Yesterday, my wife Paige celebrated her birthday. Last night after Thai food, we made it home to cut the cookie cake Paige had requested. Our almost four-year-old granddaughter had been longing for a piece of that cake since we furtively picked it up Wednesday.
After we sang Happy Birthday, it was time to get down to business. My daughter told the grand baby that she needed to wait her turn, that Ganmaw had first dibs.
The little girl looked at the stack of serving plates on the counter, then came out with this zinger: "My plate's on top," she said.
I guess she was right because she got the first slice.
Well, that's the way it is for all of you at the Bookstore in Kilgore and the Coffee Cherry.
Your plate is always on top.
Come see us when you get the chance.
