His parents are planning a party with cake and all and will probably be inviting everyone they can think of to attend.
How silly! He’ll never know what’s going on!
But just to make sure, we’re going to attend anyway.
And take a present. If we can find something he doesn’t have. Maybe like a computer or motor cycle or something. He seemingly has everything else.
For his birthday, family members and other interested parties are being mailed an invitation with his photo on the front announcing his first birthday.
The photo was carefully selected to show off his first tooth (he now has two).
Get it? First birthday, one tooth? (And two dimples)
With so many grandchildren we also have two others with birthdays.
One is the youngest granddaughter and the other is her teenaged brother.
She celebrated on April 30, he on May 1.
She is six and he is 14.
And, all that make us . . . well, let’s just say we get the senior discount at restaurants.
The following news announcement was nice to hear:
“Kentucky Fried Chicken announced that all 5,500 of its U.S. restaurants have stopped frying chicken in artery-clogging trans fat. The company had said in October that it was switching to a new soybean oil believed to be less likely to cause heart disease.”
Man, are we glad to hear that. Now all we have to worry about are a few extra pounds.
Bring on the legs and wings!
If you haven’t already done so, check out the story on this week’s front page about a horse in the Derby. For the history buffs, the horse is named after a former slave from Trigg County and also has an owner with Trigg County connections.
With all that being said, we wonder if our neighbor next door at the office may lay down a $2 bet on Curlin.
Just for history’s sake, you understand.
