bacon bouquet. I had planned on delivering the bouquet to his work mid-morning (just the time when he'd be getting a hankerin' for some), but it turned out that he had to work at another office an hour away. So, I presented the bacon bouquet to him along with his bacon, egg and cheese biscuits right when he got up. . All he said to me about the bouquet was, "You are so weird!!"
I thought about making a bacon card to go along with the bouquet saying, "You are the greatest thing since sliced bacon!" Instead, I made this black and white card:
While we were living in the Netherlands, the traditional celebration was to create a display outside someones home with a stuffed person (kinda looked like a scarecrow to me, something old and scary) and a sign to mark that the occupant was turning 50 years old. I think it had something to do with Abraham. It was like they publicly humiliated you! I thought about making an Abraham, but everyone else would've been really confused by it. So, I didn't do any decorating at all outside.
Randy's favorite cake is German chocolate. So, I made one from scratch for him.
|I completely forgot to get 50 candles, so we light as many as we had in the house.|

Remember the story a few days ago about my washing machine? Well, long story short, I called the big box store that I ordered the original washing machine from and cancelled my order. Instead, I went to a local, family-owned store. I am proud to say that I got about the same deal and as of this afternoon, this house has a fully-functional washing machine again. Who in their right mind would wait for a month for a back-order???
Only six more days till CONVENTION!!!
