Next Year...Medicare!

Summer has been a busy time here in our neck of the woods, running to and fro with the family.

Our outing last Tuesday with the girls was to Victor's 1959 Cafe where meals are prepared with a Cuban theme.  The decor is eclectic and everything is covered with graffiti.  The kids enjoyed adding their "mark" where ever they could find a spot faded enough to write over.

Then we went to the Mall of America to take in the CSI Experience.  You are assigned a case file and go from room to room looking at the scene, into the lab to examine evidence and trying to find out how the person died and if it was murder, who did it.  We all managed to find the culprit and had a great time in doing so.

Thursday Kiersten had plans to go swimming with a friend, so we took Emily to The Roasted Pear for lunch and then we watched Bones on Netflix while Left Brain mowed the lawn.  Yup, there may be a forensic scientist in the making here.

Today is my birthday, so I opted for a day of shopping for some new clothes since all I seem to have are ratty t-shirts and I really don't own anything dress casual for nicer events.

I'm celebrating 64 years young and with a blue moon as well. Seems fitting

While I was running around from store to store making purchases and singing "Happy Birthday to Me", Wells Fargo was calling Left Brain to report suspicious activity on our card.  I guess if it was at Walmart or buying gas it was questionable.

I sat in the car and had a nice chat with the lady from Wells Fargo and going over each purchase made in the last couple of hours and resolved the issue. 

Tomorrow brings the pickleball tournament and I've been looking forward to this for a couple of weeks now.  Wish me luck!

Long Live the Old Queen 


  1. Happy 64th!!!!!!!!!! Sounds like you are having fun with the grandkids. We "lost" another cc to suspicious activity. All this travel must make both of us very susceptible

  2. First, HAPPY BIRTHDAY !!! Welcome to the world of "oldies but goodies"!!!! I'm wishing you a fabulous year filled with happiness.

    I would have enjoyed that CSI experience. What a fun way to spend an afternoon. I visited a Mall of America just once, and it was just awesome!! It's good that your Wells Fargo situation was solvable. At least they were looking out for you. Good luck with your pickleball tournament. Have a super weekend, hugs, Edna B.

  3. You know there's this song.

  4. Sounds like a fun summer. The Cafe sounded pretty cool and doing that CSI thing would be so much fun. We love CSI shows.
