5:00 Fridays


I was planning on hosting some fellow bloggers clad in woven bikinis made of jump drives we toted home from Blogher and then jumping out of a cake but I couldn't find a crafty macrame artist on Twitter to weave the goods. Mac Daddy will have to settle for a virtual cake, virtual bikinis, and real love.

Show him what you've got people.

Mac Daddy is my one true love, my rock, my cheerleader, my best friend. Save the cliche crap...blah blah blah. It's all true. Really. He's not into SM (social media or otherwise), but if you show him the power of one voice, one domino in this bloggy sea, he just might see the light.

If nothing else, he will see the light from his 41 candles.

Birthday Suit

Shot of Jack Daniels
3 ounces ginger ale
teaspoon simple syrup infused with mint and rosemary
rosemary sprig

Fill a low ball glass with ice. Add Jack Daniels, ginger ale, and simple syrup. Gently stir. Add sprig of rosemary for garnish. Sit back on your porch, count the stars, listen to the crickets, bask in the glow of the fireflies.

This is how Mac Daddy likes to celebrate one more year on the planet.

Happy Birthday Mac Daddy!
I bet you haven't changed a bit since I first met you at the Pointer Sisters (IDS 1994)
Thanks to you and your lovely wife for driving my husband to be in from DTI training to Williams Pub.
I will toast to you and your birthday. Cheers! Hope to see you in the Minneapple sometime.

Oh man! I wish I'd seen this several days ago.

Because I am a talented macrame artist.

Oh well! Next year!
