'What day is it?' asked Pooh. 'It's Dave's Birthday today,' squeaked Piglet. 'My favorite day,' said Pooh.

Thanks everyone!!!!!! Two celebrations here this year. We had a cookout yesterday with my Mom, aunt, and two friends and this evening we are going out for dinner to celebrate my actual B-day. Will post pics from last night once I get them off my phone.

I'll report back in tonight on the birthday dinner.

Baley's Irish cream pie with oreo crust.

Dinner was great. I think we finally found a local restaurant that we really like.

No it is just north of Solomon's Island, MD in Calvert County. They have a nice menu selection there. Next time we are trying the pizzas.
