up around 5:30 consumed coffees and got some computing done. Then headed out down the lane up and around the corner and back here by 8 am. got my first mile done.
heading down the lane heard some noises in the swamp
these guys were pretty noisy
down the road and around the corner following my shadow
           A bit later into Durham for a drive and pick up a couple of things in town. Back to the Ridge and chatted with our good friends and neighbours for a while then a tasty light lunch. Back outside to enjoy our page turners.
nice mural at the main intersection in town
       Stopped by the day use area on the river a pretty nice beach, even a few young guys splashing around early in the morning, it was that warm out.
         Decided to try out a pitcher of Strawberry Beer Margaritas that Suzie suggested, and this in what I whipped together. For that recipe you can click HERE or my recipe blog top right sidebar.
quite tasty and refreshing 
but I liked the beer Margaritas better.

very refreshing and different to toast Rob's birthday 
            Today is a celebration for Rob's 69th birthday, old guy that he is almost as old as me. I made the Margaritas for a toast when everyone was here. We had Rob's daughter, son in Law,  Patsy's sister Donna and Gerry, then Bills cousin Peter , his wife and dog stopped by as well. We had wonderful Happy hours chatting sharing stories and a few laughs.
lots of fun conversation 
      Patsy had made a couple of tasty trays of lasagna , and Pat made a caesar salad and garlic bread, we all had a very tasty feast.

it was a perfect afternoon and a shady spot to enjoy a great meal
with friends
then of course a very tasty desert carrot cake made by Pat,
 with ice cream to top it off.
Supper done , a nice fire to mellow out a bit then
soon we called it a night
     What a wonderful day we enjoyed here with our good friends, celebrating a birthday and a very tasty meal.
