Sunday was Bob’s birthday, so we held a little celebration. Here are some pictures Nan and Eve took:
The invitations said “casual attire,” but no one was surprised when Elvira showed up in a fancy sequined onesie. Elvira just doesn’t know the meaning of the word “casual.”
Ralph and Edna were the entertainment committee. They contacted a local talent agency and auditioned several acts, but Ralph kept falling asleep, so Edna had to make the final decision without his help.
That’s how we ended up with this clown doing tricks on a tricycle.
Wally was in charge of the food, and it was really good. Unfortunately, Wally hadn’t planned for such a large crowd, and there wasn’t enough to go around.
Things got a little contentious.
Otto had to make an emergency trip to the deli to get more sandwiches, and he was pretty ticked off. He said Wally should have planned better. Wally said that he would have, if only certain birdbrains had had the decency to RSVP, as the invitations clearly indicated.
In an attempt to lighten the mood a little, Lavinia got up and warbled a few songs — “Rockin’ Robin,” “Fly Like an Eagle,” “Bird on a Wire,” and the theme from “Bye Bye Birdie.”
The audience’s response was not uniformly positive. Fortunately, Otto got back with more sandwiches just in the nick of time.
After lunch, Maxine led everyone in singing “Happy Birthday” to Bob.
You can tell from Bob’s expression how thrilled he was.
But then we had the biggest surprise of the day! Look who just flew in! It’s Great Uncle Arthur! And look what he brought with him…

If you’re on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive. —C. S. Lewis
thought for the day
Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is never putting it in a fruit salad.
