...or rather it WAS yesterday. Today is Ned's birthday. We're seven years and one day apart.
This was one of the best birthdays ever. It was Clemson football homecoming and even though they played an AWFUL game, there was tailgating, dinner out, cake and much singing of Happy Birthday to ME! Lorelai even pulled a fast one...she got an extra game ticket and Legare drove all the way from Chapel Hill to see me.
Poor Hank...it's hard for him to keep a secret but he did a good job UNTIL we're sitting in traffic on our way to the game. I looked over in the other lane and saw a familiar car...I said, "Gosh, that looks just like Legare's car." Hank didn't say anything. Then I said, "And you know...it has a North Carolina license plate..." Hank said, "Oh "*@(*&^%$*$#." I felt kind of sorry for him...
Now I ask you...what were the chances that with 82,000 plus people headed to that game, we would be in the lane of traffic beside the big surprise?
Unfortunately, my camera battery was dead so I didn't get photos, but Lorelai did and as soon as she sends them to me I'll share. It was a noon game so we had bagels with assorted cream cheeses, fresh fruit, donuts, and mimosas. Yum! When we visited with our friends at their tailgate after the game, I was greeted by my next door neighbor with a Clemson themed birthday cake. It was a good day and I felt incredibly special. I like feeling special.
We stopped by Ned's on our way home this afternoon and had another round of cake and singing.
I usually do a giveaway around my birthday but this year, well, you know how busy things are at school. It has been almost two weeks since I posted. I'm a bad blogger.
BUT...forgive me this time and humor me (for my birthday present from the blog world) with a De-Lurker day. Let me know you're out there and haven't forgotten about me. It's the least you can do for a OLD woman like me!!
