Recovering from a Birthday....

So yesterday was my birthday. It was my number swap birthday, where the digits in my age are the opposite of my birth year.

My parents came down and even though it was really hot we went to the Racine Zoo to try and see the new Lion Cubs. They were smarter than us, sleeping in the shade inside their den.

For dinner we went to Olde Madrid for Tapas and Paella where my wife and I went for Valentine's Day in 2009. This time we tried the Gazpacho, Seville Crab Cakes, Roasted Chicken and Cherries, Almond Crusted Cod, Empanadas, Baked Goat Cheese, Spanish Meatballs, Don Quixote Paella "A legendary combination of garlic, sautéed chicken, and pork tenderloin, baked in a garlic lemon broth." We ended with the Plantana al Carmaleo "Sautéed banana with caramel sauce and ice cream."

I have not been that full in a long time :)

Today I got up early and checked the Weather Channel, more hot and muggy weather all week so went out started mowing the lawn **again**. I wish it would quit raining so the grass would go to sleep! I have two cordless electric lawnmowers which are nice and quiet but one of them stopped working - the ignition switch broke so it's a trip to the repair shop. But that's not the worst thing! "Me Ole Bamboo" from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang got stuck in my head! So here it is because the best way to get rid of an "Ear Worm" is to share it!
