The Birthday Guy!

Q: Where's your happy face?!?
A: This is my happy face.

Happy Birthday to my sweetheart!
Doesn't he look thrilled to be another year older?
It could just be that he's in the passenger's seat. My man likes being the driver.

Opinions Please

We just repainted the kitchen these khaki and red colors. The khaki in the picture below looks more gold than it actually is. The red wall only has 1 coat of paint on it. I can see that several more will need to go up before the splotches disappear.
The next step is to granite tile the countertops.

I have narrowed the choices down to two. They are similar, and I do have a favorite but I need some opinions. My decision making skills are not one of the reasons why Lee married me.
That is where you come in. Let me know if you prefer tile #1 or #2
I will let you know what we decide and of course finished kitchen pictures.

Tile #1 above with the Khaki wall.

Tile # 2 above with the the khaki wall.
You should know that the appliances are stainless steel and the sink will be black.
Decision time people!!!!

Flying Blind

A WOMAN was flying from Seattle to San Francisco . Unexpectedly, the plane was diverted to Sacramento along the way. The flight attendant explained that there would be a delay, and if the passengers wanted to get off the aircraft the plane would re-board in 50 minutes.

Everybody got off the plane except one lady who was blind. The man had noticed her as he walked by and could tell the lady was blind because her Seeing Eye dog lay quietly underneath the seats in front of her throughout the entire flight.

He could also tell she had flown this very flight before because the pilot approached her, and calling her by name, said, 'Kathy, we are in Sacramento for almost an hour. Would you like to get off and stretch your legs?' The blind lady replied, 'No thanks, but maybe Buddy would like to stretch his legs.'

Picture this:
All the people in the gate area came to a complete standstill when they looked up and saw the pilot walk off the plane with a Seeing Eye dog! The pilot was even wearing sunglasses. People scattered. They not only tried to change planes, but they were trying to change airlines!

True story...

The week before Easter Gracie overheard me say that I needed a cup of honey to make the baklava. I was telling Lee that I had some honey in our current jar but I was not sure if it was a full cup and that it was stuck in the bottom of the jar. He offhandedly said that it was too bad that no one had invented something that would hold a bottle upside down in order for the contents to drain out.
Gracie saw a challenge and went straight to work.
Here is what she built.

Impressive huh?
Imagine what she could do with a lab and a workshop!

Easter Baklava!

Caitlin has decided she wants baklava instead of a cake for her birthday.
