What a nice weekend

Post by BrianT » Tue Jul 24, 2012 6:09 pm

On Sunday 22rd, my daughter and I celebrated our birthdays
Michelle was 29 and I am 60.

We had a family BBQ at Michele's place, and the them
was all Jamaica, Red Stripe beer, Jamaica Patties, Jerk Chicken and Goat Curry.

A fun time was had by all, we both open our gifts and birthday cards and inside the last card I opened
from my wife (Pat) was a voucher for a trip to Jamaica leaving on 3rd Aug for a week.
Thats going to be fun, real good food, sun and sand, scuba diving and a all natural beach (all over tan)
We will be staying at Couples Sans Souci http://couples.com/sans-souci/

So life for me at 60 is not that bad, a trip to Jamaica and then in Sept CarverFest 12
