Happy Birthday, Riff!!

"Happy Birthday To You, You Live In A Zoo..."

Riff celebrated ANOTHER birthday on Saturday...He just keeps having one every year! He mentioned that he heard the words "old man" a few too many times in the last several days. Hey, we just call it like we see it!! Shilo and I were recovering from a nasty bought of the flu, so took it pretty easy all weekend. It was fairly blustery (80 mph winds), so went to check out the wave action at the south jetty, but caught it at low tide, so nothing terribly exciting. There was alot of debris on the beach from all the storms of late. Much more than we typically see here.

Riff recieved a new miter saw for his birthday that he got to pick out himself, an Allman Brothers concert on DVD, (Live at The Beacon), and an old Jeff Bridges Movie, (Rancho Deluxe) from me. Shilo gave him the new Dukes of Hazzard movie on DVD and Dustin gave him the biggest Dungeness Crab he could find at the store. He and I also went out to dinner at the Columbian Cafe in Astoria. It is a very small place-3 booths and the bar. The Chef/Owner serves up delicious New Orleans style meals that he cooks on a small grill right behind the bar. It is always served with the house beer bread, then a french bread toast and the three jellies that he also makes. (Garlic-my favorite- Jalapeno & Red Pepper). MMM--good!

Some sunshine the last several days. My crocus' are blooming and the daffodils are poking their necks up out of the soil....Has spring sprung??
