Last week, we celebrated my son, Ethan’s, 16th birthday. Man, time sure flies! It seems like only a few years ago, I was 16 and running barefoot around Bay’s Mountain Park, throwing water on any boy that would stand still long enough for me to drench…anyhoo….Lona made him this German chocolate cake with four…yes, FOUR..cans of frosting~
It was quite yummy, even if you could only eat a small slice! He wanted money (of course) so he got that, instead of the usual big party.
Ethan’s birthday is March 15th. Eden Rose’s birthday is March 16th! Ten years and one day apart~Boy, WHAT was I thinking???? She wanted her party at Chuck E. Cheese, and THAT was a blast (for her! haha)
We spent the weekend at the Bristol Motor Speedway for the Nascar Race, which was quite amusing. I must admit, I am not a huge fan of racing, per say…more like a huge fan of WRECKING! My main purpose while I’m there is to look for any telltale sign of smoke coming out from a car. Now, don’t get me wrong..I don’t want to see a wreck like Dale Sr…but a good fender bender makes the tickets so worthwhile. I’m twisted. I know. My second purpose is to renew my faith that my life decision to NOT become a drunk is still a good, valid choice!!! People that drink excessively are idiots. Complete and utter idiots. Nuff Said…
Reporting on Farm life is the meshing of the baby flock into the mature flock. I am happy to report that, after day one, there is nothing to report. The baby chicks just wandered around the coop, pecking around. The big chickens, for the most part, ignored them completely. We will know more in the morning, since this will be the first NIGHT all of them spend together with no wall to separate them. I sure hope we don’t open the coop to 25 wounded babies tomorrow!
Pancake the Pig is getting fat and sassy. I have been opening the windows during the day to let the Spring weather in, and have been noticing some strange smells wafting by. David will need to get that pig in the pasture VERY soon! That’s all I have to say about that.
And you can now congratulate me on posting to my blog so swiftly. I TOLD you that I would do better 😮
