When we do a birthday up, well, OK, hardly anyone takes notice, but we at least made sure Case's day was special. What really helped was the rain let up some, and we at least had time to take the kid for a stroll and run in Fairhaven, his favorite part of town. A liberal treat policy all day long and a visit from one of his favorite guys, our oldest son Joe, and his girl friend Pavlina in the afternoon pretty much finished him off. He's practically apoplectic around him. It won't be long and the farm boy will head back to his kennel, with or without his night owl guardians.
