50

showing off dress (in bag full of hand me downs from sister-in-law), second hand boots I bought at the car-boot-sale yesterday! and ukulele: birthday present from husband, now I HAVE to learn how to play!



T graciously agreed to wear a party hat and  join in the party fun, amazing how he manages to stay cool-looking, no matter what!

Greetings from New Mexico Saskia; first you have the coolest haircut, I have short hair too but it needs a punked style as grace told me recently. Well, I think that will be easy to do as I'll just let the fierce winds that are here, style my hair from now on! You look in a word, spectacular in your dress but it is your boots that I am drooling over...

thank you Marti, oh wind blown hair style sounds wonderful; my hair gets better as it gets greasier: more lift;-)
the boots are great (and what a lucky find at the car boot sale yesterday, btw a really cool lady was selling them) I know and because they've been worn they're supple and soft and delicious to wear; they remind me and my friends here of Emma Peel, a main character in the English series The Avengers from the '60-ies

Better than Emma Peel and that's
saying something.
GB will love your playing in the
dark or near dark as will the
others.
a perfect instrument.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, dear you....

You are the bomb and I have never said that before in my life. Happy Birthday!!!

Marti said...

Well I'm back for a moment to say Feliz Cumpleanos, Happy Birthday in Spanish.

Happy Birthday to you!! You sure enough rock the dress-boots-hair look and T. looks like he's saying "Oh brother, here she goes again!!" Have fun with the ukelele! The only thing I could ever pluck out was the little tuning ditty...'my dog has fleas'! Haha Enjoy your celebration :)

dear Marti, Mo, Grace, Julie and Nancy: thank you all!!! I had a WonderFull 50th Birthday and feel happy, alive and confident enough to celebrate a couple more before I hang the ukelele in the willows*

('to hang -something- in the willows' is a Dutch saying, meaning you're giving -something- up forever, either thru retirement or even death)

Julie S said...

wow, wouldnt that be a willow tree to actually make!
