Today is Barbara’s mumble-mumble-th birthday. She says she doesn’t feel older than yesterday. Her plan is to stay inside on this blustery day and read a book by David Baldacci she just got from the library. We have no special plans, other than a nice home meal followed by her favorite from Nothing Bundt Cakes, which was picked up yesterday.

Happy Birthday, Barbara! Hope you enjoy many more!
Happy birthday to you, Barb.
Have the best of days!
We’ve spent the day pinned down waiting for a guy who said he’d be here between 8 and 5. It’s almost 5:15. Do these people EVER come in the early part of the time window?
After 7:00, still not here and no contact. BAH.
Happy birthday, Barbara! And happy being married to such a wonderful woman, Rick!
Right you are, Jerry
Happy Birthday to Barbara, and I hope the day and the cake was good, omitting the part about the guy who never showed up.
Thanks! The roast was excellent, the Bundt cake the same.
Tomorrow Rick will be Having A Word with the Aptive people about the no-show…
Hope it was a good day, despite the no show. Roast and bundt cake, can’t go far wrong.
