Ted Meyers turned 81 this past week, and many family members
plus a few “adopted family members” showed up at the house to help him celebrate!
A total of 19 people drifted in and out, with the majority staying for delicious
barbequed chicken and hamburgers with all the fixings, along with various
salads and snacks. Grandson Tony took over the job of Head Barbeque Chef,
leaving Grandpa to relax and enjoy his special day. After dinner, when everyone
was too stuffed to move, a birthday cake was brought out with “Happy Birthday
to the Old Codger” written on top! Several found a little more room for that
and some ice cream. Games of UpWords were played while the Cribbage boards sat
waiting for contenders. That’s a first for Ted’s house! Great-grandchildren
Ileigh, Easton, Bailee and Peyton had fun, too, and kept everyone laughing and
hopping! All in all, it was a great day that Ted won’t soon forget.

Handy Hint:Always in
a hurry in the morning? For a very nutritious and cholesterol-lowering
pour-eat-done breakfast, buy whole grain cereals that have more grams of fiber
heard of Cherilyn Sarkisian, Shawn Corey Carter, Gordon Matthew Thomas Sumner
or Adele Laurie Blue Adkins? Okay, how about Cher, Jay-Z, Sting or Adele? Same
Until next time . . . remember to take time to enjoy the
WONDERs all around us.
