My rubber chicken birthday

Hoo hah!  The invites are all out for the birthday bbq at the end of the month and the responses are coming in, which puts me in a birthday blogging mood (which you know I love to do if you checked out the “Events” category on the blog).  Read on… Just short of 12 years… Read more »
