My Birthday Weekend - November 20-22, 2021

This blog was written Wednesday, March 23, 2022, as I attempt to catch up on what we did from November 2021 to March 2022. There are some blogs already written, but there's much more to write about. Today's blog is a short reminder of our activities for a few days.

For my birthday on Saturday, November 20, Bob took me to Santikos Wunderland theater to see the action/comedy movie "Red Notice." It's a fun, twisty romp about an FBI profiler pursuing the world's most wanted art thief. The movie stars Ryan Reynolds, Dwayne Johnson, and Gal Gadot. I would rate it 4 out of 5 stars for its entertainment value, not its profundity.

For dinner, Bob took me to The Melting Pot. That is a definitely a place for people who love food to celebrate! Our dinner was amazing!

On Sunday, November 21, we went for my birthday lunch to PF Chang's with Jim and Peri Dean. We had a great time with them and spent a couple of hours talking and listening. PF Chang's even shot off fireworks with my birthday dessert!

Fireworks for my birthday!

Peri, who is very creative, made a personalized mug for me and filled it with hot chocolate packets. She is so thoughtful! Thank you, Peri.

November 22-26: Bob flew to Las Vegas to spend Thanksgiving week with his family. They celebrated Thanksgiving at his Mom's house with dinner courtesy of his sister, Laura. Laura, Louise (Bob's mom), and Bob got out and walked a few times while he was there. Bob helped his mom with chores around the house and yard. While he was in Las Vegas, he ran 8-9 miles almost every day. [The following photos are courtesy of Bob.]

Bob missed seeing his niece Janice, her husband Shay, and her two kids, Jayce and Jovie. They were visiting Phoenix for Thanksgiving.

That sums up our weekend together and Bob's week in Las Vegas.


  1. Birthdays can always be fun when celebrated with love. Peri sure does have talent. And, family time is important. I'm glad Bob got out to Vegas to make memories with his family members. No

    1. Hi DJ. Thanks for the comment. I think it got cut off, though.
