Google Knows EVERYTHING


I know, I know...Google knows too much about me.  It sometimes follows me around and gives me suggestions of stuff to buy that I ALREADY bought.  BUT.  When you wake up on your birthday and open your Google Page and there it is...Google in Birthday Mode and even says Happy Birthday Carol...well I HAVE to admit that I thought it was pretty cool.

Terry and I are going out today.  I'm not sure where we will end up.  For sure at Target because I received a rather large gift card from them for sheets that I bought whose content was misrepresented.  Not by Target but by the manufacturer...probably made in china.

We are meeting the kids at Golden Corral because GC sent me a free birthday meal and they are having a Shrimp Extravaganza.  GC is not my favorite place to go by any means but we're going by the kids budget so it's all good.

Today I am 65...medicare ready.  I was thinking yesterday how lucky I am that I was able to retire early and enjoy the past couple of years with Terry all day long.  If I hadn't retired, we would not have our dogs because we would not have gotten dogs until I could be home to housebreak them.  We love them so much and they are really great friends.

I was thinking back on so many things I am grateful for...far too many to mention.

So Happy Birthday to me!!  For the most part the past 65 years have been a blast!!
