Happy 70th Birthday to my favorite man and goofball. He’s blocking his hairline, but please check out the mullet behind him. I love you to the moon and back pops! 💗😍🍰🌟🎈😘As suspected, he ordered the Humpty Dumpty omelette with cheese and ham. If bets were placed on breakfast orders, I’d’ve taken this one to the house.

My grandma taught me well.
Not to mention, she and I think your yard and grill game is so overrated.
