Saturday Smile: He Doesn’t Look a Day Over 21

Last night, Court and his family came over to see his Aunt Bec, and to enjoy a celebratory seafood boil she prepared in honor of his birthday. He turned 39 on Thursday, and ascertains that 39 sounds a LOT older than 38. I think it sounds darn young, though it is true that having a son approaching 40 is a bit disconcerting.

We had a wonderful, wonderful evening. We ate the seafood boil in the traditional way, off of the newspapers on the table……

Admittedly, this was puzzling to Cole, but he rolled with the punches. We laughed and ate and licked our fingers and assured Cole that the key lime cake was coming soon……
Cole and Mylee helped me put every candle I had in the house onto the cake, and led the way as we paraded into the room with the candles blazing. He blew them out in one try!……

Happy birthday to my much-loved son, and a good weekend to you all.
