Of Cakes and Furry Mammals

Sparkles just informed me that TODAY is her kids' birthday and she's decorating her room for their party.  She has 14 kids.  Oddly, all 14 seem to share the same birthday.

What's a grandmother to do?  The cake isn't baked.  The presents aren't bought OR wrapped.  And, the kids are nowhere to be found. 

I feel so unprepared.


Yep, you guessed it.  (You did guess, right?)  Buckeye Chuck is supposed to make an appearance tomorrow.  Any Marionites worth their weight in something (?) will de-ice their vehicles tomorrow morning, partake in Spam sandwiches and watch to see if Buckeye Chuck has spotted his shadow or if he's iced in.

I was trying to explain the odd holiday to Sparkles and when her dad stuck his head in the room to see what we were up to, she began jumping up and down and shouted, "Daddy!  Daddy!  Know what's this week?!?  It's Hog's Ground Day!"

Or something like that.

Well, if you haven't bought presents for all your grandkids, then I'm not going to bother either!
