Thanks to all and I'm back!

Thanks so much for all the birthday wishes! We had a great time over this weekend and I am so happy now to be back with my little Doozey!

I spoiled her when she got home...chicken to eat, and a nice long walk with her NEW with daisies all over it. She looks like a doll in was one of the few things I bought at the fall festival! I will show a picture of it on her as soon as I get a good nights sleep! I gave her a bath and washed her blanket.

I also bought 3 bars of cocoa mango goats milk soap that smells absolutely devine!!! The food was sucky at the festival, but later that evening we went to the Yearling Restaurant in Cross Creek, Florida...home of the author of The Yearling...Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings!

I had been there many times when I lived in Gainesville (from 1980-1990), and they offered such foods as alligator, turtle (cooter) soup and gravy, frog legs, fried oysters, etc. It was ALL GOOD. We learned this visit that the restaurant had actually closed for a 10 year period while I have been moved away, but opened up again with a new owner a while back. The only thing that was not still on the menu was the turtle soup and gravy. It was such a great birthday day...I cannot tell you! I was so happy to be able to take my Mom, daughter and bestest friend there!!! Happy memories, both old and now NEW!

Our weather has been fantastic the last 2 days...and this morning when we woke up it was 54 degrees thanks to a cold wave passing through...luckily it moved all the way down the state to Miami, so when we got home this afternoon it still felt great! What a very welcome relief from the darn hot hotness of south Florida!!!YEAH!!!

Sounds like you had a marvelous time. Happy belated birthday! I wish we would get some cooler weather. Saturday was 100, and it's almost November. The forecast is high 90s all this week. Darn! It is nice in the mornings and late evenings--the only saving grace.

Hi Julie, Happy belated birthday! I had no idea it was your birthday this past weekend. It was my birthday too, mine is on the 19th!

The cooler weather has moved in here (S. Illinois) too. We enjoyed some really fine days this weekend. Glad you're safe back home and had a wonderful birthday!
