Allot of activity in the Mikeska Family since my last "News" update. We traveled to Las Vegas for the big Super Bowl Party at the Las Vegas Hilton. We had a few "pre-marriage" celebrations for my cousin Gerry, we had a busy January catering numerous fall sports banquets and we celebrated the marriage of Gerry Mikeska to Donna Anderson in El Campo Texas.

Here is the best part of the Chicken Fried Steak Dinner.... The Banana Pudding!

Yes, it's my birthday!
The wonderful staff at the City of Taylor decorated my suburban today in honor of my 40th birthday. They gave me a cake with "too many" candles and some "neat" gifts honoring my old age. Thanks to everyone at City Hall.... especially Anita and Beverly, Fire Chief Haywood Stanford and City Manager Frank Salvato.

I will have more pictures of the Gerry's wedding and a "few" of the parties that preceded it on my next update. There have been too many funerals and not enough weddings in our family recently. My father Rudy Mikeska Sr. always said that we were a "hard working family but we also played hard too!"
