HAPPY 15TH BIRTHDAY NIECE JORDAN and HAPPY 22ND BIRTHDAY TO MECHELLE!

Jordan turns 15 today and can't wait to get her learner's permit. Everybody get off the streets while you can.
This is my babydoll. She's a great kid and one of the things I like best about her is that she's honest to the core and never hesitates to protect the underdog, whether that's her deaf sister or anyone being picked on at school.
She got tickled here and couldn't smile straight. That's very Jordan. She tries to be in a cliched teenager bad mood but she's such a happy kid at heart she can't manage it for long.

Mmmm....stawberry shakes make her smile.
Okay, so she's not a morning person exactly but look at those rosy cheeks!
These were taken in a series. She was trying to look mad at me for taking so many pics. See how well it worked? "Trying" , not "succeeding".
Spoiled...well, but only a little. And it's by me and uncle Gene.
Again, trying to be serious. Can't help it. She has to laugh. That's my girl.
I have no idea what the hand signs me. I don't ask. In sign language the left hand is a "G". I'll stick with that and be happy.

A big happy 22nd birthday to our little Mechelle girl from respiratory school. I'd do a big photo collage on her, but amazingly, or not, she always has a drink her hand in nearly every picture I have of her. Snicker. Okay, how about this one of her and I together?
Jones used to say that Mechelle and Chris are he and I before life kicked the shit out of us. I'll agree with that. Or as Aunt Miranda used to say "Two names; one brain." That's me and Mechelle. She's such a good person. I hope I'm like her when I grow up.
