We took the little lady out to a local tavern last evening and fed and feted her. Here’s the picture I took at our table before the meal was served. Kate (daughter), Cynthia (the birthday girl) and Don (Kate’s S.O.):

We took her home afterwards and let her open her presents. Here she is showing the card and gift she got from Kate:

Wow, it’s a bathtub headrest, she says. Just what I’ve always wanted!

    Thank you very much, Barbara! I will convey your Happy Birthday message to her. She did not want a big celebration but she loved her little one we gave her.
    Thanks! :smile:

    Hi MardY! Please let Cynthia know I’m happy for her nice birthday celebration; she is a very special person who gives so much, and always so pleasant -looking for the bright side ever more, which I so love in a person; may her New Year year be good to her in every way.

    Annette: Thanks very much for you nice comment! We had a great time. Why are you listening to Glen Beck? Here’s a news report on a Glen Beck quote: CNN’s Beck to first-ever Muslim congressman: “[W]hat I feel like saying is, ‘Sir, prove to me that you are not working with our enemies’ ”

    Danielle: Thanks, Danielle. Ouch! I’m tagged! I’m it! See you later…

    Hi Marde,
    Why, indeed! He has just been added to our local radio station and we have non stop garbage flowing from our local station. My old ladies support group has started a petition to protest our local hate munger, Al Kolis. Al thinks we should all have guns. Then, we would have a safe world.
    Have a hopeful day Annette

    Great going, Annette! You’re doing more than I’m doing to stop the right-wing crazies from taking over our media! Good fer you! (Hey, you’re getting better at posting too — it’s not rocket science, is it! 😆 )

    Happy Birthday, Cynthia! How lovely, you all look so happy. Now you should try the timer on that camera so you can get yourself in the picture, Marde. Ask Barb. :)

    Thanks, Missy! I’ll convey your wishes to Cynthia. (She is computer averse.) Yes, we all had a great time that evening of her birthday. (She had not waanted me to post her age.) Yes, I should get with the camera techniques: I’ve never used the timer; it’s time I learned. I’ll ask Barb. :smile:
