Another Birthday's Come and Gone

Hi There

Gilbert and I went to Bangor, Maine for an overnight sleepy the weekend of my birthday. And since we took a lot of pictures, I decided to write it up - "Vacation Journals".

In the meantime, here's a few pics of gifties that I received, for my birthday...

A birthday card from my friend, Marianna.

Gilbert and I both thought that the picture was EXTREMELY funny!

Marianna took the time to translate it for us...

You still look in great shape!
Real Tight."


Marianna also included some polka dot fabric, for my 2nd Dear Jane!

Elly, from Scotland, send me this card.

What baffled me is that Gilbert says he has difficulty with English, yet understood this card enough to "LOL", at it!

I had sent a little gifty to my friend, Pat... who's now in Florida.

When she received MY gifty, she insisted on sending us some Florida sunshine. Who was I to refuse, especially since it was REAL cold that evening when she offered.


When her parcel arrived here, Gilbert and I BOTH opened it up at out kitchen table.... hoping some ray of sunshine had been captured, harnessed and gently placed into this package.

We both hooted with delight when we saw this cute "Choco-Gator!!!

And the cutest quilty "Thank You" card!

Gilbert says he'll hang it up in his Longarm room.

I received many more gifties but these were on my desk, this evening and I decided to take a few pics and share with you.

Hope you have a Terrific Thursday!

True story...quiche was on special at a tea room for lunch and was on the chalkboard as such. A lady came up and studied it and then told the waiter...she'd like a quickie and a coke. He was laughing so hard he couldn't write the order.
