Happy Birthday Rich

Today Rich is celebrating his 66th Birthday, and I can't let the day go by without sharing some of my favorite photos of my favorite guy!   The day has been full of birthday greetings.  The first phone call of the day was from grandson, Dalton..............and that was about 7:40 AM!!!   Can't remember the last time I was witness to an actual SMILE that early in the morning!  Daughter - in- law Crystal called to send her greetings.....and then this picture  of Dad and son Dennis appeared on face book with a message from Dennis!

Gotta give a Shout Out and Very Happy Birthday to my Fabulous Father!  Wishing all well.  Miss and Love You, Dad.  

Will call later, so get the day started out great as you always do. 

Dennis did follow-up later in the day with a phone call, and that is always the "icing on the cake" for Rich.  Other friends and family followed suit throughout the day.

Me...........well I always like to share pictures, so I couldn't think of a better day to share some of my favorite photos of my favorite guy!  First picture captures some of the good times and great memories with some of his "old, new, and best friends."  Dean and Sherri Rogers, Nathan and Krystal Showalter, Buddy and Diane Douglas, Kathy (Bob) Hughes, Al and Barb Courtney, Bob and LaVern Krisby, Nick and Tonyia Cartos, Bill and Linda Simek, Dieter and Helen Kedrowitsch and Linda Bass.

And ......of course......those special moments at home, out fishing, fishing with his new pal, Mr White Ibis at the dock, and with family:  me, Dennis, Crystal, Dalton and Chauna.

It was a work day for Rich, but we did head into town to meet up with very good friends, Nick and Tonyia at the Outback Steakhouse to celebrate.  Haven't been there in about two years - and that was with Nick and Tonyia and Nathan and Krystal.  A Bloomin Onion to share at the table, and everyone opted for steak tonight.  The wait staff brought the birthday boy his ice cream and did their little song and dance.  A quick stop at Lowes for more lumber for the deck and then home to top off the night with a piece of birthday cake!  The birthday boy also got a new fishing pole, reel and spinner bait!

Thanks to family and friends for all the birthday cards, phone calls and emails.
