Ten on Tuesday, the birthday edition.

Carole must be psychic. Today is Smokey's birthday. I shall start with the things he would want to happen on his natal anniversary.


Ten Ways To Wish Someone A Happy Birthday.


  1. Bake a blueberry pie. Not from scratch; one of these. I have blogged about them before

  2. Steak and salad for dinner. 

  3. Or a homemade pizza from scratch.

    That's pretty much it for Smokey. He likes to have his birthday recognized but hates a lot of fuss. Let's move on to the ways others might prefer.

  4. A surprise party. This is on my bucket list, but it is difficult to throw a surprise party for myself (hint, hint).

  5. A shout-out on Facebook. Frankly, I use the Facebook birthday prompts to remind me to do #6, below.

  6. An e-card. I tend to do this for nearly everyone whose birthday and email addy I know. The internet is a wonderful thing.

  7. A real card in the mail. As lovely as it is to get such a card these days, I seldom think of it soon enough. Smokey's Aunt Ruth was the champion of birthday cards; I got one from her every single birthday since SB and I got married back in 1974.

  8. A skywriter. This is a bit out of my budget, but wouldn't it be fun?

  9. Back when the boys were growing up, I would hang the HAPPY BIRTHDAY banner in the dining room and bake or buy a special cake. My best was the cake that that looked like four square Lego blocks. And there was also the year I had Younger Son's photo spray-painted on the cake (the bakery at Target had this as a special).

  10. There is no #10.
