Happy Birthday!!

So it is both my friend Andy and Alanna's birthday today, so I am showing them some Blog love.

I've known Alanna since 7th grade, when she came to Wittenberg Middle School. Though High School is where we really became good friends. I remember many nights during the summer laying on her trampoline with friends, and talking the night away. I am not sure if the statute of limitations has run out, so I will be vague, but a few nights involved dark clothes, late nights, and lawn ornaments. Although I think it all started with a shopping cart. Anyway, Alanna is a great person and a better friend. Happy Birthday Alanna.

I've known Andy for quite some time, he has been one of my best friends. Out of all of my friends he has probably been present at a majority of my Perkins Coffee fueled rants. In High School Perkins was often a late night meal spot, and I had a penchant for drinking coffee with about 15 packets of sugar. Often on the ride home, I would end up ranting on about something while Andy had to take it all in. He often tried to kill me with his snowmobile, as he pulled me behind it on a tube. He helped me get my first job, as a maintenance technician at Wilderness Crossing. From what I remember he was present the first time I got drunk.

Some of my favorite times in High School were Cross Country meets. There was a great group of seniors, and not only were we a fairly successful team, but we had a lot of fun as well. One of those was when he instigated the toilet papering of our CC coaches house. Which was the only time I went toilet papering.

Overall Andy and I have been through a lot, I am happy that he has put up with me all these years, and allowed me to call him a friend.

Happy Birthday Andy!
