Happy Birthday Frans

Wishing you a Happy Birthday and a good 38th year.  Last night at Haps we were talking accident prone sons.  Gladys Ruonavaara had a picture on her cell phone of
her son Jasons leg bone poking through his skin.  She had many more stories of their
Jason.  Then I had to add stories of Frans: aiming at deer (without a gun) from on top
of a load of bales at Takalas with Shawn driving the tractor and Frans ended up with a
broken leg (good thing he was able to manuver or would have landed on his head); trapping and having to get recasted several times because the cast got wet (and stinky),
getting pushed 300 yards by a train and working on firewood when David hollered that
a tree was coming down and you glanced back to see where Ivan was and the tree
glanced off your head and did a permanent dent into the tractor steering wheel.  Then
when the doctor gave you a list of things to watch for in head injuries and you told the
doctor you have several of those sheets at home!  It's been quite a life.  Perhaps more
things are happening in Arizona of which we aren't aware and probably better for my
blood pressure!  Happy Birthday from Ma and Pa.

Mom, I think we could add more... sticking the finger in the fan at Takala's...

Frans, may your birthday be free of accidents! Happy Birthday!

Yes :) And may we add other stories like racing to school on a Ninja and the resulting court date.

We love you Frans!

Hope your day was as awesome as you are.
