And the Earth Shook

Around 5:30 this morning people in Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, & Ohio awoke to an earthquake. Apparently it shook for a long time and was the strongest we've ever had in this part of the country. The epicenter was very near my hometown but shook buildings as far away as Chicago and Cincinnati. As far as I know, no real damage was done. Brian felt it here. Me, I slept right through it.

It was 47 years ago today that another earthshaking event occurred. Brian was born. The world will never be the same. I told him yesterday that I'm happy to be married to a guy who is SO far out of my league. He had no clue what that meant and then proceeded to swim in his dinner plate getting his crawfish all over him, and half the table. Then we went to see the Stones movie and just as the Stones were taking stage, he went to get more salt for his popcorn. Who does that??

LOL! You definitely have a one-of-a-kind husband! I knew it was his b-day and have been meaning to mention in on my blog. How was the Stones movie? I can not WAIT to see it. I know Keith is your Stone, Mick is mine...can't help myself...the guy is an icon :)

I am glad the earth decided to shake somewhere in the US other than CA for once!

Hey Amber,

Tell Brian Happy Birthday from us!

I guess it's okay that you went to see the Stones movie with your husband instead of us. Did they open up with "Sympathy For The Devil"? Is that why Brian went to get salt?

Does this mean you aren't going with us?

Happy birthday to Brian.

So far out of league? As in which way? You in the major leave and Brian in the minor?
