My hint paid off!

Maggie, John and Debbie teamed up to get me two bottles! I'm no expert, but this stuff is so good. Sweet, but not too sweet--a buttery-caramel taste. And each sip lingers on my tongue, slowly dematerializing, or something. Very good.

Strawberry Shortcake!

Strawberries from the garden, Maggie's shortbread and a little cool whip!

Birthday Present!

Last night Maggie and I went to Ravinia and saw Willie Nelson! It was my birthday present. Willie has the most amazing voice and is such an amazing person. The night was perfect!

Here are some beets. Wouldn't eat one if you paid me, but they're cool. And I'll eat the greens.
