Happy Birthday Green Thing!

Natalie (aka Green Thing), and Jen (Firecracker) at the Living Green Expo

The bad thing about an October birthday when you work for the Fair is that your birthday gets set aside for a couple of weeks. Same if you’re the boss (no Boss’ Day celebrations here until November). Today is Green Thing’s birthday and we all want to wish her a happy birthday. We love you Natalie!

I haven’t gotten any birthday greetings yet today, but I’ve been called Natalie several times in the last few days. It’s kinda funny because when Natalie was our intern she was often mistaken for me. I have the utmost respect for Natalie and of course, I don’t mind being mistaken for being a “few” years younger either! So, I’ll keep answering to Jen and Natalie…and I’ll be happy to take any birthday greetings, too!
