Happy Birthday, Adam!

On Monday, October 10, 1977 this precious young man entered my world. Of course, he was a lot smaller then! He!He! This is Adam, my first nephew and the only child of my youngest sister, Debra, and my BIL Dwade. He was the first grandchild in our family and we all thought he hung the moon! Talkin about spoiled.....every single one of us spoiled him at every available opportunity! Momma and Daddy became Mamaw and Papaw on that day and thus, forever after.

Adam is a wonderful man with a loving heart and so much to give, and by the way, he's available! Sorry Adam, had to throw that in there!!! ;) I will readily admit that I am prejudiced, but he honestly is very kind and loving and adores children. Like so many young men before him, he has struggled to find himself and find his place in this world. I am so proud to say that he has found that place and has become a young man any aunt would be proud to call her own!

Adam is an outdoorsman and loves to do just about anything outdoors. He's not particularly interested in hunting, but does enjoy fishing. He finds so much pleasure in working in his yard and I swear I don't think I've ever met anyone who enjoys mowing their grass so much! In his early twenties, he rode bulls in the local rodeo circuit. Thank God, he gave that up before he got his neck broken! He's much more sensible now....WHEW!!!!!!

Try as I might, it is the most difficult thing to get a picture of this man with his eyes exposed AND open! Actually, I'm just teasing. I just wanted to post this picture because it has my sister and BIL in it with him. I'm pretty proud of all of them!

So, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ADAM! Your Aunt Di loves you and always will. Thank you for being in my life and for caring about your old aunt!
