Happy Birthday To Our Son-In-Law- BIG J


He came into the family

when he married

our youngest daughter,


Aren't they cute

The Key West Island Scout 


The Irish Princess.

He has

great parents.

(yes her eyes do open!;>)
He gave us two

wonderful little


BigBoyE & 

Charles In Charge.

and a sweet granddaughter-

Little Bright Eyes.

You did good, BigJ,

very, very good!

He used to run the 

scouting base camp

in Key West 

but NOW he is a 

Harley Man.

He is part of the management team

for Harley Davidson

in Indiana and the surrounding area.

Yep- He rides a HOG!

No- not THAT kind of HOG--

This kind of HOG-

you know- complete with heater

for cold weather and every other option 

you can think of...

Every man I know hates him


 they wonder


They ALL want his job!

Hmmm...could it be his degrees

and business acumen combined

to bring him to the perfect job?

We are proud of you, buddy!!

We won't see you on

your special day

but we wished you a 


last weekend when you were here.

Hope you have a GREAT birthday!

ps---MyHero wonders if you can 

squish a piece of birthday cake up for him

so he can put it through his feeding tube

You can just cut me a regular piece, m'kay?

I'll eat it after I get home from

pushing the boys around at the VA!

Harley's have heaters??? I thought those guys were big and tough out there riding the range. Now I'm gonna think about the heater going every time one passes me on the road. Happy B'day to your SIL.
