Nature Will Never Get Old

Happy 40th birthday to Nature Boy! Please raise a glass, even if it is just orange juice, in the honor of a man who is, in addition to being lucky enough to be my friend, a teacher, a talented artist,

The piece on the right is one of Nature Boy's discards that I dug out of the trash when we were roommates. The stamped raku piece on the left MDH paid full price for at one of Nature Boy's gallery shows and gave it to me for my birthday. I treasure them both.

had the good sense to marry the fabulous Frenchie, I couldn't find a picture of the two of them together, so here is a picture of Frenchie doing what she does best.

and father to boy genius, Jimmy Neutron.

I had to include this picture too because of the matching swim wear.

I have claimed for years that Nature Boy is hands down the best roommate I ever had. The guy was tidy, never borrowed my towels and has one of the best laughs you'd ever hope to hear. It's infectious. Seriously it's one of those laughs that when you hear it you have to find out what's the fuck is so funny and even if you never find out you'll start laughing anyway.

Also, Nature Boy can rock a pair of overalls like nobody's business. He doesn't look like Junior Samples at all.

Happy Birthday Nature Boy - you are loved.

happy birthday Nature Boy, we hear a lot about you...

Is Frenchie the teacher who had the great blog for about a month?

With that aside, Nature Boy done well, she is very attractive...just saying.

I don't even know what to say to this... It moved me nearly to tears. To know you are held so warmly in the hearts of your friends and family is humbling. Thank You Lady.

Lady...what a wonderful thing to do for my sweet husband. You are the best! We would've loved to have you here last night with everyone else.

Evil...yes, Frenchie is the former Madame la Prof. I had to lose the blog after a co-worker got wind of it from a former co-worker. Ugh. Couldn't risk it.
