Driving me pecans . . .

Yesterday was one of Sarah's sons' birthday. They celebrate both of the guys' special days at the same time, I believe, because they are close together in time. Jealousy has nothing to do with it at all, at all.

When we saw them earlier this month, J and I secreted something with their mother to be presented at the proper time. This saved postage (heh) and more importantly, ensured that I would not miss the boys' birthdays. Again. I have a past history of forgetting such important milestones. I am sincerely sorry when I do that but it keeps occurring. Age has nothing to do with it. I was quite capable of such inattention years ago.

I almost left a pair of glasses at 01 Doc's. J did leave a comb which they mailed to him. Personally, I would have thrown it away and said nothing about it. We had to return to their house before we got very far to pick up a cooler and some home-grown, pre-cracked pecans (yum) which had made it as far as the dining room table before we left without them.

It's a good thing we weren't flying . . .

It's good to be home. Sometimes you need a vacation from your vacation. Tired or sleepy I'm glad you made it home with most of the important things that you left off with. Happy birthday to my second cousins.

Younger 2nd cousin raced into the living room last night after the family got home from church. He gave a huge hug and asked if I'd gotten him a birthday present. He had, in fact - run right past the dining table where his Thomas the Tank Engine cake sat and the chair where his large tissue-stuffed bag was on the seat.

When told he had passed right by the important things, he ran back to the kitchen to see his birthday gifts and raced past the dining table - Again!

I can only think he was tired, due to the late hour of the evning.

Did you celebrate both boys' birthdays together or have they decided that each wants his own special day? They are so adorable. I know we are in perfect agreement on this.

They do b'days apart now. Jan & Feb. Aside - wishes for Happy b-days to J and E who are also in Jan & Feb.

Agreed on the perfect agreement.

And to T, who is also in February, no? Nineteenth, no? Remember the pineapple upside down cake: wasn't it in January? He deserved two that year.
