Happy Birthday, Terry! (Is it okay to mention that it’s your 60th birthday?)

Wednesday, March 21st, 2007

Today, March 22nd, is the birthday of my brother, Terry.  Here’s what I posted about Terry last year.

I can’t tease him too much about reaching the grand old age of 60 ’cause I’m only two years behind him.

I’m visiting my mother right now so I can be at Terry’s birthday party Thursday evening.  We’ll have a good time.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, TERRY!

Happy 4th Birthday, Sunshine!

Wednesday, March 21st, 2007

Today is Sunshine’s 4th birthday!  Wow!  It doesn’t seem possible.  She is such a delightful little girl.  I love being her Grandma Carol. 

Sunshine, I hope your birthday is the best in the world.  You’ve brought four years of SUNSHINE and happiness to a lot of people.  I love you.

Happy Birthday to my Mother!

Monday, February 19th, 2007

Today is my mother’s birthday.  My mother is a blogger – Ruthlace.  Last year I wrote a rather detailed post for her birthday.   Last year I wrote eighty-three things about my mother.  I won’t give away her age, but this year I could have written eight-four things about her.  Here is a photo of my mother and me – probably around 1952.

This next photo is of my mother as a young woman.

And this next photo was taken a few years ago – my  mother with my siblings and me.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MOTHER!

Happy Birthday to my Precious Stinkeroo

Sunday, December 31st, 2006

Today is my daughter’s birthday.  Larisa was born on December 31, 1974.  It’s hard to believe she is 32 years old.  Click HERE to read last year’s birthday post for her and see some photos.  Larisa is the absolutely best daughter imaginable – the best mother, the best friend, the best everything.

Happy birthday, Larisa!  You’re more precious to me than I could ever express!

Happy Birthday (Belated) to my Sister, Joan

Happy Birthday, Debi

Tuesday, November 14th, 2006

My younger sister, Debi, is celebrating her birthday today. Debi is two years younger than I am – which makes her . . . well, I won’t say.

My mother wrote about one of Debi’s early adventures here. And last year I wrote a birthday tribute to Debi here.

This photo of “Debi in a drawer” is indicative of our lives as children. Debi looks a little pitiful, but I think that’s the charm of the photo. There were seven children in our family – living on a preacher’s income. However, I don’t remember being poor at all. In fact, I remember a very rich and happy childhood. We had what we needed, and we had each other. Happy birthday, Debi!

I need a recipe for Coconut Cake

Friday, October 20th, 2006

Does anyone have a WONDERFUL Coconut cake recipe?  I have a couple, but I’m looking for one that is super moist – but easy to make.  Tomorrow is  my daughter-in-law’s birthday, and she wants a coconut cake for the family get-together.  I actually posted a coconut cake recipe once, but I wanted to try something new.  So, if you have a great coconut cake recipe, please send it to me!   THANKS!

Happy Birthday to my Precious Son

Thursday, October 5th, 2006

My baby – my precious Joey – is 28 years old today. Happy birthday, Joey! He was born at 3:50 p.m. on October 5, 1978. My, how the time flies past. Sunday evening we will have a family get-together to celebrate his birthday. He has asked me to bake a chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting. Yum! Can’t wait! Joey and his wife moved into a new home last week – and it’s only about 5 -10 minutes away from where RT and I live. I’m very excited about that! Click HERE to read last year’s post and see photos of my sweet baby boy.

My One-Year Blogoversary

Sunday, September 17th, 2006

On September 17, 2005, I started The Median Sib. It’s hard to believe it has been one full year. Here are some stats for The Median Sib’s one-year birthday:

Number of posts: 716
Number of comments: 1330
Number of hours spent writing posts: ?? (lots more than one would guess from the content)
Number of readers: it varies from 50 – 200 a day – depends on what I write – not a lot readers by many standards, but I’m fine with my numbers. I’m not out to win a popularity contest.
Most comments for one post: 164 (my first post about Mary Winkler got a lot of people riled up!)
The category I write the most about: “That’s My Life”
The second most popular category: “Politics”

Important things that have happened in my life since I started blogging (implying NO correlation between blogging and the following events): I sold my townhouse, I moved in with RT, we picked out the plans for our dream house that we hope will be a reality soon, I joined Curves, I was invited to join The Cotillion, my granddaughter started kindergarten, I celebrated my 57th birthday, RT and I went to Alaska and got married.

Congrats to me for one year of blogging, and here’s to a second year. May it be a year of love, fun, insight, and peace.
