When your boyfriend turns 90...

How do you celebrate? With flowers and a nice dinner, of course! My mom's gentleman friend, Ken, had his 90th birthday yesterday. They usually don't buy each other gifts...you see, at this point in their life they are trying to get rid of stuff, not acquire more. But, a 90th birthday...this is special. So I took her out to pick out the perfect hanging basket. The shepherd's hook is from our family. He must like it...it was on display by his front door early this morning.
For dinner we drove out to The Cove. It is out at the resort. We asked for a table by the window with a beautiful view of the lake. The food was delicious and the darling waitresses sang to him. They couldn't believe he is 90. But then...to them, I'm sure they thought I was old!
