Thing one: Happy birthday to my dearest friend. If I'd have known then what I know now, I'd have done the dance of joy on this day all those years ago. Of course it would have been interesting to see since I was all of 3 1/2 months old. I love you, Art! I hope you have a wonderful birthday!!
Thing two: In about a year & a half or so I will have a new sister-in-law!! Bubba popped the question to Beck shortly after they came up to visit last weekend. I've know for a while, but was sworn to secrecy until they had a chance to talk to her parents. That happened yesterday & I was given permission to shout it from the roof tops. I'm thrilled! Congrats you two! I love you!
