Turning 87

Caution: Poor quality photos ahead!

Hello Friends.

It has been a glorious weekend here in Ohio.  Today the sun is shining, the skies are bright blue, and there is a crisp freshness to the air.  It is an ideal fall weekend.  
Last weekend, my dad turned 87!  We gathered at my brother and sister-in-law's home for a potluck celebration of his birth.  Dad enjoyed having all his children and grandchildren together in one spot.  
The joke in our family is how Dad fixes EVERYTHING with Duck brand duct tape.  Do you have someone like that in your family?  Are YOU that person in your family?  I digress...  At Jordan's urging, I ordered Dad a special individual birthday cake to resemble a roll of duct tape.  He got a kick out that. 
After dinner, we all stuck around to watch the Ohio State football game.  It was an exciting game and Ohio State pulled out the victory with only seconds left in the game.  That was the "icing" on Dad's birthday cake. 



  1. That cake is the absolute BEST! I love duck tape, too. I wouldn't mind a cake like that. LOL!

    What a fun celebration and many more happy birthdays to your sweet father!



  2. Happy B-Day to your dad! Lovin' the duck tape cake! It is after all the unofficial sponsor of NASCAR. Nice pic of your family:@)
