It’s been a very hectic frightening few weeks started with learning my mom had a stroke and ending in the Emergency Room. After becoming stable we had my mom moved to a Rehab Center to start with physical therapy, At times like this it is easy to push aside things like a birthday celebration. I am not a baby I am 65 years old. But after speaking with Merci, Marlene, my sister Marianne and my daughter they convinced me that life should not only be lived, it should be celebrated. So celebrate we did, with glasses of wine and beer. there is a full bar, maybe next time.
You know we are big on Groupon and Merci found a great one for Dionysos Restaurant a charming Greek restaurant with delicious food, entertainment and the most attentive staff.
I’m not ashamed to tell you we fought over the Tzatziki Dip, it was just so perfect and we love to start a meal with it and a large Greek Salad, there also was a olive spread, I think I ate that all by myself. Delish!! Salmon and lemon potatoes for my sister, Marlene ordered the Mousaka with green beans on the side and because me and Merci ate most of the bread we split a Chicken Kebob with Lemon Potatoes and we all shared an order of Horta (steamed greens). And as we were enjoying the evening the music started.
Our sisters got up and danced, yes they don’t know how to dance Greek but that was not going to stop them!! OPA!!!
The evening was filled with love, laughter, food, drink,singing and music. I just love being around people who know how to throw money around, don’t you, yes that is money on the floor. Hey, you only live once.
The best things in life are the people you love, the places you’ve seen and the memories you have made along the way. Happy Birthday!
