FINALLY, AFTER ALL THESE YEARS

It took 32 years of hard work and bribery, but it looks like it has all paid off. Grandma Lucy has finally decided to upgrade me to a full fledged, honest to goodness Grandson this birthday season. I mean, it took about 20 years just to go from "Danny's Kid" to "Friend". Oh, the joy! No more bullshit kiddie table seating outside on the porch in winter! No sir, full servings from a fresh dish of lasagna from here on out - not the mutilated, mushy leavings which remain after the higher ranking family members have had their way with it. Hooray!

Congrats on your status upgrade! Bet you still get the leavings of the limoncello though. No good digestivo for you. Nothing but sugar crystals.

She must have felt very strongly about sending you a card with tulips on it.

That is too adorable. I love the grandma-don't-care gifts. Chris's grandmother used to go into the attic and wrap up her old stuff and give it to me as Christmas presents. I have two mugs she got in Europe and a mini-maglight for my keychain. Best. Presents. Ever.

Oh, and happy birthday. Love ya <3

GOOD JOB!

It must be our year for cards. I got a birthday card from my sister this month. It must be the machete I've been bringing to family gatherings.

Happy belated Bday, Ty.

I've got your present, in my pants, as always.

"The Devil" said...

And as always, it's not much of a gift.

I'm sure Ty would like a Growler.

When GoGo lays down, it all goes to dick. Or so I've heard on the interwebz.

My day WAS full of sunshine. Thanks to you Spengy-poo.
