Another Year Older

We went to the market the other day to do some food shopping. When we got to the check out aisle, there was a family in front of us. They were almost finished packing up their groceries. The cashier said to us, "Today is her birthday." We looked at the adorable child in the shopping cart seat and asked, "Is today really your birthday?" She absolutely beamed with joy. Oh yes, it was her birthday. She flashed four fingers when we asked her how old she was. Her mother said, "No, honey, you're this many years old," and she held up three fingers. We were all smiling and delighted by this momentous occasion. It gave us an idea for Roger's birthday. He's 71 today!



Happy birthday, Roger!

  23. That is too cute (Roger AND the idea!) I may have to steal that idea, at some point when I actually can acknowlege I'm getting closer to S.S. than I care to admit. (Denial can be a wonderful thing at times.) Happy Birthday Roger! Hope you have a wonderful year ahead.
