So Long, Farewell...Auf Weid...um, yeah

To you and you and YOU! [Think "Sound of Music" please]. :D

We are off on yet another GREAT adventure.  But if I left without sharing with you a birthday wish my lovely husband received today, his 56th birthday, I wouldn't be able to sleep. ::slightly exaggerating::

One of his football buddies emailed him with the following:

"Congrats on your birthday Pooldad.  You're now officially older than the speed limit."

He didn't think it was that funny.  I have to say Tadpoles I laughed so hard I pee'd my pants.  It's all in the delivery I suppose, but dang - I am still laughing.

To be fair - I was awfully good to him today.  I sent him off to work with warm kinklins' and a birthday cake for him [and to share with the crew] not to mention his pick for his lunch and dinner:

We leave tomorrow and unless I can find my MiFi or write up a bunch of auto posts you won't be hearing from us for 9 days!  No worries.  If we survive the 100+ degree heat it will be a nice second honeymoon.

Yes, that does say honeymoon. WOOT! [and it should actually say "first" - we never had one before. :)]

Oh, did I neglect to mention the kids have other plans?
Yeppers.
This picture pretty much represents our week between Tuesday and Friday nights next week. heehee



Happy Birthday to my oh'so handsome husband and thank you so much for a wonderful 17 years on our wedding anniversary tomorrow. I love you so much more than you know or that I can ever hope to show you.  You are the reason God keeps me here. Thank you for taking care of me and loving me sweetheart.


As for you guys, Tadpoles, try to keep the mischief and mayhem to a minimum until SkippyMom comes back, 'kay?

See ya' on the flipside gang!

ETA: 9:15 pm - we just lost power again. Sigh. Wish us luck gang. :)

Happy Birthday to your husband and Happy Anniversary to you both.

Hope you have a wonderful time. I think the birthday wish is terribly funny, since I think there are probabably only a handful of western states that have a speed limit higher than my age It's all relative.

Happy birthday to Poolday for yesterday. He really is a keeper, isn't he?! I really do love your little family, and think you are an inspiration to us all. Have a super duper honeymoon my friend. How wonderful. Look forward to seeing you when you get back. Hugs xx Lovely photo of the two of you by the way. Your hair looks great.

Happy for the two of you. Have a wonderful time! Can't wait to hear all about it, (but not every detail)

Peace

CWMartin said...

Have a great time, you two, you deserve it. Just remember the kids will be there when you get back...

Well dang...you've probably already left by now so there is no use making some observations that could be naughty if a person has a dirty mind...not that I'm saying you do, but I'm not saying you don't either. Maya Angelou might "know why the caged bird sings" but I know why Skippy grins. ;-)

Have a wonderful time!

I'll try, but Mischief is nagging me that he wants dinner and Mayhem is running a muck outside in his underwear...

Have a great time...
