Kidnapped...

Yesterday my friend stopped at work and brought me Dr Pepper and a chocolate bar with a picture of puppies on it.  She told me I only needed chocolate, not a real dog.

Then she kidnapped me for my birthday.  She called my home and left a message, Kidnapped Gail, no ransom involved, will return her sometime later...I am taking her to celebrate her birthday.

My friend would not take no for an answer and off we went.  She took me out to eat and to Walmart and even drove me by the dog pound for my puppy fix...but the gate was locked and I could see no dogs...she planned it that way.

We went to her favorite place to eat, Cowboy's Barbeque and we had the most wonderful peanut butter pie for dessert.

Was released before bedtime, Hubby and Andrew had me more chocolate.  Both my daughers had told me Happy Birthday earlier and it was good to hear from them.  My friend Anna emailed me and I had cards in the mail.  Also this afternoon, Marcy hauled a bag of goodies over.  Bev said I'm not giving you anything...while she cleaned my house!!

I guess turning fifty-six was a pretty good deal...I made out like a bandit!
