Today is my step-mother Mary’s birthday. I tried to call her at home, but just got her voice mail, so I sang “Happy Birthday” into her answering machine, tried her cell phone and sang the song again, man I hate singing that song. Then I turned to the Internet and sent her an email birthday card from my favorite free animated birthday card web site, and I posted on her Facebook wall. That’s all I can do from here, since she moved to Florida, it’s not like I can drive over to her house with a present anymore. So, Mary, here’s one more shot at letting you know that I’m thinking about you and want you to have a really Happy Birthday today!
Happy Birthday Candles

The family is making plans to celebrate my father’s 65th birthday come May. It promises to be a shindig and I look forward to being there, seeing all the family that are invited and that darn well better show up along with numerous family friends that we have gotten to know and love throughout the years.
People will be coming from all over the country, even a few that are overseas are expected to make an appearance, it should be a fabulous time for all that attend. The only problem that I see is finding the perfect gift to give to my Dad on his special day. The only thing that I can come up with is finding something boat/fishing related.
Dad has always loved boats, fishing is his passion, but he has all the fishing equipment that he could ever need or want to keep him happy with all that. My sister has suggested that we kids all go in together and get him some of the new HID Go lights for his favorite fishing boat. He has been really talking it up about these Go lights all year and she has found a good deal on them online. If I can’t come up with any other idea’s in the next month or so I guess I’ll go ahead to commit to them, I know he will enjoy them and all, it’s just that I really wanted to do something on my own this year for some wacky reason.

As I have mentioned before, my wife is very talented with her imagination and with her hands. She lives and breathes for her recycled arts and crafts that she has such a knack with. She enjoys turning “one person’s trash into somebody else’s treasurer” as the old saying goes. While I’m on the Internet she is usually right in the next room working on her numerous projects, which works out quite well for both of us.
She uses a lot of her crafts for the various and numerous gift giving occasions that come each and every year. Right now she is working on how to turn a piece of wood and a handful of finger machine handles into a ring holder, or to hold and display necklaces or bracelets, something that a lot of people enjoy as a gift. A gift that was hand made, nice looking and useful, in my eyes are the best gifts ever.
Last year she put a lot of her recycled arts and crafts online that she enjoys sharing with friends and family as well as Face Book and lord knows where else. We have learned to check with Mom before throwing certain items that she might want or need, it just might be just what she was looking for.
My wife has been thinking about getting some new window boxes for our house this spring. When we first bought this house it already have several window flower boxes on some of the windows and we’ve used them throughout the years to help the house looking cozy and inviting. One of the things that she likes to do with a window box is to not just use it for traditional flowers but also to use them to decorate through out the different holiday seasons. For example she used pine garlands and holly with small white twinkle lights in them for last Christmas. Next month you can be sure to see some type of Easter decorating going on, possibly some mini Easter Eggs and some multicolored mini twinkle lights and whatever she feels like getting into.
When she was decorating them back before Christmas, we noticed that they were starting to rot. The old boxes are made of wood and are quite old. So I agreed that come spring we’d replace them with some new ones. It wasn’t until she started looking on the Internet for some new ones that I realized that there are so many different styles to choose from! I’m going to have her pick out the ones she wants and I’ll handle the rest.

It looks like Ann Romney made a fashion statement on the Tonight Show last night and the whole world is trying to figure out just what that particular statement was. LOL! Personally I think she is too old to be wearing such an outfit and it certainly doesn’t flatter her figure, but it isn’t the clothes that people wear as far as I’m concerned, it’s what is going on in their mind, body and soul that matters.
