Happy Birthday

Today was Lisa's birthday. We didn't do much special for her but we tried. After church I barbecued some Rib Eye steaks and they were pretty good. I meant to leave some medium for the rest of us but they all ended up well done like Lisa likes them. After that we opened gifts. I got her a digital camera because hers finally gave up the ghost after about ten years of service. I think she got one right after they were invented. Sarah decided to wrap the memory card for the camera in a huge box filled with newspapers. Lisa is kind of addicted to the smell of newsprint so I had to take a picture of her sticking her head in the box taking a deep breath. Sarah got her a necklace and she is strangling her mother while putting the necklace on. For a cake Lisa decided that she wanted a banana cream pie. Sarah figured she wanted to put a whole bunch of candles on the pie but the flames kind of took over and melted the all the whipped cream. I Lisa was scared to blow on them. After the pie Lisa decided that she wanted to clean the house. Go figure. It is a tradition that you can do anything you want on your birthday (within reason of course) but this was nuts. Oh well, what can you do. I tried. I can tell you, I won't be cleaning the house on my birthday. All the kids gave her a phone call and so she spent most of the day on the phone. Ben and Sharley pulled in around ten tonight and he had a big bouquet of flowers for her.

Happy 29th my dear. Again.

Florida has more lightning strikes than any other state.

looks like the day was fun, despite the loss of the cream!

I knew that piece of trivia, you have to be really careful there!
