Today Is My Birthday!

Today, I turn Double Nickels, 55! I had a very nice birthday that actaully began on Thursday when we had the privilege of seeing Hal Holbrook do his one man show, "Mark Twain Tonight!" at the Rose State College Performing Arts Center. Then we went to Tulsa where Cat's sister and brother-in-law live. They are both movie buffs and so they took us to see a very weird Korean film called The Host. I found it "interesting" but certainly not to everyone's taste, including mine.

The next day we had "brunch" at IHOP with Cat's son, his wife and his wife's two children. I have always said that when I turn 55, I'm going to embrace the age by ordering the off the Senior Citizen's menu, so I had the "Senior Citizen Sampler". The food was okay, but the service was very 2nd rate.

Then we went to the Oklahoma Aquarium in Jenks. I really enjoyed that. I'm fascinated by nature, particularly aquadic nature because I really feel it's like looking at something right out of the age of the Dinosaurs.

I had a great time!
