Birthday cake is the best kind of cake

I don't know why birthday cake tastes better than regular cake, it just does. Our good friend Jeff loves lions so I made him this for his surprise party on Monday night. He knew about the barbecue but didn't realize that we planned to celebrate his birthday...I think he thought most of us forgot ;)

Just the six of us again

Company is good. It's nice to see family and good to catch up. It's even better when the company is the kind who gets their own food when hungry, pitches in to clean up and doesn't need to be entertained. I like that kind of company. 10 days is enough though. There's a saying about fish and relatives stinking after a certain number of days, I think it's three. Ben Franklin, I believe. Anyway, I don't think three days is enough for most visitors but 10 is probably a good limit. I'm washing bedding, towels, etc., trying to get my house back to normal. That's a subjective term ;)

Hope Bob has a good trip home on his motorcycle!

It was cute. Thankfully Papa was there with his camera, this is one of the few I got that worked.

Couple funnies

A wife was making a breakfast of fried eggs for her husband. Suddenly, her husband burst into the kitchen. 'Careful,' he said, 'CAREFUL! Put in some more butter! Oh my gosh! You're cooking too many at once. TOO MANY! Turn them! TURN THEM NOW! We need more butter. Oh my gosh! WHERE are we going to get MORE BUTTER? They're going to STICK! Careful. CAREFUL! I said be CAREFUL! You NEVER listen to me when you're cooking! Never! Turn them! Hurry up! Are you CRAZY? Have you LOST your mind? Don't forget to salt them. You know you always forget to salt them. Use the salt. USE THE SALT! THE SALT!' The wife stared at him. 'What in the world is wrong with you? You think I don't know how to fry a couple of eggs?' The husband calmly replied, 'I just wanted to show you what it feels like when I'm driving.'


Fifty-one years ago, Herman James, a North Carolina mountain man, was drafted by the Army. On his first day in basic training, the Army issued him a comb. That afternoon the Army barber sheared off all his hair. On his second day, the Army issued Herman a toothbrush. That afternoon the Army dentist yanked seven of his teeth. On the third day, the Army issued him a jock strap. The Army has been looking for Herman for 51 years.

June? Are you sure?

Wow, this year has been going by quickly for me. I am so happy to say that school is almost over. I know, I'm supposed to be excited for the beginning of school, not the end but man I'm tired. This getting up at 5am is getting really old. I won't have to get any kids up at 6:10 after Wednesday. Yep, that's right. I won't even have to leave the house before 8:35 or so. Well, except for special days like the day of my road test *gulp* which I am so not thrilled about. I'll let you know more about that when it's closer. I think I'm in denial though. So anyway, it's June and that is making me smile!
