This is what 50 looks like!


My oldest son is celebrating his 50th birthday today. How did this happen? I'm not old enough to be the mother of a 50 year old.

His office staff did a fantastic job decorating his office for this significant birthday. The arm you see holding the balloons belongs to Geri, his office manager.


Geri spent a lot of time doing research to make this poster of facts from 1959. I have left this as a very large image so you can click on it and are able to read these facts. His beloved Packers had their first winning season since 1947 in 1959 under the legendary coach Vince Lombardi.
That love of the Packers has continued throughout his life and he is a devoted Packer fan with a extensive Packer wardrobe and Packer memorabilia collection in his home and office.

This large birthday card allowed visitors to his office to add their greeting.


This shows some decorations in the reception area. The streamers, balloons, signs and other decorations filled every single part of the office. I know they worked on this for months and they did a fantastic job. Thanks Geri and the entire staff for being such special people.


Here he is heading down the hallway and getting back to work.

After the workday was over they treated him to a Mexican dinner at the office, presented him with a very special gift and took him to a comedy club in Illinois by limousine.

The birthday boy is today's puzzle!

Kay I have to agree with you, you don't look like you are the mother of a 50 year old! And I met you at a Florida quilt show!
