Happy 2nd Birthday, Maxwell!

Friday , 9, January 2015 Comments Off on Happy 2nd Birthday, Maxwell!

Today my youngest grandson, Maxwell, turns 2 years old. We don’t get to see him or his older sister Jade much, in person, but we do try to Skype with them once every couple of weeks. The last time we Skyped, Maxwell was showing us a song he was learning; “YMCA” by The Village People. […]

Today would have been the 80th birthday of Elvis Aaron Presley, had he not passed away on August 16, 1977 at the age of 42. My mother was a huge fan of everything Elvis, so from an early age I grew up with his presence in my life in the form of his music in […]

Thursday , 1, January 2015 Comments Off on Throwback Thursday – Happy Birthday To Our Own New Year’s Baby

It was 53 years ago today that my little brother was born. I don’t have a photo of him on his birthday that year (maybe he has one he will post), but I do have this photo taken around Christmas time that year, so he’s just about a year old in this picture and I […]

Throwback Thursday – My Father-In-Law’s 72nd Birthday

Thursday , 24, July 2014 Comments Off on Throwback Thursday – My Father-In-Law’s 72nd Birthday

Tomorrow my father-in-law will turn 80 years old, so in honor of his birthday I thought I’d post this photo from 2006 when he was 72 and still riding a bicycle around the neighborhood. He doesn’t look much different today, which has had me searching his attic for his “picture of Dorian Gray”, though I […]

For one thing, you get some great handmade cards and gifts. Last week for my birthday, my oldest granddaughter, Heather, gave me this wonderful birthday card she made herself, incorporating some of my favorite superheroes.   It’s difficult to get the smile off my face every time I look at it! Last month, before Amber […]

A Wonderful Natal Day

I’m not much on celebrating or even acknowledging my birthday, but I DO have to say that today was pretty much a great day, all in all. I received many marvelous messages, emails, phone calls, cards and gifts from family and friends, and am grateful for each one. Enjoyed some nice meals, some of them […]

Thirteen years ago today my daughter brought my first grandchild into our world. He and I have had some great times through the years and I’m looking forward to more of the same in the coming years. Today, he is getting to spend the day at The Magic Kingdom with his mom and little sister, […]

It was 39 years ago tonight, also a Sunday night and just about this time, that my daughter Ann made her grand entrance into the world. I began calling her my princess shortly after her birth and have continued to do so through all the intervening years. Through those years I have watched her grow […]

Today is the (mumble mumble) birthday of my friend Denise. I’m fortunate to be in Orlando and not far from her geographically, so we were able to meet for lunch today at one of her favorite places and spend a couple of hours catching up. As I mentioned to her during lunch, I’m also fortunate […]
