A Wonderful Birthday Surprise

Kaleb, nephew Kasey, seester Carolina and BBILFreddie at my birthday party on Saturday, February 26, 2011 at Sug's house

 Sug made my most favorite, in the whole wide world, Whacky Chocolate Cake for my birthday, and I decided to go to her house for the day.  Imagine our surprise, and delight, when our nephew, Kasey, called that he and a buddy (Kaleb) were in a neighboring city for a concert (the night before) and would like to come by for a visit.  We had the most wonderful time hanging out with Kasey and Kaleb, eating tuna salad sandwiches, teaching them how to eat grapefruit like an orange LOL, wolfing down my deeeelicious birthday cake, kicking truck tires (and I love to punch buttons and pull knobs in other people's vehicles :D), and capping it all off with pizza before the boys and I hit the road on separate journeys home.  A huge thank you, Sug and Freddie, AND Kasey and Kaleb, for making my birthday such a wonderful, special 55th birthday!!           I have no idea why this post ended up spaced so wonky----but, oh well......    :)
Kaleb, Kasey, Freddie and moi

Real Estate Shopping



The Bluebirds are defending their condo rentals from the Swallows who came home yesterday to check out the availability and renovations on the Spring rentals.  :)  I always do a happy dance when the Swallows return.  

Just an update---I have 5 bluebird boxes that the Bluebirds and Swallows skirmish over each Spring.  :D  I need to invest in some more 'rental houses', huh?  :D
