It is Mike's birthday!
April 13th is one of the happiest days of the year for me!
Yea, sure, that was the day my beloved was born and all that.
Yep, I'm so very glad he was born.
Here's the deal, though.
For eight M-I-S-E-R-A-B-L-E weeks
each year, I am older than Mike.
Being the funny guy that he is, he
reminds me over and over and over
that I am the elderly one.
That's not a very gentlemanly way for him to behave
but you are likely not too surprised by this if you read
about his obnoxious behavior here.
Mike didn't appreciate that post.
He was downright pouty about it.
After that post he forbade me,
from ever mentioning his name or using his photo on my blog again!
Let me be serious for just a second...
Mike is thoughtful and caring.
Mike is a man of deep integrity.
Mike has a tender heart.
Mike makes me laugh.
I have a deep respect for this man, my husband, but
when he forbade me from using his photo, I had to go back
through old photos to choose some of my favorites.
He'll forgive me; he wears a cross...
...and he's so handsome.
