My Dad -- Shae's Pop-Pop -- turned 56. As per usual, we only had one novelty number candle. We do nothing better than going with the flow in my family. We had a small cookout birthday party for my Dad on Saturday, which is part of the reason we were out late. It was a great time: sliders and clams, sauteed broccoli and pasta salad, and of course delicious birthday cake.
So if you're keeping score at home, I am posting the "official" HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD! entry the day AFTER my Dad's birthday, because we had the party the day BEFORE. And people wonder why I can't keep my calendar straight, whether I am coming or going. At least we are always moving, never standing still.
And at least Shae and her Pop-Pop can always find ways to keep their cool.
