Ish Ya Berfday...

Lots o' special days to celebrate in TBF world right now...

Yesterday:

My MOM turned 60-something. She and my dad are on their way to Basel right now as I type. American Airlines called my sister's house just before they were all set to leave her house for the airport at 1:00 p.m. in order to catch a 4:55 flight from O'Hare to London. The flight ended up being changed to 8:00 p.m., so they'll be here at 4:20 this afternoon instead of 11:15 this morning. I slept until 9:00 a.m., and I feel good. They won't!

JOHN turned fiddy something. Yes John, it was YOUR birthday yesterday. Sorry, majority rules!

DIANA and COLM (sister and bro-in-law) celebrated their 14th wedding anniversary. DAMN! We buy gifts for each other for 5-year celebrations which means we have to buy them an anniversary gift next year. Now that I think about it, my sister turns forty this December...which means I have to buy her a gift this December...DOH!

THE JEEP was purchase seven years ago yesterday, and its not looking too shabby since it barely has over 40,000 miles on it.


Today:

Jo the mom-in-law turns 70-something today. She's not looking too shabby either!


GETTIN' OLD! Um...the Jeep, that is.

updated later: I just saw that it's Kirk and Gretchen's anniversary TODAY! Too much excitement for TBF. Something's gotta go...I guess I'll have to get rid of the Jeep!

I think I saw you as you were on the way to the airport to pick up your parents... but why would you be driving through our neighborhood to get there? Anyway, you didn't see me (or maybe you didn't recognize me pushing a baby stroller), and I couldn't get your attention, but I have to say that you looked very intense behind the wheel, almost as if you were in a hurry. It was about 3:45. I hope you made it there in time!

Gretchen - I was on mailbox duty at one of your neighbors. I brought in their mail, and then I went to Coop. So, I guess I was in a hurry trying to cram in two things so close to my parents' arrival.
I did make it on time to the airport even though their flight arrived fifteen minutes early.

40K on the jeep makes me jealous, although around here, you really don't get too many kms on cars. P's car is something like a 1993 VW Golf and besides getting some major work it has something like 130K on it!

So much going on...

I think I'm missing Switzerland tonight.
