Taking the dogs to the Alton McDonald’s (at the circle) for their respective birthdays, May 15 & July 20, has now been a firm tradition for at least 11-years (methinks). Started with Ulysses when we moved to Alton in 2007. It has continued with Maya and Braxton.

Braxton, being your quintessential British hunting dog, like the Queen, has an OFFICIAL birthday — July 20 (which was Deanna’s father’s birthday). But, alas, unlike the Queen he doesn’t have a real birthday. Given that he is our rescue dog nobody knows for sure when he was born. They think it was around the 3rd week in July.

This year, i.e., 2019, we added ice cream to the menu. Maya is more fond of it than Braxton. Braxton likes his customized cheeseburgers. Given how hot it was today the ice creams were good for them.

It is not the only time we take them to this McDonald’s. They get to go on a fairly regular basis. They know the routine when we get there. They each get two plain cheeseburgers and whatever buns I do not eat. No fries. They are happy.

It is fun. Teischan enjoys it as much as the dogs and, of course, she gets food and ice cream too. So, she does better than the dogs. She is the one that keeps track of these birthdays.

So, both their birthdays in 2019 are done.

That is a LOT of watch for that price. You will also notice that the packaging, icons and even the User Manual look very Garmin. SMILE.

It runs Android. So, Android on your wrist.

Appears it is not waterproof. That is a liability. I am now so used to showering with a smartwatch on … never mind the swimming.

But, I wanted to bring this to your attention.

Worth checking out.
