We bought Frank a new personalized leather guitar strap for his guitar. He has a band called "Driving Force", and several guitars, so we knew he'd get good use out of this gift.
Besides his love for music, he also has a "need for speed"! Frank races a '67 Camero on the 1/4 mile dragstrip at Quaker City Raceway in Salem, Ohio. It has been a family affair since the kids (my grandkids) were little ... now THEY are both racing. Difference is they race Jr. Dragsters and only go 1/8 mile. With his love for racing ... there is always a need for repairs ... hence his second gift ... a gift card from Summit Racing, where he can always find what he need + more!!!
Here is a photo of Frank coming off the starting line ... "go git 'em Frankie".
The evening was short for us, but we had so much fun in just those couple of hours. Their friends the Mashburns are wonderful people! Dr. Medford Mashburn is an amazing person! And yes, he is a real doctor and an awesome one at that! If you have time to do some soul-searching reading, check out his blog ... The Journey Learned ... you won't regret the visit!! His lovely wife, Sandy is such a joy to be around and their two sons Jack & Travis came to celebrate Frank's birthday too!! It's always healthy to laugh and believe me, we had a heaping spoonful of laughter at this gathering!!! Here's a couple photo's to show you why ...
The waitresses from the restaurant all came out to sing Happy Birthday to Frank ... just like they enjoy doing for everyone on their birthday. But of course Frank made it extra special when while they were singing ... he held up this package which had his name on it so they would know to sing "Happy Birthday Dear Frank" Happy Birthday to You!! We all cracked up laughing ... what fun!!!
Thanks for popping in today and sharing in Frankie's Birthday Celebration!! Hope you had fun ... I know WE SURE DID!!! Happy Day Everyone!!
