Happy Birthday, TGOO!!!

Today is The Great Omnipotent One's Birthday!!! Yahoo!

Last year... I wasn't able to make a birthday post for him because I was in the midst of getting hit by Frances. That was his first venture into substitute blogging for me... his sitreps that y'all have become accustomed to by now.

I may have to just reprint those in a post for tomorrow. This 1 year anniversary of Hurricane Frances. Ahhh... good stuff. He's a funny guy.

So... right before the Hurricane hit, I got Blog Father Grau's home phone number. As she was making landfall, while we still had phone, I called my folks, wished TGOO a happy birthday, then called Grau, told him we were safe so far... then asked him to make a birthday post for my Dad.

This year... wow... the country is in the midst of the biggest hurricane mess ever. Doesn't pay to be born in September!!! (Those frickin' Christmas and New Years parties will get someone every time!)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE GREAT OMNIPOTENT ONE!!!! From one of your four biggest fans. :)

And just for his birthday, I found this picture for him, and I will be making this in November for him as this is his fave. And for the record, mine looks better than anything I could find on the 'net.


That's a picture of Banana Pudding for those of you not in the know!

I LOVE You, Dad!

Hubba made me a banana pudding last night. First she asked me "Can you eat a whole banana pudding?" I gave her an honest reply, "Not all at once. It'll take a few days." So she served me my favorite dessert tonight and it's 1/4 gone. I figure it's a breakfast food, too. Yum! Thanks for thinking of me.

Happy Birthday, TGOO!!!

You know, if you're up to sharing, I could help get rid of that banana pudding... ;)

Happy Birthday TGOO! Add some chocolate to that pudding and I'll eat it as well. ;-)

That pudding picture brings back memories.... haven't had any of that stuff in years.I may have to make a batch for old times' sake.

But, growing up closer to the Keys, MY favorite birthday treat was always Key Lime pie, the real stuff, not that dyed-green nonsense some restaurants serve.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TOGO, glad to hear things are going OK up your way. May your skies be blue from now on.

Happy Birthday, TGOO...thanks for your military service, for being one of the guys with a white hat, and raising thoughtful children....

what is the secret?

Tell Hubba, she might want to post that recipe, for us yanks.

The secret was to marry the right woman. I suspect your hubby broke the code on that one, too.

A belated Happy Birthday to you TGOO! I hope you had a terrific day. I don't like bananas too much - so you can have my share of the banana pudding. *grin*

A very belated Happy Birthday TGOO. That pudding looks fantastic. I could almost eat the picture. VW Bug can keep the choclate, blech.

Nooo! Send the chocolate north by northwest.

Happy Birthday, TGOO!

Happy Birthday indeed. Enjoy the September birth date though. Try mid January in the Buckeye State, and I think you'l reconsider. No excitement, just freezin' cold. No deck parties, or cookouts, hard to get people "out" that time of year 'round here.

And the puddin'. My grandmother has a sweet spot for that stuff, and I'm no "cook", but... I'd stop at King's barbecue and bring her some everytime I went to see her for dinner, and most other times as well. Bananna puddin's good eatin' now.
