Who's Having a Birthday? And Staying Safe.

Who's having a birthday today?
Well it's Stanley!
a.k.a. Wayne
a.k.a. Hubby

I guess 'back in the day'
his mother's floor was so clean
you could eat off it.



And back in the day
you didn't think twice
about bathing your baby in the kitchen sink
near an electrical appliance and a power outlet.



Oh, you want to play with your gun
around your best friend and the family cat?
Not a problem!


I'm so glad this generation
has so much more common sense...






hmmm.....
maybe we don't.



Have a good birthday Stanley!

Happy birthday to Wayne/Stanley/hubby. :-)

My goodness, it's amazing the human species has survived, isn't it? Gosh, back in our old farmhouse, we had wooden counters and we chopped meat on them. Gasp. And I ate carrots pulled fresh from the garden and wiped off on the grass. Another gasp. We ran around and played outdoors, down by the river, without fear of drowning. And on and on.

But I digress.

The point is to say that I hope your hubby has a fantastic celebration! :-)

I agree with Fuzzy Tales, I'm amazed that I even grew up and am now getting old. My gosh, my dentist back in the old days gave me mercury to play with. Whew! Happy Birthday Stanley, you are a lucky man to have Catherine!

Happy Birthday Wayne.....floors were clean enough to eat off of, spring and fall house cleaning happened and windows were washed in and out several times during the year, sigh, who has time or ambition for that. Hope you guys have a great evening celebrating!

love the pics, Happy Birthday Stan the Man, let me tell you a story of a brother and his Dad's gun trying to put a bullet in it, because, all the parents were out, and a crank phone call left him and his younger siblings scared, good thing the bullet didn't fit...I was hiding in the bathroom...the seventies were wonderful weren't they?

Happy (now belated - sorry!!) birthday Stanley/Wayne! Hope you had a great day!
Those are some hilariously adorable pictures :D

kittykye said...

Oh wait, it's only 11pm here, therefore only 9pm in Saskatchewan! I thought it was past midnight already. This proves I must go to bed, but at least it's not a belated birthday wish after all! ;)

Linens and Royals said...

Celebrate with another floor party, that looks fun. I'm sure you are still young enough to get up again from the floor. XO

Happy birthday to Stan the Man. I think we all have photos of being bathed in the sink. Mine in my Mammaw's kitchen sink when I was about the same age. At first I thought the video was a spoof on how some folks are so overprotective. To the point of making their kids crazy and sick. Texting and driving is one of my pet peeves. It is a big problem here -- talking, texting -- and since there's no driver's ed, most folks already don't know how to drive -- so how do they think they can concentrate on the road and do anything else. If a friend calls me and I know they are driving, I tell them to call me when they get where they are going. I refused to talk to them. And I don't even touch my phone when I am in my car. Have a great day! Tammy

Katy Noelle said...

Oh, Cat! Eeeek!

Okay, but.... happy birthday, 'Stanley'!!! (a wee bit late!) and, those are such cut pics of him! and, MEN! We don't if we knew half of what they get up to - our hair would curl!!! (Or straighten....depending! ;))

Eileen said...

Happy belated birthday to your hubby!

With those lovely tv trays I'm surprised they needed to eat of the floor, lol!

Isn't that video the truth - crazy world we live in.
