Happy Birthday, Gramps!!

Happy Happy Birthday, Gramps!  We love you VERY much!

Now...a funny story about Gramps's birthday:

We were eating supper on the river, celebrating Gramps's birthday--he turned 60 today!  Jonathan was telling Hallie that Gramps would be 60...and tried to get her to count to 60.  She counted along with him until a little past 20...then she didn't know the numbers.  Jonathan counted super fast and then "out of breath" said, "SIXTY!"  Hallie was wide-eyed and said, "Whoa!!"  She was impressed.  Later, Jonathan was simply trying to get Hallie to SAY the number 60.  This is how it went:

Jonathan:  Hallie, say "sixty".
Hallie:  One, two, three...(loud sigh)
Jonathan:  No, Hallie...just SAY "sixty"...just say the number.
Hallie:  One, two, three, four, five...(head rolls, loud sigh)...I can't!  I'll be too tired!"

We all got a good laugh out of that! :o)

Happy 60th, Gramps!  Isn't it nice to know you're a number that makes Hallie tired. ;o)
