A surprise

Sunday was Ray's birthday and we spent all day at the Garden Fair. It went really well and we sold a lot of stuff. Packing up, taking down the canopy and loading it all into the pickup was hard work and we were really tired. We headed home to prepare for a birthday dinner with our family. As we rounded the corner onto our street look what we saw:
As we continued down the street we saw stick figures holding numbered candles—60 in all—chalked on the pavement.

It culminated with a drawing of fireworks right in front of our house.

We have the coolest neighbors. Thanks, guys.


  1. What a wonderful display! [the chalk bday greeting] And think of the fun they had doing it. We live on 'dirt' roads here in our neck of W.WA state, so I have been known to put up 'road signs'... *\;)

  3. That is soooo cool!

  4. I can't tell you how much I love that! I've been offline more than usual the last few days because of houseguests, but I want to wish Ray a belated happy birthday, at least.
