Happy Birthday Ruth!

Ruth's Birthday is Friday, August 22



Classic third grade joke: How many birthdays does the average woman in America have?


Give up?

One. I know that's really bad, but I still like it.


I want to celebrate with you all the birthday of my sweetie, Ruth. I won't tell you how old she is, but she is younger than I.

Happy Birthday Ruth!

Loring Wirbel said...

So do you have a mutual party for birthdays and teaching awards?

Drowsey Monkey said...

Happy Birthday Ruth!

I love that "Heidi" photo of her ;)

Ruth said...

Wowee! Thank you, Donnie! What a surprise!

(But what are you doing posting a photo that I didn't take, huh?? Oh wait, it's of me, so I guess that's ok.)

Thank you, Sharon, Amy, and Drowsey! Good idea, Loring, but since I already had my birthday dinner Tuesday (schedules are crazy), I think we'll just have to plan something special for the award winner.

Ruth said...

Oh, and yes, I do look rather young, don't I? This photo was taken just earlier this summer . . .

I've said Happy Birthday to Ruth already on her blog, but interestingly enough, I was very impressed by her post on the wonderful Mr M. who has recently won an award for his teaching!?

I know you don't like to boast or brag about thing like that, but I would like to congratulate you on doing a great job with the kids you teach!

I still remember the good teachers I had (and the bad one), as they helped me be the person I am today.

So well done Don - take the praise - you deserve it!

:D

Ruth said...

Good eye, Bob! Of course the skywatcher would notice that pigtail. There was a little herd of pigs hiking with us on the mountain from Lauterbrunnen to Wengen, Switzerland.

Oh Bob, I wonder if you have ever looked at the stars from Switzerland?

Sandy said...

ahhhh darn, I missed this on the right date..

well happy birthday to Ruth a few days late.

Great photo!!! She looks so young and cute there....No wonder you snatched her up.

Bob Johnson said...

I knew it was a pig,lol. No I bet they are cool, with the mountains in the background, what a photo op.

Farm Chick Paula said...

Happy Belated Birthday, Ruth!

I hope Don took you out somewhere nice to eat!!

Ruth said...

Paula, he did! Like 4 times last week. :)

Don said...

Wow! Thank you all for sending my sweetie such nice birthday greetings. We did manage to celebrate just about every day at a different restaurant. Now I'll have to teach Driver's Ed again to pay for it!! (NOT)

Ruth (and Don)! You are so wonderful and funny!
