Toeless in Philly

Today is my friend Toeless' birthday. Many of you faithful blog readers know all about Toeless, the fact that she lost a pinky toe in a motorcycle accident when she was a teenager, and to this day asks for a 10% discount every time she gets a pedicure. You know that we both hate tea (although my position on that has been upgraded to not-liking-as-well-as-coffee). You know that she's an amazing parent, and that I have learned some of my best moves from her. You have learned that most everything I say that is funny, originated with her. You have learned that there would be no NEHBM (not enough has been made) if she hadn't said it first.

When I think of Toeless Terry I laugh. Every time. And I think of her every day. You do the math, at least once a day I have a laugh, and not enough has been made of that.

I love you, Ter, I miss you, not enough has been made of all that you've brought to my life through the years, and all that awaits me, I'm sure.

Happy birthday!

Carrie- you forgot something. From someone who knew nothing of her until I opened your blog and saw her picture on my screen.... She's beautiful! Sounds like she's even more beautiful on the inside. I will check out her blog.

Thanx!

Wow, Thanks Girls! I have to say--this is not how I really look--what good is it to have a husband who is a wizard with photoshop if you don't use him once in a while. It's better than botox!

Love that you're celebrating this birthday of a friend who is so dear to you. I'm certain she feels very lucky to have you in her life. Much better than a pinky toe!

Happy Birthday, Terry - the friend I haven't met yet. I love knowing the two of you have each other.
