Thir

 





Tomorrow is Little Buddy's 13th birthday.  As I have been through the teen route twice before I have decided the word, "teen," is no longer allowed in my house.  So Little Buddy is now to be, "thir,"years old and believe me he is not having that and tells me I am crazy.  

It has been a weekend of fun.  Little Buddy wants to be a drag racer when he grows up so we went to visit the Don Garlits Drag Racing Museum, in Ocala, Florida yesterday.  It was actually quite interesting even for a non drag racing fan like myself.  Don Garlits was the greatest of all time in the drag racing department and he seems like he was/is a really wonderful man.  He is 92 and raced even last year. 

We went to the beach this morning but got chased away by incoming storms.  Big brothers and their partners are coming over this evening for pizza, cake and presents.  And we got to chat with Aunt Claudia and Uncle Don this afternoon, Uncle Don and Little Buddy share a birthday.

So if you are going to be, "thir," years old this is the way to do it.

Happy Birthday Little Buddy, you bring such joy into my life!

Happy 13th Birthday to Little Buddy who is adorable!!! I watched a movie called "God Blessed the Broken Road" last Tues with friends at Bible study. The lady met a man that was preparing for a car race and did a couple car races. He helped make young children in grade school make their on race cars and how one girl designed her car with her dad's Army sticker. Interesting movie!! Hugs and blessings, Becky
