You'll Always be Abefroeman to Me!!!

I get a lot of people who ask me about B's facebook name. Its Abefroeman Sausage-King.
It goes all the way back to 1986 when a little movie with (back then) a little name, Matthew Broderick starred in Ferris Buellers Day off.

Brian was a junior then and living it up in high school. Now he wasn't living in Chicago (the movie was filmed) but that is where he was born and let me tell you, from the stories I've heard, Brian was Ferris.
(See video below for an even more detailed explanation)
Always getting away with it, friends with every single different group of kids, always up to something, dating the prettiest girl and a smooth talker. I'll never forget years later reading through his high school year books and one of the common themes was, I never saw anyone sleep in class as much as you and still pass.  :0)
Of course, there were others like, how good of a friend he was/is, how he was always there for them, how he was so much fun/life of the party and how much people knew he would be a success.

And here we are X number of years later just celebrating his 43rd birthday and I am so blessed I get to do life with him.
He certainly doesn't party the way he used to (I'm sure his liver thanks him) but he is still the life of it. He is still friends with a lot of high school buddies (thanks Facebook), and for the most part always up to something. His latest something is finding the right rifle.

Sometimes you just know something even though you don't know. Does that even make sense? Well sitting at that managers meeting almost 18 years ago I will never forget looking at him and just knowing I was gonna make him mine. It sounds cheesy but I'm glad we took the chance because I wouldn't have my life any other way. B makes this journey of life a blast. He makes me laugh, he's a trustworthy, selfless, and dedicated, a man of integrity and He loves God and our family with his whole heart.

                                                     HAPPY YOU DAY BRIAN!!!!

By the way, if you haven't seen the movie...GO and rent it!!!!
