This is not quite the "special day" post we expected to be making today. Do you remember this card? It was made by our friend, Gentle Annie. We posted it on October 1st when we celebrated Cyndi's 5th birthday.
This photo is solid proof that Jan has, as she has been claiming lately, "lost it." (We 're not sure whether she means her memory or her mind.) We looked at her calendar this morning and noticed today is Cyndi's 5th birthday. We got to thinking, didn't we just celebrate that recently? Yep, sure did. On October 1st. Had a celebration and Sassy sent presents. It was a quiet but nice celebration.
Jan told us that was Cyndi's birthday then, so how is Cyndi 5 again today? We checked our records in Jan's file cabinet, and there in black and white is Cyndi's Gotcha Date, February 16, 2004, and estimated birth date, December 21, 2004. At the bottom, written in Jan's own handwriting, is the notation, "Assigned birthday, October 1, 2003."
Yep, folks, whatever "it" is, Jan's lost it. Whoever heard of being born twice, in two different years?
But congratulations, Cyndi. With Jan's help, you have achieved the impossible. You were gotcha'd in February 2004 but not born till December 2004. Yeah, right.
How about born in December 2003!
We took a vote (Cyndi included) and decided not to trade Jan in for a human with a working memory/mind. But if she does this again ..... we'll have to take another vote.
Happy 5th Birthday, Cyndi -- again.
