Happy Birthday to My Son!

Isn't it funny how when you go on a vacation, once you get back from that vacation you feel like you now need a vacation to recover from the vacation that you were just on?

That's how I'm feeling at the moment but there's simply no time to just kick back and lounge around the house as there are things that need to be done such as grocery shopping (Amanda seems to think we actually need food in the house!), finding a Mother's Day present for my mom, putting together the last of the pictures from my vacation, and making potato salad for a cook-out I'm going to on Sunday at Jason & Amy's for a late celebration of Jason's birthday.

Speaking of birthdays, it was 27 years ago today Sgt Pepper taught the band to play ... uhm, no wait, I got sidetracked by random Beatles' lyrics! ... That wasn't what I wanted to say! ... It was 27 years ago today that I gave birth to my first child and only son - Michael.

MichaelLooks like he should be a bouncer on the Jerry Springer Show, doesn't he?? Actually he may look all tough and mean but he isn't really and in spite of the fact that he always said he was never going to get married and have kids, he's done a darned fine job with both his stepson Christopher and his own personal version of the Energizer Bunny - Mathew.

Mathew and ChristopherMike and Laura, his wife, should be stopping by later on tonight to pick up his birthday present that I got in California (where he was born by the way!) on their way to see the new Speed Racer movie so perhaps I'll pick up a birthday cake while I'm out and about getting those groceries Amanda seems to think we need! After all, what's a birthday without cake - right, Miss Bee??

Help yourselves to a virtual slice - there's coffee around here somewhere, too - while I go take care of some errands. I'll be back later with more pictures from my evening at Cancun with Katherine and Sandee and other assorted stuff!


  1. oboy! cake!!! i mean, happy birthday linda's son!

    smiles, bee

  2. I love the new pic of Michael. He & Ron (my son) still look like brothers! Those shaved heads and red beards are impressive, no? Is it too late for them to do the WWE tag team thing? They still seem to think alike too--right down to the "I'm never going to get married thing". Right, eh Grandma?

    You've done good, girl; you've given two beautiful young women & one very special young man to the world. I hope they'll always own the knowledge of just how gifted they are, and that you will forever own the wonder of what you have accomplished. Nurturing a young life all the way through to a happy & productive adulthood is among the finest accomplishment anyone can achieve.

    Happy 27th to Michael and Happy Birth Day (you were there too..remember?) to one of the best Moms I know. And thanks for the chocolate cake--it's just what I needed today!


    I didn't realise until I read this that you had a son Linda, I just thought you had the two girls.
