Whaaaat??? You're 78? Sylvia, you are an absolute inspiration. I want to be you when I get older, lol.

Wow … I would never have guessed you were of the age you celebrate. You are young at heart, that’s for sure!!! How wonderful it is that your entire clan is well and can gather for such a special occasion. They are fortunate to come from such excellent stock. Blooming good genes, indeed!

What a wonderful collage. I'm glad you had a great week of celebration. The only thing I can argue with is that 'blooming idiot' comment.

Arija said...

Now that's the way to celebrate a birthday, at least a week! It is lovely when the children pull out all the stops. Hope they keep it up all month!

Beautiful scenes, Sylvia. 78 is sounding younger and younger to me every year.

This is really a beautiful collage. I have just experienced a bit of frustration with some contractors here, so your quote is helpful. I'll bet my bearings again and get a grip on the joy!

Belated happy birthday to you, Sylvia! I've never thought that you are that age, you really think and look much much much younger. How fortunate I am to be a part of your world.

The collage looks a condensation of your happy home. Stay cool, beautiful, and alive and kicking.

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
