Thankful for that twinkle

Friday, November 08, 2013

I am thankful that 61 years and approximately 9 months ago,
I was merely a twinkle in my dad's eye.

Dad and mom were married on Groundhog's day in 1952,
and 9 months and 6 days later . . . . . . guess who showed up?!

(This is the only childhood pic I have.)

Today I had DH all to myself. We went to lunch (had that hamburger that we didn't get yesterday) and then did some wine tasting at Bridgeview and Foris - two of my fav wineries in our area.

Thank each of you for the many birthday greetings. You guys rock!!!

It's been a great day!

    Are your parents still alive? Your birthday means more to our parents than it does to us, just as our kids' birthdays are gift days for them, but a trip down memory lane for us.
