Connie suggested that he cut off the ashes and move them as the cake was cut so that it would look like the cigar was being smoked down!
Here's birthday boy Jim:
Jim and Ginger
About the time we were finishing up Jim's cake, the waitress came over with what appeared to be a box on FIRE! It was another cake, but not for Jim; for Connie and I! Ginger had gotten us our own anniversary cake! That was a nice surprise!
Thanks for the lovely cake Ginger! This was a very nice anniversary for us and birthday for Jim! Very nice night!
