Happy Belated Birthday to you!

Happy Birthday week, Anthony! Hope  you had a wonderful birthday-trip home over Thanksgiving.  It was sooo hectic here this past two weeks!  I had every good intention of snail-mailing a happy birthday greeting to you @State College, then all ____ broke out those days late last week.  Today here I am,  MORE than a day late!  Here are some of my poor excuses:  my new duel-fuel range was delivered to Sears Gainesville,  from Jacksonville last Friday, so  I eagerly ran (drove) 40 mi. there to pick it up.  Last Sunday Paul intended to install it for me.  However, he decided "we needed" a longer gas line so I can pull the range out to clean behind. (and a good idea).  Of course, that meant we needed to wait until Monday to buy the part.  Well, we ended up working 8 hours on your birthday, w/Paul having to install a 220 electric line first, for the electric oven, then re-configure a  new,  longer gas line for the cooktop.  Etc. etc. as things go with new installation.  In the meantime, I was preparing for Marc coming home (an 8 hr drive from Nashville, Tennessee) and Laura & Doug (2 1/2 hours home from Daytona Beach) to spend Thanksgiving (they ended up staying w/their sister Lisa all week-end, 10 miles from Mom’s!)  Needless to say, I was running back & forth everyday!  But, we all enjoyed being all together.  We went to see the new 007 movie Friday (not as intriging as some of the older ones but great graphics), then to dinner @Carrabba’s --great Italian food.  Of course, Marc had to go to the toy store and buy a boy-toy...a little electric car.  Only to have Doug talk him into going the next day to a "real hobby store" and Marc bought a "real  ’gas-powered’ car";  then they along with my Grandson Brett, raced cars late into Saturday night and Sunday early morning before everyone had to drive back home.  Whew!  We are all now looking forward to the next holiday when we can all be together!  Wish you were nearer, to enjoy sharing time w/us.  Wish the whole family was nearer.  You all will just have to come on down sometime. . .probably nicest @Laura’s. . .to enjoy the beach!  Well, just wanted you to know I was thinking of you all this birthday week-end...and wishing you "Happy Birthday!" Love you xoxo
