Vance's Birthday, NY, VA, OH, NH, NC, TX, dates, a story, and a CD HolidayOrNow Gift Deal

Hi VanceFans!!

It’s my birthday today.

Thank you.

Today I:

1) danced in the kitchen to Earth, Wind, and Fire at 10am in my pajamas,
2) got a magnificent flannel shirt. Muted plaid. Fleece lined. Hidden pockets,
3) had pho,
4) was handed a bag of teriyaki wings through my screen door by my neighbor,
5) was told a story by another nurse neighbor how she just today had to grease a kid head to toe to extract said child from the monkey bars at school. Other teachers, with serious incredulity asked “Is that something they taught you in nursing school?” I nearly choked on the chicken wing I was eating in the front yard when she came by…..OMG…..I was eating chicken wings in my yard? I’m a walking talking racistereotype (I made that word up!!)!!

You just wrap these things up, add a bow, and a card (hell, if you ask nice I’ll supply the card...), drop that sucker into the stocking or lay it out all fanned next to the menorah or just send them along.
