My 50th birthday celebration

This past Saturday I celebrated my 50th birthday with some of my family members.  We had a great time even though I wish all of my children and sisters could have been there.  We had dinner at Koto's, which is a great Japanese restaurant and then went to the casino to see a free concert in the Wolf Den.  The band was The Marshall Tucker band.  It just so happened that foot ball player Doug Flutie played a little bit of drums with the band.

Joe and I took our pictures before the glorious event.. LOL  We should have used the timer to take out picture together but we were in a rush..

They knew it was my birthday and asked if I got embarrassed easy and I said no.  They came out singing a birthday shake it song but it was too early and didn't want to shake it with strangers looking on... LOL

My yummy free dessert they brought me.  It was fried ice cream.. Yum and I shared it..

It was great fun but it was onward to Mohegan Sun for our free concert and fun..

Isn't sushi beautiful and so yummmy too. A perfect food in my estimation.

I LOVE MARSHALL TUCKER. "Heard it in a love song" takes me right back to 1980 and the year Ghetto boy and I met.

Thanks for the blog Tinkie. I can almost hear them singing. ha

Oh man oh man... now I see what we missed out on while I was on my couch crying with the flu... I wanted to be there with you guys so bad... but when you have the flu like I had the flu, you want to be DEAD... thank my lucky stars I am feeling 100% but I am sad we missed all the great food and great music.... bummer...

Is it me or does Barb look extra pretty in the pic with her fish? Something about her makeup really lights up her face... anywho, just wanted to throw that out there.. but all you other ladies looked FINE FINE FINE too! Hot bunch of b!tches! LOLOL
