this is the kind of birthday that worries me much more than 30 ever did. we are nearing 40 now! body deterioration age (to hear anyone over said age tell it). this is frightful! but i digress.
i collected a few beers dave hadnt yet discovered as his gift. X suggested a cinnamon cake for dear ol dad, so i found a recipe that fulfilled that requirement. X donated her artwork as an additional gift. and the universe sprinkled on an un-healthy dose of death resistant germs. the aforementioned germs later got passed on to the male infant and father and son went into a 2 month long cough and congestion spiral that made me want to tear my hair out. it kept fading and resurging, fading, resurging. not cool. thankfully Y was pretty patient about his condition, father...not so much. this does not bode well for the years when i become this mans caregiver. but i digress yet again. happy thoughts. um...happy birthday dave!!! and many more!
(his health was already fading when this picture was taken)
