It was a great birthday party for Henry. We were thinking of having goat cart rides as the entertainment, but Stella and Andy are still too small to put to work, so we rented “jumpy jumps” and put them on the north 40 by the goat pastures and the haystacks. The rainbow is a slip ‘n’ slide – a hose sprinkles it from the top and the kids slide down. Just add water and 10 seven-year-old boys and you’ve got fun! The other you just get in and jump up and down in until you want to barf. You can see the goat pasture to the left of the car.
Afterwards, it was time for cake and ice cream. Henry announced that he wanted to give a speech then dove head first into the ice cream. Nice speech.
The nut doesn’t fall far from the tree, they say.
Back to work today. I still don’t have a time when they’ll run my segment on the Today Show this Saturday. I’ll post it when I do. But they did e-mail asking for some more pitches. They’re interested in a piece on identity theft. So maybe I’ll do it again in a month or so. This time I’ll spend a weekend in NYC, instead of just a night.
