Happy Birthday, "Pete"!


My hubby, who is often referred to as "Pete*" in some of my stories here, turned 46 today! Wish him a happy one!

For his birthday, he got
  • PRK surgery (on Jan-15)
  • Dinner out with a good friend of ours at a great Mexican restaurant, and
  • A treadmill!
He was completely not expecting the treadmill, but he's been talking about taking up running again. The weather has been crappy and cold, and his poor iPod is all set up, ready to go, but no action! Now his excuses are gone! :-)

The biggest problem, though, is that the dogs think the treadmill is for them. Both of them tried it out yesterday and were grinning ear-to-ear! And that's what the baby gate's for...

Peace - D

* not his real name, of course

Happy Birthday to your "Pete" - I am a bit jealous though. I still sport my Marine Corps crewcut, but mine has come about naturally. ;P

Thanks everyone. The dogs are going to give me a "run" on that treadmill, I am sure of it.

-Marty, as a former Marine myself I can tell you that it does grow back.

-Aquarians ROCK!!!

Take care all...Pete

Happy Birthday "Pete" my fellow Aquarian!

Nicknames are odd things .. my late father-in-law's name was Irving but he was called Eddie by co-workers ... my dad was born Isadore and was called Iz by familym except for Mom who called him Irv... go figure
