Wow I guess Tomorrow I offically turn 70 years young...I am in total awe - Really - Me?  I don't feel a day over 55 - LOL - or maybe 39 :}  I had a wonderful fun weekend with family and friends.  Saturday morning I spent with my crafting friends having a pot luck brunch then I was all set to go to our planned yearly Family picnic down at my son Earls place.  Friday I went and shopped for my hamberger and brat - to take down to grill - got some gatorade and then fruit, cheese and crackers for my dish to share... Well!  Did I get the Surprize of my life - and I am still smiling about it on the inside.  I planned to ride down with my daughter Nan but at the last minuet she called and said that she would  be over by 1:30 & to have my door open...In walks Thomas "I'll drive you in your car - our car is full because Zuri's friend is going with us and there was no room for us all." he said.. Little did I know it was a ruse.  Nan sped off so Thomas and I put my things in the car and leisurly headed down to Earl's Place.. We get there - call Earl to meet us at the lobby door and he takes me to the party room" lets put your things in here 1st.  OK so he opens the door and I see this mob of people standing there "Family & Friends" Yelling "SURPRIZE!" - Then a storm of canned worms are being squirted on me...I could only stand there and laugh - laugh & laugh some more.  My Grandson George and Great Grandson William were jumping around me delighted in this actvity of all the canned spray worms,  they thought it was great.  Then They dress me in this birthday gear, a hat a purple lay a sign Oh MY!  I'm still laughing at this wonderful surprize.  I had no clue that they were planning this boy did I have no clue.  Guess you could say I was Clueless in Eagan, Mn that day.  well there were cards, and Cake and cupcakes and SANGRIA!  & presents and wine and liquor - wow.  I did have fun with my family and friends and was amazed that the kids put this on for me...without me even suspecting a thing....The last time I had been surprized like that was way back, and I mean way back - it was 1961 and I was going over my aunts house for some reason? can't remember why, but my then Fiance drove me over and it was a surprize Bridal Shower for me...My husband never can keep a secret - well he sure did on that day!  but never again LOL  - Then Sunday I had a pleasant day at church then over to Nan's for Tea and then over to my friend Phyllisis house to spend the day.  I was a fun weekend all around....
