Baby to Thirteen! How fast time flies.

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.

Look Who Arrived in the Mail Today

Happy 90th Birthday to the Queen of England today.

My sister sent me a package to cheer me.  The unexpected box was waiting for me on the porch when I got home this afternoon.

My friend V was with me and got to share the experience and fun first hand.  Vincie asked, “Who thinks to make such things?”

Check out Solar Queen 90th Birthday Edition by Kikkerland Design.

I had to video her waving so you could get the full effect. The solar panel is at the top of her handbag. No battteries necessary.




   And here is how the real Queen spent her birthday today

There are two machines. The one on the right took Euros but was unlit.

A choir was singing O Holy Night and that’s the soloist image on the flat screen.
