Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday sweet Pogo, Happy Birthday to you.
It's quite gray and soggy wet outside, but it is still a good morning. Today my little fellow is eight years young. It won't be a big party, but we will have hamburger cake and ice cream. Oh, and let's not forget the presents! Aside from his new stroller which he loves, I got him a couple of new shirts and another little toy.
Pogo has enough toys for a small army of doggies. He doesn't know how to play with them, but he does enjoy moving them from place to place every once in a while. Pretty soon though, we will have to bag up some of the older toys to make room for more new toys.
I know it sounds as though we all spoil my little guy, but... well...it's awfully hard not to spoil him. He is just so darn cute and tiny. I have to share a funny story. The other day when Pogo and I were out in the car, it was so nice out that I opened his window almost all the way down. Pogo was in his car seat in the back seat, and wearing a harness and safety strap. I looked in my rear view mirror and saw this tiny little face barely poking out the window. His eyes were shut, and he was enjoying the wind blowing the hair on his face. I had to laugh. It was just too adorable.
I will try to get some new photos later today of my birthday guy. Hopefully I can squeeze in a nap at some point because I have to come back to work tonight. And hopefully, the Mrs will be in a much better mood. I'm not sure what bit her yesterday, but last night she was just horrible.
Friday afternoon, Joe did plant the lilac bushes, the chrysanthemums and some of the other flowers. Here's a photo of Joe planting one of the lilac bushes, plus a close up and the label from the flower pot. These lilacs will bloom again in late summer.
I also took a photo of the green afghan, which is almost finished. Just 26 more rows to go. (It is over the back of the chair, and is much longer than what shows.) However, it is too big to carry to work, so last night I started on the blue afghan. As soon as I have a section with both colors done, I'll take a photo of it.
Less than half an hour to go now till I can go home. I'll have to start packing up my things and put them in the car. This is the best part of my job....going home. Feeling that way, I know that this is the right year to retire. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
