Birthday Surprise.

Another year older... more gray hairs, added inches and memory loss but hey it's still a great sunny day. At least I'm able to write this.

Today at work the lady from our local grocery store brought me in a cake. She informed me that my grandson, Mikie, told his mommy "Boagie needs a cake today for her birthday." Seems Tracy didn't think she could bake it, fly and deliver it in the same day so she did the next best thing and called our only grocery store. They do not have a bakery but they do have frozen cakes. They even took the decorator gel (green, my favorite color) and wrote Happy Birthday Boagie on it. I was also told I needed to call the Jones family when I got my cake. I did and they sang Happy Birthday to me. Mikie then told his mommy they needed to come to my house to eat a piece of cake (if it was only that easy.)

An old friend of mine took me to lunch today. When I returned I checked my email and face book and there were so many good wishes from a lot of friends and family. I also have received several cards in the mail and hand deliverd. I guess it's ok to get older when there is such special people in your life. Thank you to everyone for your kindness.

Wish we could have been there to eat a piece of cake with you. Of course, Mikie would have insisted on candles so you may have had the Sigourney Firemen singing to you as well :-) JK We love you, Mom!!! Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday, Boagie!!! :) I've been sort of stalking your blog, waiting for you to post something new. ;) I want to know what life is like in Iowa...I am intrigued that you have one grocery. Hope your birthday was special! You have an awesome family, that's for sure. :)
