Knock! Knock!

A little while ago the front doorbell rang and I caught a glimpse of nicely tanned and muscled male legs in brown shorts running back toward his big brown truck. In his wake was a fabulous little package:

Yay! Someone special sent me a birthday cake!

As I was waiting for best friend Susan to arrive so we could enjoy a ladies' lunch, I heard a knock at the door.

Thinking Susan was early, I ran to the front of the house.

No Susan.

It was God knocking.

At least it was his messengers in the form of Jehovah's Witnesses.

Oh, yeah.

How lucky can a girl get?

Like carpenter ants, Jehovah's Witnesses swarm about this time every year, right after they get all pumped up at their annual "Armageddon-Is-Near" convention. (I believe they've been gathering annually for about 125 years now. If they keep this up, eventually they'll be right about that end-of-the-world thing.)

Happy birthday.

I'll even spare you the song I normally sing to the missus. Okay, maybe just a few bars since everybody's asking:

The ole grey mare she ain't what she used to be
Ain't what she used to...

Wait, stop, please put down the knife.

I'm Late, I'm Late for a very important Date. Which seems to describe my life of late. Happy Birthday Chrissy.
