Quilt With Us

Today is my dad's 77th birthday! He and my mom are driving to Portland/Vancouver today so I can take him to one of his favorite restaurants - Todai. It's a Japanese, all you can eat buffet. The first time I took him there, several years ago, they had added a new item to their cooked shellfish bar....lobstah claws (he has a Boston accent). He was in HEAVEN! They weren't Maine lobstah's, but yummy none the less. Well, he ate so many of those claws, that he thinks maybe he made the restaurant broke - they've never offered the claws since. hahaha. But he still likes it.

So my parents are spending the night at my house - no sewing tonight! I'm so lucky both my parents are healthy, happy, and nearby! This pic includes the late Frick.

Karen, I am so happy for you that you have your Dad still with you that you can take him out to celebrate his birthday. Glad you had such a great time. Wish him a very happy belated birthday from your QWU gang. When was this picture taken, Karen, that Frick is not longer with them?

Happy Birthday to your Dad, even if I am late. I hope you all enjoyed your meal. Were you the perfect daughter and called ahead to get in a few "lostah claws" to enjoy.

Happy birthday to your Dad. Lobsters are plentiful here in New England (Maine, NH) right now. When the long-legged crabs are in season, a lot of Chinese restaurants here also offer crab legs on their 'all you can eat' buffet, so guess which item they always run out of first.
Enjoy your folks' stay - you are indeed very fortunate to still have them around.

Happy Birthday Karen's Dad. Today is my mom's birthday. She died almost 5 years ago and my DAD dies almost 6 years ago. Gosh, it still seems like yesterday. I wish my Mom was still around to celebrate with. I would take her to Red Lobster. She and my Dad loved to eat there. So enjoy your parents everyday. God Bless all of you.
