My Day for Massage and Lobster

(Joliet, IL) Hi 81 Lo 45 -- It's my birthday, so I guess I could do anything I wanted to do, as if that's not a normal day. :)

We had visitors this morning. Rick and Phyllis, who live in this area, knocked on our door around 11am. Rick has been part of the RV-Dreams chatroom since 2007. We try to meet them whenever we're in the area. Thanks Rick and Phyllis for stopping by.

I had an appointment at 1pm for a massage. We got a half-price coupon for it through Living Social. This gal wasn't as good as some I've had, but it was nice to get such a good deal, and it was only about 14 miles away (or as they say in Chicago, "about 20 minutes away"). I had a headache and she found the source, so that's gone.

The best part of the day was tonight's dinner. Our son joined us at the Red Lobster in Orland Park. I've been treating myself to a lobster dinner on my birthday for the last 13 years. I'm getting good at knowing when a lobster is cooked right. And this one was excellent!


















Rick had to drop his car off at the dealer to have some work done, so we took him home after dinner. We then came back to the RV and I jumped into the chatroom for my birthday party. It's fun having a "pretend" party online with everyone. It was a wonderful day, and now I'm a year older.
