The Good With The Bad

We had a fun birthday dinner night with my daughter, her fiance and her best friend (the maid of honor to be) but on that same day, my father-in-law fell and broke his hip.
My daughter loved the little crown and flashing light button that I bought for her. I told her, "I have no memory whatsoever of my 26th birthday, so I want to make sure you remember yours." Of course the fact that her wedding dress came in that day will probably make her 26th birthday more memorable than the silly fun items I bought at the party store.
Tuesday early evening my father-in-law had surgery on his hip. He was not a good candidate for pins and so they cemented his hip back together. We spent an hour at the hospital with my MIL waiting for my FIL to come out of surgery and then the three of us went out for dinner. We got back just minutes before he was taken to his room. He was pretty out of it from the morphine but at one point he asked if he was at Cattleman's Steak House. He seems to be doing okay.
After our seriously hot 107° degree day on Sunday, a norther came through and Tuesday saw a high of "only" 90°.
My brother and Mom have made their flight reservations for my daughter's wedding in October. That's exciting. And they will be here a little longer than I had originally thought. I'm looking forward to their visit.
Oh and we had our hot tub removed. I''l post about that next time. I'm tired.

I love these little snippits. Tell your FIL for me to hang in there.

Best wishes to your FIL. A broken hip is never fun.

I mean this in all sincerity. You don't look old enough to have a 26 year old bride to be as a daughter.

All the best to the FiL. And brrrrr...90 degrees...

Nice photo of the two of you. The familial resemblance is profound as in apples not falling far from the tree.

Mr. Jazz,
~~True that. I broke mine in two places when I was 19. Well my pelvic bone.

~~I'm crazy like that.

~~No kidding and the high today was 80°! Crazy.

~~She looks way more like her dad then me, but people always say that.
