Fifteen: Halfway to the Middle of Getting to Middle Age



15 years ago, the doctor pulled two 6 pound babies out of my belly. They came out 1 minute apart. Mr. Fish swears they are five minutes apart. This is a source of great controversy. But I ask? Who birthed the babies? I mean, really....that is who you should believe!

The twin fishies are my comic relief. Put them to a test. Name any movie and they could quote you a line from it. Now either that means they have an exceptional memory with a clever brain or they waste way too much time watching movies. Either way, I love 'em!

Per the boy's request, their birthday celebration dinner included grilled chicken with hoison barbecue sauce, dutch oven potatoes, cornbread, and homemade root beer.

It was ironic, actually, because I made Fred's dutch oven potatoes. While we celebrated the anniversary of my sons' birth, many gathered to mourn Fred's death. June 1st was his funeral. I honor Fred. May his spirit, memory and recipes live on.

Happy Birthday Buddy Boys! You are my favorite set of twins. Ever.
