Oct. 3 - My official birthday is on October 2nd, but because we had an appointments with the Dermatologist in Murrieta on the 3rd, we decided to celebrate then.

We started the day with a movie at the California Oaks Theatre.  I chose LOOPER because the time it was playing fit into our busy schedule.  It was pretty good, not great.  Besides, I love Bruce Willis.

Next, Ken took me to Dick's Sporting Goods.  I wanted to get a Medicine Ball (four pounds).  I need to do something to strengthen my core!!  Hope this works!!

After filling up with gas at Sam's Club (UGH!) we headed to see Dr. Leslie, the Dermatologist.  An earlier biopsy revealed I had a skin cancer that Dr. Leslie removed today.  She told me not to do anything strenuous until the stitches are removed on the 10th.  That means no Pickleball for a week and no Medicine Ball exercises!!  Ken had a few pre-cancer cells that Dr. Leslie froze off.

After our trip to the doctor, Ken took me to Target's to buy me a nightgown for my birthday!!  Thanks you, Ken!!  (I forgot to take a picture of the store, and you are not going to see me in the nightgown!!!)

Earlier, when we went to the California Oaks Theatre, Ken noticed a Chili's Restaurant.  We have not been to Chili's for a long time, but decided that would be a good, convenient place for a birthday dinner.  It turned out to be a great idea!!

After browsing the menu, we decided to try the "2 for $20" Ribs.  The meals came with an appetizer.  Ken had noticed people eating something really interesting and we asked Rachael, our waitress, about it.   Chili's Fried Onion Strings and Jalapeno Stacks!!  It was Wonderful!!!

Partially eaten before I remembered you would want to see a picture!!

The half rack of ribs with fries.  Rachael checked with the bartender who allowed us to have beer from the bar at Happy Hour prices!!!  (For my birthday!!)  UUUMMMMM!!  Everything was delicious!!

After our meal, Rachael surprised me with all the waitresses and waiters serenading me with "Happy Birthday To You", and presenting me with a Brownie Sundae!!  Thank you so much Rachael!!

The celebration happened so quickly that Ken was unable to get a picture of the group singing, but this nice young man quickly kneeled for a picture with the Old Lady!!
