Ginger and Birthdays

Not a whole lot to report around here. Ginger has been soaking up the sun. She has found the perfect spot - in the sun and next to the cotton yarn. There's a slight hint of fall in the air and she must be soaking up all the sun she can.

She has had a little excitement around here lately. It's not all lounging for that girl! Who knew that the battery operated blood pressure thingie (and yes, that is the technical term for it) would make Ginger's blood pressure spike! She was very curious about the noise coming from that little box!

She likes to relax a lot, as you can tell.
But you never can tell when she's going to turn on you!

I completely forgot to show you L's birthday cake. He wanted an Iron Cross shaped cake. He is very into WWII. (Did you know that a Maltese Cross and an Iron Cross are two different things? Apparently Wikipedia doesn't!) This is the gaming table that he and his Dad built. Dad played a quick game of 'Flames of War' with him on his birthday. Right now he has felt cutouts for trees, houses, roads, etc. but all of that is changing! I can't believe all the time, effort and $$$$ that goes into having the perfect game table! The boy is crafty though and it's looking pretty darn good! When he's finished constructing more of his 'stuff' I'll have to show you. I'm impressed!
I will leave you with a picture of Miss Ginger ignoring us.
Don't ask her to turn around! You wouldn't like her when she turns around!
She scares me so.....

Hahahaha -- what's Ginger doing in that second-to-last picture -- studying the floral pattern on the sofa???
