Shake It Up Baby!

Are you familiar with the John Hughes film Ferris Bueller's Day Off? Well, my son, Noah, is a cross between Matthew Broderick's character, Ferris, in that film and Mother Teresa. To illustrate the Ferris part of that statement I will sight the scene where Ferris has boarded a parade float manned by a lot of Bavarian milk-maid-looking lovelies and grabs the microphone and says to the crowd:

"Ladies and gentlemen, you are such a wonderful crowd, we'd like to play a little tune for you. It's one of my personal favorites and I'd like to dedicate it to a young man who doesn't think he's seen anything good today - Cameron Frye, this one's for you."

And then he proceeds to rock the crowd with "Shake It Up Baby," Beatles style. Take a look!

The riotous fun that you see and feel from that clip is what I have experienced every day since 6:07 am on November 2, 1995. The Mother Teresa part comes in after the parade is over - that's where Noah stays to help clean up.

You may have outgrown my lap, my darlin' boy, but never my heart. Happy 14th birthday Noah Stephenson!

This ones for you!

Happy Birthday, Noah! Fourteen is a wonderful age. The best time I ever had was with a fourteen-year-old in Paris (my grandson a few year ago.)

Have a great year, great kin (we met in Warrenton at the blog party.)

Best wishes to the birthday boy! Funny because I have the female equivalent of Ferris and same age, lol. Sometimes I don't know whether to shout or laugh at some of the things she does, but we wouldn't have them any other way would we? Let's face it they must of got it from somewhere, I blame her dad!;-)) x
