Birthday Supper- Just Take-out Pizza, And A Cake!
My wife had a good, if a little odd, birthday. First, I had gotten a card the day before, and hid it. Pretty darn well, I might add- because the morning of her birthday, I couldn't find it! Used my deductive reasoning skills to find it about 2hrs. after she had left the house... Great card... It was one those singing cards, doing Martha and The Vandellas song "Nowhere to Run" (Nowhere to hide")! Yeah, we are at an age where a birthday is a mixed blessing... better than being dead I guess..
We decided a delivered pizza would make it easy on everyone concerned. We opted for the best in this part of the world- Fred's Pizza! Founded by an Italian immigrant, Fred was a true American character... Federico Pizzo was actually his name. To complain about a pizza you got was to hear him say, "I maka pizza same way every day- I give you free calendar".. The pizza was great, but should have gotten a bigger one! Son picked up a cake, per my request, which was good! He also brought flowers, which his mom always appreciates.. Our son called from Kansas City(unprompted by me!)and they talked for awhile. Her present from me was early- that ring I bought her on Labor Day week-end, so that was it! Today it's to the dentist for a broken tooth repair incurred over the week end
