Celebrations!

Thirty seven years ago at 5:35pm, my parents welcomed their first child. Well, actually, my mom...my dad was out moving the car since he didn't want to pay the parking fee... and he missed the birth of his first child! Oh well, one of those things!!

To make it up to her, when she was ready to come home from the hospital a week later, he had gotten what all families of three needed...a new station wagon. Now, remember this was the early 70's station wagons were L-A-R-G-E vehicles!!


Now, on this same day, in the same hospital a baby boy was born. He happened to be the son of a co-worker of my Dad. Every year on this day we remember the birth of this baby by saying...you remember D.W.?? Honestly I can not remember meeting him that day!! But happy birthday to you D.W.!


Won't you join me tonight to celebrate by having a piece of my favourite chocolate cake? I would love to see you all on my birthday!!

Tasha said...

happy birthday, love the car

Funny in my mind said...

Happy Birthday!!
We had a Plymouth that looked just like that with the back seat that faced backward and we stuck out tongue out at cars behind us and they would honk and flip my dad the bird and he wouldn't know why. Good times.
I could use some cake, what time is this shindig??

Jenners said...

OK...just give me directions and I am so there! I never turn down the opportunity for chocolate cake! Happy Happy Birthday! So funny that your dad was out moving the car to save a little bit of money and missed one of the most important moments of his whole life! And I was thinking that maybe you ended up marrying D.W. or something but I guess that is not the case! And we totally had that same car but with yellow trim -- gotta love that wood paneling. And I remember correctly, I think ours had a little thing in the back where you could make a small table and sit at benches. No seatbelts of course. I remember sitting back there with my brothers on car trips sometimes. Safety wasn't quite the issue it is today!

Hope you had a wonderful day!
