Christmas and Birthday Wonders

I’ve posted photos of some pretty special gifts I’ve received from some very special people, for both Christmas and my birthday (today I turned 65!).

A wondrously cool math pop quiz clock from my son Eric,
his wife Kelly, and my 2 year old granddaughter Josie!
Can you do the math?

makes my heart sing!

  1. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Daphne!! Looks like you're having a fun one! I'm glad you got to celebrate your birthday at The Monkey Tree and am sure you helped it take its final bows in style. I looked it up online and think that's an awful shame it's closing! It sounded wonderful. Of course, their closing merely creates an opening for Daphne's Vegan Bistro in a few months. ;-)ROTFL, I'd never show up on time to anything if I had a clock like that! Math is not ma thang. 🙂 But that is some clever and I think one should hang in every math class!So THAT'S your mermaid! I was wondering what you were talking about in an earlier post about your mermaid arriving. She's fantastic! What a perfect addition to your beautiful landscape. (I can't believe how green and lush it is there!) Her dolphin friend is the sweetest! I have an idea for a name for your garden gnome, inspired by our comments on your previous post about the way things are going in this country…Gnome Chomsky! LOL ;-)Hope you keep enjoying a delightful birthday, Daphne!

  2. Thanks, Laloofah and yes, the day is working out nicely. I have a couple presents to open after my dinner and otherwise a lovely quiet evening. And no, I'd never be a replacement for The Monkey Tree on many levels, but thanks for the thought! The math clock is definitely me (although the way they get 9 is lame since pi isn't just 3.14, but I'll let that slide). I was, after all, a physics major in my first life and I just love numbers and how they work. Millicent fits beautifully into my yard, and I don't handle deciduous trees well, so I have an absolute plethora of conifers. With all the rain we've had it is definitely green and lush! One thing I couldn't handle when I lived in AZ was the absence of green, even though the desert can be really beautiful. And isn't the dolphin just precious! I do like your idea of naming my gnome Gnome Chomsky! You come up with the best stuff! Anyway, have a peaceful evening and thanks for all the good wishes.
