Tubby got some good gifts this year. First were two tartan hats inspired by his blog friend Winston Wilbur's excellent personal style.
Winston Wilbur rocking a wonderful tartan hat. What a style inspiration.
Of course you can't just have hats on a birthday you need toys too, and Tubby received a Star Trek Red Shirt Dog Toy. I love his slightly clueless expression a true red shirt.
Of course we also had to take pictures of the birthday boy with Mom and Dad.
When we got home it was time for cake and that's where the mischief came in. I bought Tubby a giant birthday bone cake and on the way home I dropped the cake and it broke in to a ton of pieces in the bag, before the drop it was truly a beautiful cake. This is the re-assembled look:
Since it was my 36th birthday on Wednesday and I hadn't had my cake yet, I had mine on Saturday too. A key lime pie from Two Little Red Hens. Since John brought this one home and he is more careful then I it didn't get dropped and it looked pretty and tasted delicious.
Of course the best present is to still have Tubby with me and still in good health. I know he is quite an old chap now, as are Norbert age 11 and Ping age, and even Bob at age 7 is no youngster. I know I need to prepare myself for the inevitable and also to make sure to appreciate and be grateful for every moment, but I hope and pray every day that we will all have more birthdays together.
