Happy Birthday, Jesse!

Well, it's hard to believe that Jesse turns 21 today.

Heather and I were eating our oatmeal porridge out on the veranda, looking out on the wet grass and trying to keep the 4 dogs from stealing toast off the table. I turned to her and said, "And today is Jesse's birthday!"

Heather, his 9 year old baby sister, burst into tears. I guess we miss him a lot.

"Jesse is an adult!" Heather said.

That must be so but wasn't he just this size, like, yesterday??

Happy Birthday, Jesse-boy! We all like you lots and lots.

PS I posted on my Conversant Life blog about what it means to turn 21. It's called "To Be a Man."

I am laughing out loud! Lisa, you really do look the same now as you did 21 years ago. It's true! Darrelle is right-- You are so beautiful-and you always have been.
