Yes, I know it’s not Friday yet. But hopefully, everyone will be able to handle this – admittedly – highly irregular deviation from proper blogging norms and standards.
Recently, a certain member of the Our Shiputzim Editorial Board celebrated what I’m told was a milestone birthday.
To mark the occasion, the younger inhabitants of TRLEOOB* (with help and encouragement from TRLEOOB’s senior-most resident) surprised the aforementioned board member with a beautiful assortment of homemade cards and 3-D birthday greetings:
And since a birthday party requires a cake, the young party planners went all out and baked a double-layer chocolate cake complete with chocolate frosting:
All together now: kol hakavod, tza’ir bakers! (Hat tip: MAG)
I have it on good authority that the board member in question was deeply moved by the gala celebration. Moreover, I’ve been asked to convey the guest of honor’s extreme gratitude and appreciation to everyone involved.
Update: The same board member, whose friends arranged a truly wonderful evening out in honor of the birthday, has requested that I also take this opportunity to thank the dear Our Shiputzim reader and commenter who planned, initiated, and organized the event. So, thank you!!!
!שבת שלום ומבורך
