Historically speaking an action packed day. I hope you have a very, very Happy Birthday.

Happy Birthday, Vest! I hope you enjoy your day...and the enjoyment continues. :)

Today, 15th, is a friend of mine's birthday. We've known each other since 1965. She turned 83 today. We became friends when I commenced working for her now late husband after I left Gympie to live and work in Brisbane....all those years ago.

Many happy returns of the day Vest!

Here's hoping you have a red lettered one :-)

(And just as an aside - it was on this day, July 15th in 1960, I met The Golfer (aka the love of my life) in a swimming pool in Nicosia Cyprus)

Take care

Cathy

Ec.Lee.Cathy. Today is also St Swithin's day, And also would have been my Sister's 90th Birthday too, she left for heaven so I was informed 20 years ago. It has been estimated that 31% of my known relatives are Cancerians. Thank you lovely ladies for your birthday greetings.

Cathy. So you had a good look before you bought. Much the same or nearly like the Lady who fell in love at first sight of her Hubby on the nudist beach.
