this just made me smile...

So I was just remembering that my birthday is tomorrow and somehow an old birthday memory popped into my head. First of all, I have to say that my Grandma Mary was awesome and always had silly songs for us...such as "Mares eat oats and does eat oats and little lambs eat ivy. And kittles eat ivy too, wouldn't you?" I have no idea what the heck that song meant, but we sang it. Well, one year she brought Cory and I both a cassette tape of a very special birthday song. It goes like this:

"My name is Zoom and I live on the moon, but I came down to earth just to sing you this tune. 'Cause Mandy (or insert your name here) it's your birthday TODAY!!!"

We used to laugh and laugh at that song and I definitely wish I still had the tape. It's pretty much the best song ever.

You can listen to a clip of it (with the name Jason inserted) here.

The memory of that song, and my Grandma Mary, just made me smile.

That's awesome ! My grandma was always good for a silly song. There was this one she always did, but I have no idea how to begin spelling the words.

If Shells stops by she can bust out some " Hi Low"

Also, Happy Birthday !!

a day early
