Tom’s Pandemic Birthday

For Tom’s birthday, we visited our beagle puppy. She has changed a lot in 1 week’s time. She is much more awake and playful. Plus she has teeth and is starting to use them. She is Tom’s birthday present so I thought it would be nice to visit her for his birthday. We will pick her up in about 3 weeks. Name is still undecided. We want to get to know her a little better first.

Then we picked up a take out dinner and ate it in courses on the way home.  I had found a park (I thought) that was said to be open (per its website) and have views from the parking lot (per google maps).  Both were lies, but we ate the first course (onion soup and wedge salad) in its dark parking lot.  

Then we headed to Grand Avenue Park in Everett.  I used to eat lunches here when I worked nearby.  It is not quite an scenic after dark however.  We listened to Bluesville including the Bishop/Musselwhite’s What the Hell?  I had the wild mushroom stroganoff, and Tom had a tenderloin steak.

Then we headed more toward home.  There was a nicer viewpoint farther north which we will have to remember for the next pandemic birthday.  Once home, we had dessert.  It was a New York Cheesecake.  My mother/step-father’s present of a car mouse is in the background.

It was a nice birthday, considering the circumstances. It wasn’t nearly as nice as last year, but that is before “the shit hit the fan” (Tom’s assessment). The beagle puppy will be a nice addition to our little family. We are looking forward to that.

    I can’t think of a nicer present than a new puppy, and getting to visit her is a close second. Happy Birthday, Tom!
