first lunch in the new decade

The new decade in question is, of course, my 60s. I still can’t believe I’m 60 years old, especially since my mind keeps telling me I’m 22. Or maybe 42. But NOT 60. Doesn’t that just sound so old?

Well… anyway… Steve, Karina and the kids joined us at Tokyo Steak House for a fun lunch yesterday: sushi for me, Steven and Karina; chicken & steak for Leslie, teriyaki beef for Mike and yakisoba for Steve.

Steve was busy taking photos of all of us, so here’s one of him so he wouldn’t be left out. (That’s Karina chowing down on her tempura shrimp roll.)

Steve was quick to point out that he and I are TWO decades apart now. BUT! In just two short years he’ll once again be only one decade younger than me. When that happens, instead of thinking he got OLD, I’ll look at it that I must have gotten a wee bit younger. In the meantime, though…

Where’s my shawl? And my rocker! Would someone please bring me a hot toddy?

happy 100th birthday, president reagan

I never had the good fortune to personally take photos of Ronald Reagan, but we’ve visited the Reagan Library in Simi Valley, California a few times, and here are some of the photos we took on those visits.

This piece of the Berlin Wall was given to President Reagan by the Berlin Wall Commemorative Group for his dedication to freedom for all.

President Reagan’s final resting place:

Some photos from inside the library…

Lt. Ronald Reagan’s Cavalry uniform & saddle:

This is Nancy & Ronald’s booth from Chasen’s restaurant (it was always reserved for them). He proposed to her while sitting in this booth at Chasen’s.

The Oval Office was duplicated exactly for the Reagan Library.

Happy Birthday, Mr. Reagan!
