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.
