I have been enjoying visiting blogs and decided to start my own, even though I don't know what I am doing or if anyone will even be interested in reading what I have to say. I am a 50 year old management consultant who has been married to the the love of my life for 30 years and have two grown daughters and a son-in-law who we are very proud of. We are blessed to live in Scottsdale Arizona and are enjoying getting out and experiencing it in our RV! Thanks for stopping by our blog and please consider joining us, who knows where we will go...Kevin & Tracy.

A Wonderful Day!

Yesterday was my Birthday and it was sure a great one.  The day started out with notes from my wife wishing me a happy day throughout the house and even in my car.  She even had a balloon waiting for me on the workbench in the garage when I returned home from work. 

I had many great Birthday wishes from family and friends through Facebook along with text messages and Birthday cards.

The day finished with dinner and dessert at Oregano's.  Tracy and I both agreed that we ate way too much, but we managed to eat an entire cookie and ice cream, just couldn't resist.


Tracy bought me a new set of TV ears, which is actually a gift for her as much as it is for me.  Let me explain...the older I get, the louder the TV gets and Tracy gets tired of listening to my reality and cop shows. So this enables me to hear everything, while keeping the house perfectly silent for her.  It is a win/win.:-)
Got my ears on!
Thanks for all of your input about my conundrum regarding the name of our blog.  We received everything from it doesn't matter, be happy to add 50+ to the title.  I need to take a closer look at it, but I kind of like the 50+ idea. Thanks again for all of the great responses!

We continue to enjoy this wonderful weather and can't wait to get out camping at McDowell Mountain Regional Park this weekend.  It is supposed to be in the 90's, so we may be giving the AC a workout.  

We hope your week is going well, travel safely and thanks for the visit!

  7. I have a hearing loss to and it is for speech recognition, so the hearing aids route it is for me. The tv was loud enough, could just not understand the words.

  8. Happy Birthday Kevin, 50 was a great year and so far as a 51 year old I have reversed the aging process. :) It may be that we appreciate each day more as we get older.
