Birthdays and A Little Matchmaking

March 27, 2009 at 7:25 am 19 comments

I have memories of only two birthday parties from my childhood.  Since my birthday is just one week before Christmas, it must have been tough to get such a thing organized.  One was when I was young enough to feel miffed that I couldn’t win any of the games, the other was the year I turned 13 and my parents flew my friends from Maryland in to our new house in Pennsylvania. 

Youngest grandgirl, Ayla, will not suffer such a fate.  Her mom is aayla-birthday-party kindergarten teacher that waited a very long time for a baby.  At her second birthday there was a bounce house to share with her friends and cousins.  Not to mention her snazzy ensemble honoring her favorite Sesame Street character, Abby Cadabby.ayla-second-birthday  Then there’s that dance thing she got to do with her very cool older half sister.  ayla-presents1No birthday would be complete without presents and there were plenty of those too.

Yup, Ayla is one lucky kid, I know because I raised her mother.

ayla-with-michelleWho just happens to be single, by the way.  So if you have sons or grandsons, between 27-32, gainfully employed, must love children and go to church…e-mail me and let’s hook ’em up. 

I’m kidding Michelle!

    Well, Quilly, I hope someone does! Look at the success you and OC have had. I’ll be right over to read your short story.

    Nessa – Thanks, more importantly, they’re nice.

    LJ – Recently single. She was married for ten years to a guy who thought he was Peter Pan. They were divorced last fall.

    Wish I could oblige but I have neither sons nor grandsons! And funny, just last night a friend of mine was making a similar lament, only she was looking for a girl for her boy… Now, there’s a thought… Only he’s in London…

    They are both quite lovely!

    Good luck with the matchmaking… the song is stuck in my head now.

    Matchmaker, matchmaker, make me a match,
    Find me a find, catch me a catch…
    la la la…

The free-lance writer is the person who is paid per piece or per word or perhaps. (Robert Benchley)

Welcome to My Neighborhood!

Shortly after I learned to use a spoon, I learned to use a pencil. Crippled by shyness as a child, I found that the things I couldn't say out loud, I could say with a pen, and then a typewriter. The shyness was overcome with education and age...but the need to write has never left me.
