HAVE YOUR CAKES, AND EAT THEM TOO!

They say it's your birthday...
I hope you get LOTS of cake (these were at the Bellagio a few weeks back) - enough to make you sick if you want - at 81 years old, you deserve as much cake as you can stand, and then some!  I'll be there in four, and we'll eat some more!
For all the goofy things I've ever made you do (like going into a strange building in the middle of hippie central to find an amazing carousel, or dragging up and down ALL those stairs at Red Rocks to fill in for Mom) - why, even those things 60 miles away...
Like Acoma - I love you more than you will ever know (just like I love this picture of you two)!
Happy Birthday, Dad - I wanted this post to be on here earlier, but spent the day wrestling (figuratively) with this stupid computer.  See, it's not just you who has issues with electronics!
And MORE cake, because I missed a Mother's Day, Post...to a Mom a lot of girls WISH they had.  I know your day was wonderful.  We might just have a belated cake for that TOO, when I get home. For right now though, these are "empty" calories so enjoy!
Quite a pair - the two of 'em have been at it almost 59 years this year...wife, MOTHER, friend.  I love you to the moon and back - and this would be the best parting shot I could leave you with, Mom - sorry it is so late, but the thought was there...
Love you both - see you soon!  XOXO

Happy birthday to your dad, dear Tanya, I can see your parents are all in love with their wonderful daughter, just as you love them. I also know from the years following you, that you have had so very many amazing experiences with both of them, traveling and seing all kind of fantastic places together , you are truly lucky to have been -and am-- able doing that.
I wish you many more beautiful years with your parents dear friend.
Hugs, Dorthe
