Is one of my 3 favorite months. (the others are March, Mrs. S's b'day and June, mine!) DH's birthday was the 22nd and Ms. A's is the 24th.
Random facts....
Ms. A was born on the 2nd day of Rosh Hashana. I thought it was soooooo cooool that they announced her birth during services.

We had the choice of birthdays for her....we chose to give her her own day that she didn't share with her dad.

We went for dinner at the Brown Derby the night before she was born.

I expected a redhead this time!

DH is the youngest of 3 brothers all 1 year or less apart....born to a mom who was not yet 20 and had been married 3 years....and is still married 52 years later

This picture will not be either of their favorites.....but I love it. We had gone to Ohio to visit family and had to be at the airport at some ung-dly hour like 5:30 a.m. After a hysterical night in the hotel room where we needed to go to the front desk to request that the porn be turned off the television, where we went to Denny's (lovely hotel food) for dinner, asked for a to-go cup and the guy thought we wanted a souviner, and a night of poor sleep, we made it to the airport.....with no coffee having been injested. Ms. A must have her a.m. coffee at that hour and was grumpy when we hit security and the ever friendly TSA employees. Now you'd think that they'd have been much nicer at that hour but they were barking up a storm. I was watching Ms. A getting more and more irritated (that irritation began at the ticket counter) & I actually could see her face changing. I looked at DH and said, "QUICK, go buy coffee!" (we'd made it through the security way ahead of her) As she finally exited the security area I slammed the coffee in her hand. She was grumbling and grousing and grumbling and grousing. We sat down and like magic, the caffeine took effect, she looked at me and said, "coffee, coffee, coffee, coffee!" and became her normal self. This photo is of her and DH ....she is in a much happier state AFTER the coffee . DH is pretending to be severe!!

These are repeat photos from Las Vegas!!!
Happy Birthday to my September crew!

That post had me LAUGHING maybe it's a September baby thing but I feel Ms. A's pain on the coffee. I also must absolutely agree that September is the best month my grandmother and I share a birthday at the beginning of the month Mr. Bunny's is no lie the 24th, and the my best friend who is also a red head is the 27th. Good month I say.

Love your family stories. This one had me laughing because my sister-in-law is like that about her coffee. If she doesn't have a cup in the morning you DON'T want to be around her. When they ran out once, her husband got up early, drove down to the local McDonald's, and bought a cup of coffee to hand her when she woke up. Even she will admit that without her coffe she's mean in the morning!
