Birthday Wishes

I will not be able to match the likes of JEB's birthday poem for me. Let's just get that on the table right now.

If I could grant you one wish it would be this: Driving down a gravel, farm to market road in Texas, hands on the steering wheel of your Dodge Ram - Bluebelle cowering from the fan in the passenger seat next to you. Mic Jagger's voice droning through the radio. You pull up to a hole it the wall type Barbecue place, slash dance hall. All your friends are there. We dance to whatever country/bluegrass band is playing that night and dine on brisket and beans until your husband decides to have some beer (cause it just feels right given the circumstances) and gets sick.
We pile in the back of your pick up and drive back to your place. When we get there you discover that we all pitched in and had hired someone to clean your entire house top to bottom. There is a card on the counter. We've all signed it and also payed for someone to come in once a week, for a year and do all of your laundry. In the refrigerator is some amazing, gourmet dessert we all share with some coffee. We talk and/or spew hate at one another (if nerts be the activity of choice for the remainder of the evening) until the sun comes up. We go to bed and sleep until we feel like getting up, because we've got a babysitter for our children.
Happy Birthday !!! And may whatever your wish be, that it comes true!!!
