Merci Turns 16
A special Saturday birthday post for our lovely Merci. She was adopted on this date from the local shelter in 2003, possibly age 2 at the time, so Jan made this her official birthday. That would make her about 16..
This is a more recent photo of her, probably within the last year. She is showing her age even more today.
Merci: Thank you for this lovely card Pipo, Mr Jack Freckles and Mom Ingrid.)
Merci: And thank you Alasandra the Cats and Dogs.
What pretty cards. I can't wait to open the presents you guys got me. There are presents, aren't there!
Rusty: Um ... I don't see any. Doe anyone know if we bought Merci a present?
Taylor: Actually, we didn't have any money to buy her anything.
Micah: I thought we were going to steal .. er, borrow some from Jan's purse.
Marcus: We shook it and all that fell out were three pennies. Amazon didn't have anything on sale for three cents.
Rusty: But there's cake. Surely there's cake. Noooo? Cyndi is shaking her head. Cyndi, weren't you in charge of baking Merci a cake?
Cyndi: I was but when I tried to get eggs out of the refrigerator yesterday, a pineapple fell on my head and Jan yelled at me to stop bruising the fruit. What about the bruise on my head? My ears were ringing for hours.
Micah: It seems we've failed to make your birthday a happy one, Merci. We're sorry.
Buddy: If I were you, Merci, I would refuse to turn another year older until Jan gets on the ball and gets you something worth celebrating! After all, you only turn 16 once.
Merci: It's okay, guys. You tried. I don't really need anything except my family and you're all here. Except Jan. Where is she?
Buddy: I think that was Jan that just yelled "ow". I wonder what happened?
Percy: *cranes his neck to see into the kitchen* I think the pineapple that attacked Cyndi yesterday just fell out of the refrigerator onto Jan's bare foot.
As long as we're posting on Saturday, we would like to join Athena's Caturday Art blog hop. The first picture is a sketch. Unfortunately, we don't remember what we used for the second.
