Thanks to all for the birthday greetings. Surly sent me a JibJab card that said that for a 24-hour period, everything revolved around me:
It was a very nice thought, but not exactly true! My husband and daughter both worked all day, and the older daughter was away on a trip. The good news: my dad was in town so we could celebrate Father’s Day and my birthday all in one. It was very nice. Except for the part when my brother forgot it was my birthday!! Bad, Bad Barry!!
My husband did “buy” me a lovely birthday gift:
Isn’t he thoughtful? The Myth: He knew I needed and wanted a new sewing machine. He spent hours and hours researching, and then combed the stores to find a brand new Janome 3160 QDC. The Reality: He heard the news as a fly-by report, “BTW, you got me a sewing machine for my birthday!” “Okay, Hon!”
He did buy the flowers . But, hey. I would much rather pick out my own sewing machine!!!
