Yesterday was my dad’s 90th birthday!!
I called in the morning and my mom said he was already in the workshop repairing a pie safe for someone in the community where they live.
And since it was my birthday recently I had to share the present my sister Paula MADE for me!
You could tell she was excited about this because her birthday actually precedes mine by a couple of weeks and usually, (based on years and years of experience) she holds my birthday gift for ransom until I send her gift to her.
But not this year! Nope, this year she sent mine out despite the fact that hers had not yet been…um…found mailed. (I found it though!….I haven’t mailed it but I found it!)
I have an ipad. I have kind of a love/hate relationship with it. I recognize it’s amazingness but I just cannot get in the habit of using it. It just seems like a really big iphone that isn’t actually a phone or a really small computer that isn’t actually a computer. And I feel awkward carrying it around.
It’s perfect! It’s even monogrammed!
I’m a lucky brother.
I should probably mail her gift to her now.
Of course Phebe’s birthday comes after mine and she, trusting soul, sent me some really clever tools to use on my trays but, like Paula, hers has not yet been found…mailed …made itself known to me*.
And keeping with the family theme I finally finished up my Celebrate Ohio Coaster Set. Columbus, Toledo, Cincinnati and Cleveland.
So Happy Birthday Dad! Thank you Paula! and Sorry Phebe!
*as I mentioned i n a previous post I either know exactly what to get you for a gift and it’s awesome or I have no idea whatsoever at all. There is no inbetween unfortunately
