my friend linney

As the saying goes... everybody loves Linney. And on this fine day of her birth I would like to share my love for Lindsay Waters the III by posting some of my favorite pics of this good person, dear friend and "sports buddy."

Remarkably, young Linnah was able to stay humble and real despite bring raised in the upper echelons of Mapleton society...

although an occasional stylish portrait was allowed for posterity sake.

Winston served as a loyal companion. You are missed Winston.

During high school, Lindsay was able to balance the rigors of SHS's fiercely demanding academic classes and an active social calendar with ease.

Also during high school I flirted with her boyfriends (except the italian gangster) and she later kissed my would be hubby (or so he claims). Remember these offensive shirts?

There was a short hermit-ish time at USU as roommates.
Then the European motley crew.

We even tried to end all our woes with a Nutella suicide. I'm so glad we didn't succeed and I can be here to wish you a fabulous 33.
Happy Birthday good buddy!

I am so awesome. At least I thought so until I saw these pictures.

We were such great wannabe hippies in our tie-dye shirts…except they weren’t shirts. Remember?

I received such a great education at SHS that I actually had to look up 'echelons' to make sure you weren’t making fun of me. Oh wait, you were making fun of me? Don’t most 10 year olds have handmade matching dresses with their porcelain dolls?

I dated the Italian gangster to get you to stop kissing all of my boyfriends.

Nobody looks as good wearing Nutella as we do. I only wish you lived closer so you could make me a seven layer cake layered with Nutella.

Thanks for the great memories. I love ya!

I remember going over to lindsey's house once thinking it was a castle.

She was the first person I ever saw have a phone in their car. It was a novelty. I'll never forget it.

I also remember her greeting you home from your mission with us...

Wow, you guys are old.
