Fifty Nine and holding



This is the only baby picture I have of me. I don't think there are any more in the family unless it's the same image.
This was taken when I was 14 months old, October 1954.
Little chubette!


This is me today, age 59 and holding. (although I'm back to being blonde.)

I hope I take advantage of the gift for another chance to get it right.
I want to sail into 60 next year. I have a lot of work to do!

Thanks for all your birthday wishes on FB, the calls and the many gifts, but mostly thank you for your friendship.

xoxo
Love,
Lo♥

  22. Happy Birthday! I'm sorry I missed it - I'm always a day late and a dollar short! Thank you for posting your picture - I've only seen your eyes for so long and although you have beautiful eyes, it was nice to see your face - you have a kindly face - I feel like I know you better now!
