Happy Birthday to Pearl! -- Saturday, August 6, 2016

Pearl's granddaughter Rachel comments on a blogpost that she can't wait to see the birthday photos.  Yes!  Today is Pearl's birthday.  I tell Rachel the only photo I have at this point is of her talking on her cell phone.  She may as well have it tethered to her ear, because it rings constantly.  Let's see -- I think it is 75 phone calls that say "Happy Birthday" -- not to mention the many eMails that send birthday greetings.  She is loved.


I ask what she wants to do for her birthday, and she replies, "Make reservations."  She is the self appointed cook aboard On Your Mark, and chooses not to spend any time in the galley today, other than stirring up a little appetizer for Happy Hour.

In the past we have used the step stool Luther loaned us from his boat in the slip next to On Your Mark to climb aboard.  But today we see a 'proper' stool and Pearl claims that it is her birthday present.  Awesome!

Thank You, Luther

A 'Proper' Step Stool

Pearl chooses her favorite, Venetian Hot Plate, but there are no reservations available.  She tries La Playa, but they are filled as well.  So we opt to go to the restaurant at the marina, La Barataria.  Skip and Nancy join us.
