They say it's your birthday!
A few weeks ago it was my birthday. I'm just getting around to posting it. It was my first birthday too. It's been a tradition for years that a bag from McDonalds comes to the house, and I got to experience this yummy treat—a whole hamburger! Mom got her treat—sweet tea—she's from the south. Dad takes the pickles out of the hamburgers even though they touch the meat (he's a vegetarian). Cali and Cookie didn't wear the party hats on this occasion. They will on their birthdays I'm sure. I guess they're done with the props or either they're too old to participate, but they got hamburgers! Mom doesn't like us all standing around groping for hamburgers, so Cali was outside which explains why she didn't have her birthday hat on. Cookie was hanging out with us, but she won't keep her hat on so it wasn't worth trying to keep it on. Betty's hat hung onto one ear. Mine sat perfectly on my big head.

Of course little Betty got some hamburger and a finger to go with it. Mom's been working on the word "easy" with her. She's starting to get it since mom's fingers are somewhat valuable. Mom had chicken pieces too. She didn't share those. After a while the food was gone, the party was over, and Betty was getting quite bored as you can see. Yep, that's her yawning.

Then as fast as the festivities began, it was over. Another birthday came and went. I joined the league of adult dogs. No longer the puppy...even though I'm still called "boy man" the emphasis should be more on man I think. I can't rely on the excuses that puppies can get away with. I have to be responsible for my do not mark everything, don't get caught gathering "readings" from my sisters (go with the first image in your mind), and finally, keep all four feet on the ground at all times. There's rules here...ignore the estrogen.

love always, Miles ^..^
