So as I was telling you in the last post I turned 31 the other day. I received may presents from my wife. We went to dinner with my dad and step mom, and then some of our really great friends. Dinner was a blast just hanging out and talking.

Angela got me a new messenger bag to carry my stuff in, a new golf bag, golf glove, iTunes gift card and stuff to put in my bag. She loves to call my messenger bag a “purse”. It is not a purse it is a MESSENGER Bag. Indiana Jones carried one it was a satchel.

Ok now let us get back on topic. Dinner was at Red Lobster for the all you can eat shrimp. I got my moneys worth, I ate 5 orders of shrimp scampi, and one order of grilled garlic shrimp. It was good, not as good as fresh shrimp but still good.

Saturday we got up, got showered and dressed, then we headed off for St. Louis to the Fox Theatre to see Shrek the Musical. It was fun, the make-up was amazing and we had good seats. I love the Fox

Theatre with all of the woodwork and statues. It has that classic feel that is amazing. That is the 6th or 7th time we have been there.

When we the Play was over I was in contact with Rickie, my friend who was looking after the animals while we were out, he said that the dog doesn’t like him and was scared and pooped all over the place. So instead of going out to dinner which was our original plan we decided it was best to head home to access the situation.

When we got home we had to do some light house cleaning, wash the couch cushion covers, and give the dog a bath. She was better when we got home she calmed down and laid in her bed. She had a rough day.

Sunday we were supposed to go to a Family Reunion for Angela’s family but we didn’t. Angela didn’t feel well and the house was in some dire need of some TLC. So we spent a couple of hours getting some cleaning done. Then to the grocery (where we spent way to much money).

When we got home Angela made some of her nearly Famous Veggie Soup. It was really, really good. Then we tried to watch “Old Dogs”, it wasn’t good.

As a Birthday Weekend I would have to say it was the BEST one yet. Might not sound all that great to you but I loved every minute of it.

Today is my birthday, I turned 31 at 7:40 this morning. I don’t feel any older nor do I feel any smarter. I could have swore that I heard that you get wiser with age. I am not so it sure. We will see still have a lot of life to live “I hope”. IT IS GOING TO BE A GOOD DAY!

So far it has been a great birthday. It sucks that I have to work on my Birthday but it will be over soon. Tonight I am going to dinner with my Wife, dad, stepmom, and a couple friends. Nothing big but should be a good time. It usually is. Tomorrow we are going to St. Louis to see Shrek the play, and Sunday we are going to a family reunion. Busy weekends seem to be the normal for us.

So far my wife has given me a new messenger bag it is really nice. She loves to make me wait to get gifts and it is torture to me.

Well it is a short post today but just wanted to share a little with you.

Breezy (the New PUPPY)

It all started on Angela’s birthday, she got a phone call that was a little weird but made sense later. The phone call was from her aunt and she was wanting to know if we would like to take her 4 year old standard poodle. She said that the poodle was not getting along with the other dogs, she also has a yorkie and a miniature Schnauzer. Angela tells her that we will talk about it.

Before I met Angela I had never seen a standard poodle, if you haven’t think of a poodle now make it the size of a retriever. Angela’s other aunt has two and I thought they were amazing animals.

So Angela and I talk about it and decide that we will give her a try, so we can see if she gets along with the cats. So her aunt brings her over on a Friday and the cats are upstairs when she arrives. Instead of letting the cats look at her and decide whether or not to run she just removes the leash. This kind of freaked Angela and I out a little bit but to much surprise Breezy didn’t chase or much seem to care that the cats were even there.

So we get everything setup and take her outside to play with her so she can get used to us with her previous owners still there. She loves to chase Frisbees and balls, she brings them back to you. She is very intelligent and well behaved. That night she slept in her kennel and was fine.

Saturday she got played with a lot since my brother came out with the kids. She also spent a lot of time outside. That night we are getting ready for bed and she goes in her kennel without any problems. Angela and I head for bed about 2 hours later she starts to howl and wakes us up. I am not very happy about this, I walk into the living room where she is I tell her everything is ok and tom lay down. She does.

1 hour later I am up again, and then again in another hour. Finally i get up and go sleep on the couch so she will stop howling. But even with this we have decided to keep her. We have grown attached. The cats are now starting to warm up to her. This morning when we left for work she was in her kennel and ash was laying on top of it watching her.
