B-Day!
What could have possessed my Mother to purchase this cake from her local bakery?  Yes, the family was gathering for a birthday party, but it was not for "Mom's" birthday.  I mean, we just celebrated her birthday last month!  Must it always be about her!?  Did Mom not realize that today we were celebrating the 91st birthday of my Grandmother ... the anniversary of the birth of her very own Mo ... Oh, wait ... Nevermind; I get it now.  Sorry, Mom.

B-Day!B-Day!
Grandma and Grandpa have no such difficulty understanding what's written on the cake.   Meanwhile, Dad suggests that we skip lunch and get right to it.  Cake, Dad argues, contains at least two of the basic nutritional food groups: "sugar" and "frosting."

B-Day!
Meanwhile, Uncle Earl stares quizzically at Mom as she inexplicably uses a metal detector to search for valuable gold coins that might be buried under my Grandparents' carpet.

B-Day!B-Day!
Upon closer inspection, we realize that it isn't a metal detector at all, but rather the vacuum cleaner that Aunt Marguerite and I purchased as a birthday gift for Grandma.   A foolproof present for sure, because even a reaction of "It sucks!" would be a compliment.  Also pictured here are Uncle Earl and Grandpa in their enthusiastic reaction to that "it sucks/vacuum cleaner" joke that I just told.    

B-Day!
The usual "thumbs up" photo, this time featuring Aunt Liv as The Fonz and your truly as a poor man's version of Fonzie's nephew Chachi.

B-Day!B-Day!
Having mastered thumb action, here I am trying my hand at using the more challenging pointer-finger appendage.  Judging by Marguerite's reaction, I should stick to what I know best.  Later in the day, Marguerite, Mom and Dad would apply thumb screws to me to teach me a lesson, then go about their business with a game of cards.

B-Day!
To further help convert me back to the "Order of the Thumb," Mom coaxes her own famous preaxial digit out of retirement for another jeffthomas.com photo gallery appearance.  You can spot her alongside Grandma in the upper left-hand corner of this picture.
