Smell those shrimp ... they're beginning to boil.

     Go Pa Paw, it's your Birthday, we're gonna party like it's your Birthday, we're gonna - oh excuse me, got a little carried away there for a minute ...

     Today is my Dad's 67th Birthday, yikes 67 - not exactly a young whipper snapper any more is he?

     I have 2 Dad's <--- click this one is {{{Al}}} my Step Dad, the man married to dear old Mom. He is one of 11 children and they grew up near by in the Fort Lauderdale area.

     Over the years his brothers and sisters have been moving away one by one and are now spread all over the USA. Today Ronny and Donny (the youngest set of twins) came with a huge horse trailer to pick up Linda (sister) to take her to Mt Dora  to live near them.

     I'm sure the move will be good for her but that only leaves one other brother Cecil close by. We had a lovely shrimp boil this afternoon to celebrate both Dad's 67th and Linda's going away. It was fun and Mandy fell in love with L.B. the Chihuahua, isn't he the cutest?

     LB's dad Donny is fighting cancer like a Trojan, love and prayers for him every single day.

     8 more years until Dad turns 75, that's when they all get together for a huge celebration in honor of each others 75th Birthday <--- click.

                         

   Cool platter there Birthday-boy!

Come on, 67 is young.  As you know I celebrated 50 this year. My doctor told me that I need to figure out what I am going to do with the next 30 years of my life.
