Miss Carol's Birthday

Wednesday night we had a belated celebration of Miss Carol's Birthday. We had invited her over on Monday, but she was sick, so we just put the food in the fridge and waited till she felt better. Lenny and Kay, who live in her back house and care for the horses, also came. Amanda decorated some cupcakes to look like horses for the birthday cake.

After dinner we moved outside and visited on the deck till after dark. Miss Carol enjoyed the view of her property from a new direction. We learned a new word when Kay asked us if we had "clubbed" our basement. I guess people used to put club rooms in the basement in Maryland. We told her we plan to club it sometime next year!

Miss Carol still had the energy to blow out all her candles, but she cheated by taking several breaths. I guess when you're over 80 you can do whatever you like!
