So it's not your birthday...

Well, then,

A Very Merry Unbirthday to YOU!! and YOU! and YOU too!

Hey, guess what??? It's not my birthday either! Wow. Talk about a coincidence. Pretty amazing, huh? We could all sulk and cry about it together. If you're looking for a little sympathy, you've come to the right place. We can whine and mope as a crowd. We could be bitter.

WAIT!!! We're all old enough. We're glad we're not having a birthday, right? You guys. Birthdays are crap. Not that I want to stop having them of course. But still.

Have a happy unofficial-end-of-the-summer weekend, y'all. *Party 'til you're purple. Like that.

*(I don't really recommend that. Use sunblock.)

Happy Birthday DDD

3D will be 49 on August 29th. Dang! That girl is old. I'm way too cute to have a kid that age.

Here she is when she graduated from college. Now her own twins are checking out colleges and trying to decide where to go. I hope she teaches them to iron their graduation gown. Like I didn't.

Where did the time go? Seems like yesterday that she learned to walk and talk. She never did learn to stop talking. That girl.

Happy Birthday DDD!!! And many more....

It's not my daughter's birthday anymore

My daughter Actonbell says I have to "take down" the post below because it's not her birthday now. That girl. So pushy. Not so much. Generally.

I've been doing a lot of stuff, but I don't feel like writing it out, so I'll just post some funny pictures instead.

This game is probably called Chicken. I've heard about people playing Chicken, but didn't realize that it involved actual chickens. Who knew?

I've got nothing against cops...but then it's always fun to laugh at them. You know it's true.

Is this funny? I think it is. She has a secret admirer. Was that the idea?

This is my husband Niks. He's inside the State Capitol Building in Salem, Oregon. It's a Sunday. The Capitol Building is not open on Sundays. But I found a door that wasn't locked. Of course, I had to try a lot of doors before I found one out-of-the-way door that was unlocked, but it was unlocked. I did not break into the building. Notice the look of terror on his face? He was sooooo afraid that we would be arrested! That Niks. Now that's chicken.
