The Loot

Thank you very much for all the birthday wishes. Sorry I missed your call, Mom. Call me, we'll talk about Star Trek. (that folks, is why I have a cool Mom)

Here's a look at the kind presents I received:

Yeah! Watch out, Faith/Tyce! After a few weeks of study, I'll be a force to be reckoned with in Scrabble, Boggle, and Bananagrams! Bwaa-haa-haa! Thanks, sis! (that's a lot of exclamation points)

I can smell the sourdough starters already. Bread is my weakest culinary area and I've wanted this book for a long time to work through. Thanks, Mom! I'll send you some Pain au Levain one of these days.

Hurray! Now I can go to the ballpark in style! Thanks, honey!

The fun thing about Cynthia is that in the months of May and December she tries to buy all the 'little things' that I don't get very often and she considers them birthday/Christmas presents. I got a dark chocolate bar, Simply Orange grove style, Crispix cereal, and a few more items in the past month. I teased her gently this morning by stating this fact and gave my best impression: "Here, honey! Car wax! Happy birthday!". She laughed and said, quite seriously, "yeah...I almost got car wax for you." I rest my case.

Lastly, I got some cash from my Mother-in-Law. Thanks, Mom! I used it to buy some Eric Clapton and John Mayer albums. And when you've got Mayer and Slowhand together, you're in a state of grace.


  1. Peter, I like the Brewers shirt. That logo was the cool one they had before the current one. It is a glove with a ball in it. I am curious to what EC cds you buy? I really wish they would create a CD of the Crossroads concerts. There is some really good stuff in there.

  2. Even growing up in SoCal & Utah, I always thought the ball/glove logo was the best in baseball. It's the only one I like on my Brewers gear.

    I got From the Cradle. I've always liked his more bluesy stuff.

  3. Just so you know cynthia isn't the only wife that does birthday presents that way...hey I figure if it is out of the ordinary, and I wouldn't usually get it for him, it's a birthday present. Thanks cynthia for not making me the only one!
