My Twin Brother

I have been meaning to do a post about my "twin brother" & now seems like the perfect time, ya see, he just celebrated his birthday!

So, I guess I need to give a bit of info on him. His name is Leland & we worked together 16 years ago at a certain grocery store. He worked in the bakery & would give me sour cream donuts. I haven't seen him since those days & we reconnected on facebook. Well, before we knew it we were discovering just how much alike we are. And not only that, but the parallels of our lives is staggering. We also share a great love of LUCY, among many, many, many other things! Hence the reason we are "twins." If you are my friend on facebook, you have often seen us going back & forth in the comments. He is hysterical & just about everywhere I go, I am asked "Who is Leland?" He is a hoot & a joy to get to know.

Since it was his birthday, I knew I wanted to make him an ornament. I was thinking a Lucy one, since he is going to have a Lucy tree this year. But one night he was joking & said I should make an ornament that says "Fiddle Farts" on one side & "Poot" on the other (these are two of his infamous phrases). I knew then & there that's what his ornament would be. Of course, he had no clue as to what I was up to.

D & I went over to his house on Monday night, to deliver his birthday present & it was the first time we have seen each other in 16 years. I got to meet his Mom & of course Murphy. We sat out on their big front porch & had the best time laughing & chatting. And I even came home with gifts!


My "Twin" with his surprise!
Glenda had a pink Superman crown just for D.

Here we are!
Getting some Murphy loves.

Look what Leland gave me. *I think I am gonna tear up*
 And Glenda gave me this...She knows I collect milk glass. I love it!

 This is Leland's very special & truly unique ornament.
