I was trying to sneak by you all today and not post. But my good friend Postcard Cindy, who doesn't have a blog yet, was disappointed, and then Kim at Heart Shaped Hedges went and blabbed and wished me a Happy Birthday.

That still didn't make me feel too guilty about not posting today. I mean seriously people I'm flattered, but get a life out there and enjoy your Holiday Weekend. So along comes
Rebeckah at Life With Kaishon, and then Chesapeake Bay Woman Life in Mathews and Cortney at the Cortney Chronicles, whining about no post wishing me a Happy Birthday!

OK, I'm not making excuses, but I was gone overnight with my granddaughter and her little brother JJ. Today, I spent part of the day washing, ironing and packing up some clothes to mail to CA. It's cheaper than taking my summer stuff like bikinis and thongs to Alaska and pay for a second piece of luggage. When I get to CA I will mail my snow suit and warm weather clothes back to TX.

So, yes, it's my birthday. I will share a few pictures of me that I was able to find. I only have a few of my childhood pictures, and they weren't scanned so I did the best I could to get them on here.

This is me the first time I was a butterball. Rita knit my hat and sweater...not that you can see them very well.

Then at the age of seven I made my First Communion. Once again, Rita took control of all the details and gave me a perm. She also made my cotton eyelet dress with the big collar. I'm not complaining, but ask any Catholic girl who's preparing for her First's all about chiffon and organdy a mini bride. Brides don't wear cotton.

So how do you like my "do" in 1962?

Is this one in 1982 any better?

This is me when I retired last year.
and of course this is me now.

Those funky pictures are from check it out and see how you looked.

If you're a Big Brother fan, Jerry fell in the pool today!! He backed up and went right into it.

You started out cute, then in the middle something about your appearance went haywire, then in the last two photos you got cute again. That is so funny how people do that.

Happy b-day! I can't wait til you go on your cruise!

boy do I wish I had a scanner....i have some great pics (somewhere).....and, funny thing, you did have that short hairdo, remember your "dorothy hammill"??

That 1962 do looks more like had that platinum bee hive thingy.

Remember when you had professional pics taken with Charlie, (bwaaa haaa haaaa, so funny when people treat their dogs like real children.)

I hope you are bringing your lap top and camera on the cruise....we want all the funny pics of can do a total week on tourists and their wacky behavior on cruises. Make sure to stay up late and go to the bars, because you know that tourists are really fun when they get drunk on their cruises.

I think I might have pictures of your 30th birthday...when you were "over the hill"...boy did I think you were old. I was in 6th grade, and in my new, green, wrap around skirt, STYLIN'

happy bday.

Those last two shots are great - clearly retirement and life in the compound agrees with you.

When is your cruise? I can't wait to hear about the adventures.

Grandma J said...

HSH I never had that short do! I had a wedge cut, It didn't flip up like that to look like an orange juice squeezer thing.

Please find the pictures that you were supposed to give me five years ago. I want them.

Rebeckah said...

I love your hat and sweater set that Rita made. You were an adorable baby : )! I also love your communion dress even though it was cotton and not organdy! You always went against the mold.

Suzanne said...

Oh happy day. I hope you have a fantastic day, week, month, year oh heck you know what I mean.
You have to post about your schedule...I am confused. Are you going to CA or Alaska?
I really need to know....
The pictures are great. I love that yearbook site, too funny.

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I make money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my web site to get additional info.
