Good to be alive at sixty-five.
Happy Medicare card to me. I can get that free bus pass now.
My sister and I are in Columbus OH on the big birthday eve after our family gatherings and driving over 1700 miles.
Laura and James hosting a July 4th birthday celebration for me tomorrow.
Here’s a photo collage with some of my favorite things- my family, pignoli, fireworks, coffee ice cream, raspberries, Zeke’s coffee, reading books, teapots, knitting and sock monkeys. Oh yes, a few shots of me throughout the years.

A valentine collage of some of the couples I’ve had the privilege to photograph on their special days, capturing them loving one another.
Happy thirteenth birthday dear granddaughter Anna Catherine.Here is your birthday blogpost.
You are a lovely young woman. You are the one who made us grandparents.
You are kind, thoughtful, responsible, generous and loving. (Just a few adjectives to describe your character)
What a happy day when you were born.
Sunday night October 9 (can you see that the chocolate cupcakes form a one and a three?)
Here you are brand new with your grandmothers- Ruthie and Marlene. You gave us the name Froo Froo. So now we are Froo Froo Ruthie and Froo From Marlene to all the grandkids!
Happy Birthday to you! Here you are with your family at the Mellow Mushroom tonight.
And without the corny balloon birthday hat. 10-6-2016
I remember your 10-10-10 birthday post when you were so skilled at the Hula Hoop! You can watch on youtube
Last year it was a Dozen Years of Love
your FF Ruthie
My colleague and friend gave me this card that’s she’s been saving for when she’d see me.
She’s had it for me for a year, for my retirement last June.
We gathered together for another colleague’s retirement Thursday evening.
I love that she gave it to me tonight and I’m reading the message on the little change purse.
Plus a nice gift card to spend at the bookstore. Wow! It’s a feel good message all around and never too late. Fun to receive.
Great photo. Great card.
Hope you don’t mind my posting it.

From the April wedding in Austin, Texas.
David Lujan co-owner(with his wife) & curator of Black Lagoon: art+ yoga and artist. He tended the bar at the wedding celebration and made the little fairy chairs out of the champagne tops. He was sketching a tree house for his daughter, as I remember. I must carry a reporter’s notebook to write down the details.
