Celebrating By Throwing A Line In!

And CELEBRATE I will!!!  Because, well you's a special day... 

For some unknown reason, I look forward to birthdays more than Christmas.  Why?  Why do I want to celebrate getting a year older when I should want to be a year younger???  Hmmm...good question.  And here's the answer.  You see, first of all...I'm all about the older you get the wiser you get!  (Well, I'm still hoping!!)  Do I still believe in Santa Claus...of course!  Ha.  

Then, there's the double party thing...with my daughter who was born a day before my birthday.  We always have fun sharing our party.  I love celebrations...  Ok...I must confess.  Not just a week, but well.. sometimes a couple of weeks!  I told the hubby that I would admit that I celebrate my birthday more than once during the month.  There.  I said it!  He thinks that it is fetchin' hilarious that everytime I go out to shop during the month, I come back with the excuse..."It's for my birthday!"  Sometimes, I am known to have said it a few months before. Ahhh...The funny thing is...I really hate to shop.  The only stores that I go into are fly shops and grocery stores...honestly. 

Anyway, I guess that I think that he will forget that I had my present a couple of months ago...right?  Hahaha.  Let's see, when I picked up my new fly rod, "Blue",   I did say it was "part" of my birthday.  Just part.  (Just in case I saw something else that I reallllly needed!) could have all been for the June anniversary...yeah, that's it.  Let's go back a few months...

Then, a couple of weeks ago, there was a swell deal on a new plastic net that wouldn't catch all those darn hooks in it!  

And finally last weekend, I guess that I forgot that my birthday was over (before it started) and I tried on a pair of boots that fit me to the tee!  And would prevent me from falling on the ice this winter. (Could I have purchased them closer to when the snow flies???) Maybe. But, they really did make my feet feel better.  Ok...I told my hubby that they weren't from him...they were from his mother.  There!  Problem solved.  Heehee  :  ) RD always has the answers. 

Then, there is the "dinner" out with a free birthday dessert.  I always do that!!  Last year, I was reminded that I did it twice in the same birthday week...oh, birthday spank me for that!  : )  And yes, RD did get a bull ride at Texas Roadhouse.

Today, I have to go to work until 3:00 pm...Then, it is off to the canyon to find a brookie or a brown...won't be choosy.  Then, to Lake XYZ on my way home to catch hopefully a tiger trout to make my B-day a perfect one.  No birthday party tonight, as my daughter and I will celebrate Sunday night together with the family.  Let's look forward to making two casseroles and a half sheet cake for twelve!  Yeah, we will.


  1. Sounds like you've already had quite a happy birthday even if you stopped the celebrating now. Enjoy the rest of your celebrations, and catch a big trout for us.

  2. A great birthday season for sure! I know you got some pretty cool gear, but that dessert would be pretty hard to beat :-)

    Happy birthday!

  3. Happy Birthday! I'm with you on stretching the celebrations out as long as possible :)

  4. Jay - We will do our best on the trout!! Thx...

    Sanders - Chocolate anything is good with me! Haha
    I like the birthday "season"...good one!

    JM - Thanks and I think I've done pretty well. ; )

  5. I can't believe it. I've only got two words for someone like you...Happy Birthday.

  6. Cofisher ~ Thank you. (The Beatles were for you)

  7. Happy Birthday RD. Hope you enjoyed your day. TX Roadhouse is fun, so here's a big Yeee-Hawww from the East Coast!

    And thanks for making it look like I had something to do with the wading boots by strategically placing those stickers. Now had I actually known it was going to be your birthday...

  8. Thanks T!...Gee, I don't know how those stickers find themselves everywhere!!

  9. The rod is nice, the net is nice, and the boots are nice, but, get out of the way, I'm after the chocolate ice cream thing. Happy Birthday Emily.


  10. Thanks, Mark. I'm afraid that it will be a battle for the dessert... : )
