My Last Birthday Present From Dad

Today is my birthday so I thought this post would be appropriate. After we bought the computer back from dad since he couldn't really use it well, he then paid for a printer for me and gave me a beautiful cabinet he had made a long time ago for the church. He had told the church board that if they could have it for as long as they wanted to use it, but if they didn't use it, he would like it back. For years it was used in his back room but he gave it to me to use as my printer cabinet when I got a printer.

My cat that I got from dad's as a kitten, Spunky Doodle, likes to crawl inside it whenever I open the door. I'm so glad I took her in. I'm sure my dad would be very pleased that his former kitten enjoys the cabinet too!

I hope you had a wonderful Birthday this week! I always thought December birthday kids were cool! Not so lucky because of getting less presents but definitely cool : )

Sister Sue: Thanks for taking the time to watch the video--glad you liked it!

ipod headphones: Think you misunderstood. My dad gave the cabinet to me.

Life With Kaishon: I never felt gypped at all, in fact, just the opposite because people were in the shopping mood.
