“When you are lucky enough to have a couple good friends, you enjoy celebrating a couple of times a year. When you have a whole bunch of awesome amazing fantastic good friends, you pretty much celebrate all year long.”

~Toni Armenta Andrukaitis

As you may know already, I have been blessed with a multitude of awesome friends. Not just casual acquaintances, but friends that would go trough fire for you, or give you the shirt off their back. Except for the skinny ones, the shirt just wouldn’t fit me, but they’d offer anyway. That always means a lot of birthdays to celebrate.

Today, we celebrated Karen Thomason’s birthday up in Sherman. We were meeting at The Iron Post Restaurant. Sherri Murphy picked me up, and as we got closer to Sherman, she talked into her phone for directions. She just said, “Directions to The Iron Post.” I said, “Sherri, what if Siri directs you to the nearest iron post on the road and asks you, would you like a rusty iron post or the nearest iron post with a little patina on it.”Then she whacked me on the arm going about 70 mph on Central Expressway. I was being serious.

Girlfriends! (No, we weren’t drinking beer. It was only 11:30 in the morning. We always wait till at least noon.)
Karen loved her presents. Girlfriends think of the greatest presents.
I always try to give a hand-painted or homemade gift. Yellow rose of Texas, also yellow roses are for friendship.
Sherri and I spotted a few cute murals on our way back to the car. Selfie time. I think Sherri is the only friend I know that takes more photos than I do. That’s why we’ve been friends for so long. “Great minds…”
I have wings to soar!
Look at this cool mural. There were several other paintings Of cowboys and cattle and longhorns along the long brick wall.

Great friends, great times, life is good!
