Husband Jim turned 70 today
Twenty-two friends joined us to celebrate
And not only did we sing "Happy Birthday"
but we also sang
"For He's A Jolly Good Fellow"
(thank you Phil)
Dinner was served on the breakfast porch
the Spode Blue Room
small rolls, Rea Drummond's Pulled Pork, Smokestake Baked Beans and
The pulled pork is awesome
Daughter Sarah found the recipe -- Pioneer Woman's Pulled Pork
She's made it not once but twice
and received rave reviews both times
(As did I tonight)
And of course for a birthday there must be cake!
Chocolate with curls of chocolate
And not 70 candles but candles that said "70"!
It was a semi surprise . . .
Jim suspected something but he wasn't sure what
He was pleased that so many of our friends
came to spend the evening with him.
