Happy Birthday to….the most wonderful man in the world

<p>Hello there, this is the Birthday Fairy here coming to you from the abnormally warm Northeast. I swear to you, this will be the last Birthday for a while. AND I’ll have some knitting content soon. WITH pictures.</p> <p>So here I go again…the top five reasons why you should wish Roger a Happy Birthday:</p> <p>1. He is very considerate. I have alot of trouble falling asleep (but once I’m there I have alot of trouble waking up – thank God) so if the dog needs to go out at 2am guess who gets up? That would be Roger. Every night. For six and a half years.</p> <p>2. He is thoughtful. He works in the city alot (NYC for those not from around here) and whenever he does work there he comes home with two dozen roses and a half dozen Krispy Kreme’s. Sometimes I get *really* lucky and he brings home pastrami from the Carnegi Deli ;o) He has literally driven around Manhattan until he has these things and doesn’t come home without them.</p> <p>3. He is patient. There is only one other man that I know that would allow a child to do this to him</p> <div style="text-align: left;"><img src="http://jessaluknits.blogspirit.com/images/medium_roger_the_fairy.jpg" alt="medium_roger_the_fairy.jpg" style="border-width: 0pt; margin: 0.7em 0pt;" /></div> <p>AND not care if I took a picture AND not care if it gets posted on the web for all the world to see. (The other one is my Dad in case you’re wondering).</p> <p>4. He is a yarn enabler. If I ‘feel the need’ as it were and don’t have the funds, all I have to do is ask. I swear. Okay this isn’t completely true these days now that the stash has grown beyond control, but as soon as I have it wrangled back into submission I know who to turn to to help me get my ‘fix’ ;o)</p> <p>5. He’s also pretty silly. Exhibit 1:</p> <div style="text-align: left;"><img src="http://jessaluknits.blogspirit.com/images/medium_033003_029.jpg" alt="medium_033003_029.jpg" style="border-width: 0pt; margin: 0.7em 0pt;" /></div> <p>Here’s a hint…look <i>below</i> the quilt. So much for sending a dignified ‘here’s your kid’s Christmas gift’ picture.</p> <p>Exhibit 2 (that’s a One Skein Wonder in case you’re curious):</p> <div style="text-align: left;"><img src="http://jessaluknits.blogspirit.com/images/medium_knitting_12_.jpg" alt="medium_knitting_12_.jpg" style="border-width: 0pt; margin: 0.7em 0pt;" /></div> <p>’nuff said.</p> <p>So Happy Birthday hon, and thanks for putting up with me (and getting up with the dog) for all these years – oh, and thanks for helping me raise Heather, too ;o) We both love you lots and lots!!!</p>
