Happy Birthday to Grandma Nonee

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the World's Greatest Mom!

Dear Mom,

I wish we could be together today to celebrate our birthdays. I hope you're having a wonderful trip and we will see you very soon! Thank you very much for the birthday money you sent me. Like you suggested, I bought a new pair of skates at the used skate store in Findlay on Saturday. Believe it or not, they were sold as used for $10.00, but they are brand new and would have been about $40 at a sporting goods store! They'd never even been sharpened. That cracked me up as they sharpened them for free. (It's $10.00 to get them sharpened at the rink.) They may not be the fancy mold-to-your-feet kind Shayla has, but they are 100% better than the ones I'd been wearing. Oh, you remember those skates.....they were YOURS 30 years ago! And they served me well for many years too. Thanks, Mom! Would you like them back now?! Hee Hee! I hope Joe spoils you on your birthday too!

Love, Angela

P.S. Laura walked over a piece of chocolate cake last night for my birthday while I was at work. When I came in they told me what that sweetie did, but they also said she didn't think I'd be able to eat it all because it's so rich. I only laughed and said, "Now Laura knows me better than that!" It was absolutely delicious, but she was right. It was so rich I could not eat it all so I have left overs for tonight. Today one of the teachers (Ellen) is bringing a turtle cheesecake from Sam's Club to celebrate my birthday at lunch. (I'm thinking why wait until lunch....we're all there early. How about for breakfast?! Hee hee) I hope Christi gives you a little birthday surprise today: a beautiful sunrise, a stray animal cutting across your path, or something that makes you laugh. I'm going to be on the look out for my present from her today! Bye, mom!
