Today is the man's birthday!
He's a bazillion years old...
(I am a bazillion and four years old)
I remember telling Bear that he has "such pretty teeth"
when I met him.
This was before I found out he bought his teeth...
in which case there is no reason that they should not be pretty.
So much for first impressions huh?
I commented to him that he was a bazillion and one today.
"No I'm not."
I swear to you that he was a bazillion this time last year!
Then I did the math.
He's only a bazillion.
I decided that I would get him a black "Ducks" hat.
He's been grumping about not having one.
He has yellow ones and white ones and even green ones.
There are never enough hats.
Probably because there isn't enough hair!
That was kind of mean.
(Hanging head in shame... but giggling.)
We celebrated with cake made on Father's Day...
because two people cannot eat a 13x9 " cake in two days time.
(I made his favorite German Chocolate.)
Do you know that to make the pecan frosting costs about
$9 bucks these days?
This morning I made him stuffed orange bell peppers...
with broiled brown sugared yams...
and fresh green beans.
Its his all time favorite meal that I make.
Then, because he works graveyard shift...
we watched an episode of his show
"Crusade" which is a spin-off of Babylon 5...
after he had stuffed himself...
which of course made him fall asleep on the sofa.
Eventually I woke him up
and off he went to bed,
a happy man.
The rest of my day was spent weeding
And thinking about how glad I am that I found the man.
I can no longer imagine life without him.
My kids love him.
As you can see in the photo...
my grand kids love him too.
I can't help but think that I'm the one who got a gift.
Here's to many more beyond a bazillion!
