At the beginning of the month, I mentioned that my two sisters both had birthdays during January and posted a picture of the two of them together. Betty’s was on the 2nd. and although I didn’t show a picture of her by herself, she won’t mind that I am now going to single out Nan. In fact I’m quite sure she’s very happy about that, but hey Betty, if you like, I can always find another picture of you by yourself that I’ll be glad to post on here. Let me know.
I wasn’t around when this picture of Nan was taken, because of course I hadn’t been born yet, or as my mother used to say, “I was picking daisies”. How she came up with that expression when I would ask why I wasn’t in any of these pictures is beyond me. I remember getting a little teary eyed when she told me that though, because I didn’t want to be out picking any daisies, I wanted to be in the pictures too. Now of course I just snicker about that.
But anyhow, without further ado, here she is. And except for the fact that she is now much taller, a little?? older, a lot?? wiser, has gray hair instead of brown, keeps both feet firmly on the ground instead of on benches, (not sure about that one because I saw a picture of her dancing around in red shoes not too long ago), she looks exactly the same as she did those many years ago. Uh huh.
And isn’t she just the cutest little thing?
Hope you have a Happy Birthday tomorrow, Nan.
Hope you enjoy your birthday cake.
Hope you don’t plan on lighting all those candles on that cake.
Hope your smoke alarm has a new battery.
Hope all the firemen are as good looking as they are in their calendars.
