It’s birthday season around here. I thought this would make a nice gift for my daughter and I was right – she loved it. It doesn’t make noise but Sami was using the food processor while I filmed this. My timing was off though so you will have to imagine the roaring.
This is not as weird as it might seem upon first viewing. We saw this on someone’s lawn one time when we were driving around looking at decorations and she, dinosaur fan that she is, was quite taken with it. I’ve been looking for it ever since and finally found it 3 weeks ago. We wrapped it in black garbage bags.
If ever a person loved where she lives, it’s her. Unfortunately, it is not here in my house. It’s in Philadelphia. so there was also a print of Rittenhouse Square, which she has been known to frequent.
Here’s some random Instagrams of that location. I think it’s a pretty good capture of the feel of the place.
I had my own mat with me when I went to Michael’s for a frame so I walked over to the framing counter and asked the gent there how much he would charge to put it all together for me. He didn’t answer – he just did it for no charge. And the frames were BOGO so I made out pretty good when I thought I’d be taking a bath on it and she seemed to like this gift, too.
Does all of America know what a Black & White cookie is? Or will I thrill just the northeast when I tell you that her birthday cake was a giant B & W from the Dixie Lee?
So happy birthday, little girl. It was a lovely time and I’m glad we all go to enjoy it together. The next two birthdays that are coming up are for the I Don’t Want Anything I Don’t Need Anything Don’t Get Me Anything type of people.
