Meet the REAL King of Terabithia

His name is Mike Valley. His favourite song is a toss-up between “Beth” by Kiss, and “My Ding-a-Ling”, by Chuck Berry. “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” runs a close second. He sang Karaoke before it was invented. He owns a rock polisher and eats Caramel Spread® sandwiches, and he’s the best sword-fighter in the world.

Les & Mike - 1973
34 years later, I have the exact same haircut…

About 10 minutes after this picture was taken, Mike swallowed the quarter hidden in his piece of cake, and spent the rest of the day pissed off about it. I had to Photoshop me over from the other side of the table (along with the window – you know, for the view), and poor Girl with the Plaid Pants got “smeared” out because I just didn’t want to share the limelight. Happy Almost Birthday to me.

I wish he was here – I’d give him his quarter with interest…

This post is for you, Mushy. Something to laugh about while you recuperate… did your mom put money in your birthday cakes? I wanna know…!

  1. We actually just had money cake for Ariel’s birthday in January. The better part was when my mom was walking outside with about half the cake left and she dropped it on the ground. The kids swarmed it like it was gold.

  2. Thanks…that did make me feel better! Funny stuff!

    No, she never put money in my cakes…she knew I didn’t chew my food very well and would have never encountered even a 50-cent piece!
