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

Leighann said...

Happy Birthday to the wife! Sometimes pizza and cake are all you need!

buffalodickdy said...

DogB- Yep, it's the Goob... Libra- but when people used to ask what sign I was born under, I would say "Schlitz"...
leighann- Thanks! And it was quite enough- with old stories of humorous happenings from the past...

That pizza looks far better than the chicken strips I had last night! Happy birthday to your wife!

pinknest said...

Shame on you not having that card ready first thing Buff!

If Mrs Buff wanted Pizza then you did right getting her pizza.

I hope the broken tooth wasn't anything to do with rock cakes you made? ;)

Urban Vegan said...

Happy B'day, Mrs. Buff. What a gorgeous cake.

Michelle Ann said...

I love birthday celebrations at home... We may have to do the pizza thing next time.

Bina said...

That pizza looks REALLY good! Your wife is lucky.

And Happy Birthday ... Wife??

dana- Chix strips can be as bad as they can be good! Hot sauce, blue cheese can cure cancer- I bet!
Pink You are the perfect blend of simple and elegant! You would fit in anywhere- the sign of true class!
Ake- I am an amazing man, not a perfect one! Who tries harder than me?
UrbanV- Thanks so much... son picked out cake and paid for it! A first, to be sure..
michelle- Home is good... no driving, no lousy service, no dealing with people that don't know it's your day- and yours alone!
Bina- Pizza was killer!Oh, it's OK, you can call her the Goob... we all do!

Vodka Mom said...

Jeff B said...

Happy Birthday Mrs Buffalo.

Tanya Kristine said...

Jen said...

How nice of all you boys to pamper her on her special day : )

Romi said...

Sounds like your wife had a nice birthday. The pizza looks delicious and the cake does too. Glad you found the card.

buffalodickdy said...

VodkaM- Sleeping is something she is pretty good at!
Jeff- Thanks, she enjoyed the day..
Tanya- No, it was the baby animal special: Veal, lamb, and squab.. heeheehee...
jen- Yeah, they're better at spoiling Mom than me!
romi- She wasn't mad, but I was for hiding in a new place!

TavoLini said...

oooh, pizza and chocolate cake? My favorite foods :)

Happy Birthday to Mrs. Buff :)

Sornie said...

I agree. A birthday is always better than being dead. Unless someone makes you wear a birthday hat. THen it's sort of a toss-up.

buffalodick said...

T-L, Thanks! Who says nobody in the Depression- Era Michigan can't have fun...
sornie- Wearing a silly hat is demeaning, but not life threatening.. In another 10 years, you will be a person who many will listen to..

Insane Mama said...

You coldn't find it...HAHA that's funny. I lose everything that I try to hide also. Happy Birthday to your wife.
In regards to your comment, It's MY parents house, they just let me live in it for free. Yep, I really do cut coupons and yep I really am dirt poor, but HAPPY!

MarmiteToasty said...

MarmiteToasty said...

ps.... I hid safely 80 quid ($160) in an envelope in a book on the book shelf once with the money for my sons saxaphone lesson.... I never did find it lol.... its probably still in one of the hundreds of books on me books case :) (this was about 8 years ago lol)

buffalodick said...

insaneM- I'll let you off this time, but think about the message you send to people that never had anyone rich to help them out!
Marmy- No one has ever punched me in the mouth! I'm at 12 attempts, no connects.. :)..Look for the money, or ask who saw you hid it!

Beth said...

wait a minute....your kid called and you didn't TELL him to???!!! Is he feeling well? Has someone snatched his body and didn't tell you?

buffalodick said...

Beth! Of all the parents that might have picked up on that, you were the first! You be a real person.. and you just showed it!

Maddy said...

I Do not envy you the dentist one little bit.

Glad you found the card. I'm always doing that, hiding things, but unlike you I rarely find them again, or at least probably not until a couple of years later when it's no longer relevant!

Best wishes
The 'girlie!'

Maddy said...

p.s. Forget the pizza, we could do with more details on the cake!
Cheers

Anndi said...

So glad she had a wonderful birthday!

A good hiding place is in your sock drawer...

Pizza and cake... a meal fit for a Queen! Works for me!

Roger said...

Pizza is the best way to say Happy Birthday!

buffalodick said...

Maddy- Actually went well!
anndi- My wife is short so I hide things "higher"..
rog- Would you believe I made one last night too?

Mona said...

It seems that Everyone in America seems to have fallen in Love with Pizza. To them, Pizza is the Ultimate!

buffalodick said...

mona- It is quick, delicious, versatile , easy to obtain, and relatively cheap! All the reasons why Americans love this stuff!
