Omer turned 80 today. Yeah, it's pretty difficult to imagine. He asked for one thing. This used to be the every-birthday tradition, but I'll bet we haven't had this since 1989. He wanted German chocolate cake. This cake used more sugar than I've used in total in the past six months. Wowser! I frosted half and froze the other half. It HAS to be three layers, so here you go, half a cake.
Did it turn out? Yup. This will last us several days. We've cut down on the sugar so much that I almost didn't like it. Almost.
The best part of the whole day was that the Impossibles (remember them- see link below for a reminder) had set it up with me to surprise Om with a Zoom party. Attendance was 100%. Om and me.
I did a really good job of getting screen captures when people were looking down. I'm sure they just look like a bunch of older people to you, but I still see us all like this.
These four people have come to mean a lot to me over the years.
In other news: Well, this took nearly all day, but I did finish the data book for the hike, and got the lawnmower going, and got my Christmas gift air compressor fired up and the tires on the lawnmower filled. Tomorrow I should be able to mow!
