Several weeks ago he announced that we were going out for lunch on his birthday...sounded fine to me. Then I discovered that the feed company annual customer appreciation barbecue was what he had in mind...somehow I had always avoided accompanying him to those, but he informed me I was in for a real treat. And besides, he thought I really should know where our feed is coming from!
The weather couldn't have been better...the meal was excellent...and I was pleasantly surprised to find out I wasn't the only female there for lunch.
Ritchie-Smith Feeds is celebrating their 40th anniversary...so they put on a bigger-than-usual party.
They gave away tons of prizes...but I don't think this was one of them!
We met friends, neighbours...and relatives. Oh yes...and even my good bloggy friend, Lovella. We had a lot to talk about...
...and somehow we never noticed that everyone else had gone home!
Not only was it a great birthday lunch for Elmer, but I had a fine time...and the next time one of these trucks pulls into the yard, I'll know where it's coming from.
The kids are planning a birthday party for their dad on the weekend...I'm wondering what they'll dream up that could top today's bash!
