Yesterday a friend who had never had a "Halfy Birthday" party experienced this occasion at lunch here today.
This was one of the balloons I found. It was so appropriate as this was the same friend who sent me the transparent butterfly email.
Because of the reflective surface of the other balloon I was not able to get a photo of it. It said "Halfy Birthday" - of course!
What kind of cards do you send when celebrating a Halfy Birthday?
Halfy Birthday cards, of course.
It is also appropriate to add the number of days old the celebrant is!
Lunch was barbecued ribs, potato salad, coleslaw, chunky cinnamon applesauce and hot home made wheat bread and butter. The wine was Chateau St Jean Chardonnay from Sonoma County.
I forgot to take food and people photos.
This is the cake - a carrot cake sliced down the middle so that it had half the carrot and although you can not read it on the top it says "Halfy Birthday"!
I didn't take any more photos to share with you, but take my word for it - our friend was surprised! Kept saying "I've never heard of this before - Is this a Wisconsin thing?
"Did you always do this in your family?"
I also heard "I can't believe this!" many times during the afternoon from those in attendance.
I think it is so much fun to do the unexpected. I've had a lot of opportunities to do the unexpected with my friends here recently.
What else but the transparent butterfly for today's puzzle!
