Happy Birthday Tim!

July 19, 2011
Colorado, USA

Happy Birthday Tim!It is your birthday... I say we roll out of the drive with an attitude that delivers on the happy part.
A happy person is not a person in a certain set of circumstances, but rather a person with a certain set of attitudes.
Tim's day so far = SOGGY: We had coffee on the patio where he opened his gift from me and his card from Mom. Earlier, he read the well wishes from friends in his email. After coffee, I loaded up the Harley-Davidson branded cooler (his gift from me) with picnic food (fried chicken, macaroni salad, watermelon, fresh cherries, animal crackers, even a tiny cherry pie, and lemonade). We rode east (away from the clouds building over the foothills). Rolling into a little township about 30 miles east of here called Eaton, we found the City Park and a picnic table.

We sat the food out and had about two bites when the sprinklers came on and before we could get anything moved or covered, water had drenched our table, the food, the camera, cell phone, us and even the motorcycle parked in the street. !!^%$&^#&^@!! I mean, four jet sprinklers were aimed at the table we chose. Ha! Who waters a park with picnic tables at noon when the facilities are most likely to see use? That's the question I asked the city manager of Eaton when I emailed them just a short while ago, just one of a few choice remarks I had for him...

Tim - Birthday 2011I snapped this pic with my phone just before we dug in -- a few minutes later -- we were drenched.

Anyway, we dumped our soggy chicken plates in the trash and rolled out of Eaton toward home. We took the long way home, blow-drying ourselves along the way. We had our picnic anyway -- here at the house -- as there was enough leftover chicken and salad and other goodies on hand. A couple of slices of cherry cream pie sent the man off to work with a smile.
