Granddaddy's Done It Again . . .

he's caught up with Mimi . . .

(Yes, that is pink icing & a pink candle on his cake ~ believe chef got confused!)
Today is Granddaddy's BIG birthday so now he and Mimi are the same age again!! Yaahoo!! If Granddaddy decides to retire, he'll be getting his little check from Uncle Sam before long, too. Wonder how that will make him feel?

Mimi wanted to give him a surprise birthday party; but there was no time when all of ya'll could come home and I certainly couldn't have a party without all the babies! So, instead, when we gathered at the CC last night to eat with our Wednesday night crew, Mimi got the chef to make Granddaddy a cake. Boy, was he surprised!! As our waitress placed the cake in front of him and we began to sing, he gave Mimi that evil eye look that says just wait, you're in trouble. I think he forgot about it by the time we got home, though.

Happy 62nd Birthday, Granddaddy!!
Bet you can't guess how Granddaddy is spending his birthday? Of course, you can; he's on the golf course with all his buddies. Maybe because it's his birthday, they'll let him win. I know he can't wait for all of the sweet little "Happy Birthday, Granddaddy" songs you'll sing to him tonight.
Granddaddy shares his birthday with a very special holiday ~
Veteran's Day

"A celebration to honor America's veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good."
Today we join Americans all across this great nation, as we salute and say a grateful "Thank You" to these men and women who have so selfishly given of themselves to protect us in time of war and time of peace, especially to our most favorite veterans, Pop and Pappaw. Wish we could do it in person!

Pop ~ U.S. Marine Corps

Pappaw ~ U.S. Navy

We also say another prayer for our sweet friend Lyle and ask for his safety for the next few weeks until his return from active duty brings him back home to little Emily.

Pause today to say Thank You to these brave men and women as you wish Granddaddy a happy birthday!
