A Day in a Year in a Life / Day 242

30/August/2015, Day 242.  Sunday.

Happy birthday to Sweetie!
Happy birthday to Sweetie!
Happy birthday dearest Sweetie,
Happy birthday to you!

Yep, today was Sweetie's birthday.  We celebrated by having dinner at one of her favorite restaurants, (and Lola's absolute favorite restaurant), the wonderful Taki.  Grump and Sweetie split a "Love Boat" sushi platter, Kuya had some hibachi salmon, and Lola had her favorite, shrimp tempura.  Yummy, yummy, yummy!

That was the highlight of the day.  We had hoped it would hold off raining so we could finally go to Callaway Gardens, (we had planned on going yesterday, but got rained out), but the rain came again today, pouring down in the early morning.

After lunch things had dried up a bit, so we headed over to Riverside Mall to get in some walking and shopping.  Sweetie bought some sauce dishes at Dillard's that they were almost giving away, and we all got some yogurt, then it was back home to get ready to go to Taki.

Lola, Dodong, Grump, and Kuya strolling through Dillard's, looking for goodies to buy

Later this evening Grump finally killed off his suffering Acer laptop, giving it one whack too many when the power cord was bumped and it shut down on him.  It is pretty much junk now; Sweetie will let Dodong and Kuya play with it for a bit, then it will become part of our local landfill.  (Moral of the story - ALWAYS back up any files you want to keep!)  I'm not sure if Grump will be able to continue with Clickworker/UHRS, because UHRS in particular seems to work primarily with Microsoft's IE, and our remaining two PC's are Macs.  Oh well ...... Grump will have to use his time more wisely now.

Goodnight all!
