Today Is The Day

Yep I made it 83 long (sad & happy) years.  But I’m glad to say more happy than sad.  Yesterday I check the Lilacs at the gate.

There are buds on both plants a sign of Spring to come.

Hey that is the kind of birthday present that is great to have.

I’m sitting here visiting with you because the zoo has been fed, I have music on the Bose that has my feet tapping, and life is good.  Cindy is working, David & Libby just got up, and Brandy is still tucked in bed.

My flag is hanging outside for now.

Tomorrow I will change to the green hat and shamrocks.  The first of March I will put up the St Patrick’s flag.  The decor for March goes up and Valentine gets packed away.

Cindy got my cake yesterday because she had to work today.

We have been working on eating it yesterday and this morning.  Hey it is my birthday and I can eat it if I want to.

I was a real beauty as a child.

My left hand is on my knee because I scratched it before the picture and was hiding from the shot.

This was yesterday when I was out to breakfast with Cindy. 

She spent all day yesterday getting things done to make it a happy pre birthday for me.  Things like get a new handicapped card for when I’m riding with her.  She took me to the foot doctor’s appointment. We shopped for our breaded shrimp dinner ( which she  cooked).  It was a full and delightful time for me.

I have a trip to the drugstore today because I want to use my birthday coupon.  David said he take me.

Tomorrow it is up to Otisville to the tax man.  ( David will take me again).

Well I’m dressed all in red because it makes me smile and people will see me coming!  Take care I’ll see you later.
