Da Double Nickel


James is 55 today.

I'm happy to say that I'm not 55 today but alas, it's coming sooner than I want. This photo was taken when he was in SD back in December, after he'd shot his first pheasant.

I went shopping this morning and brought him his favorite chocolates, a bunch of socks, and a new pad thing for his truck seat. I'm making chicken and dumplings, cornbread, and taters for his supper, and I've already made his chocolate birthday cake and I didn't even explode it this year.

He's lounging in his recliner now because it rained and he's home but he had to move my dryer to replace the vent hose so he's all tuckered out, I reckon.

Happy Birthday to James! Sounds like a good supper to me. I do like your explanation of what political correctness really means - found below your profile - sounds accurate to me. ec

Happy Birthday to James!!
Egads, but I am older than he is!
I saw on the news today the tornado that took out a highschool and thought about y'all! Hope all is well your way.

All that bad ole weather missed us. We had some storms but not nearly as bad as last Saturday's were. I think the school was in Alabama, so tragic.

How did I miss the exploding cake story? Hope James had a happy bd. He's just a few months older than I am.

Happy Birthday to James!

ps - what a surreal experience being so close to a tornado, please be careful.

pps - yes what a tragic story about Anne Nicole's baby, reminds me of poor little rich girl, no one loves you, they love your money.
