Talking Mr. P's Poker Run Surprise

Ian turns 50 next week and I have been keeping a big secret from him for the past two months I made a donation to the Jennifer Moulter fund and in return BobtheBuilder is letting Ian and I join him on his 50' Nor-Tech, Predator for the Ft Myer Poker Run. I booked our flights, reserved the room, talked to his boss, and even talked to Terry Sobo about a tour of the Nor-Tech factory. Usually I can't keep a secret so it's hard to believe I managed to pull this off, but I did This weekend Bob called to deliver the news, Ian was surprised and excited. Neither of us have boated in FL so to us this is a big deal. Thanks Bob for helping me give Ian a great 50th birthday gift.

Please help me wish Ian a happy 50th

What a surprise! Donna did warn me a couple of weeks ago to leave this weekend open. I thought we were going to western Michigan for the weekend or something. I never thought of someting like this. Hope my liver is up for it.
