A Milestone . . .

Today is my birthday  :-)  It's a milestone one.  Which milestone it is will be left to your imagination  ;-)

This is Fernando, the Family Flamingo. 


Whoever's birthday it is becomes keeper of Fernando until the next family birthday.  He spends his summers with me, and will be safely ensconced here in the sunroom until August  :-)

I would have been spending the day today with my cousin, ME, doing fun things like pedicures, etc.  I will still be spending the day with her - but unfortunately we will be staying close to home because she's on ice for the duration.

Not a great photo because I took it with my phone.  She was crouched down talking to a child in the classroom, and when she went to get up, she wobbled/stumbled.  She tried to regain her balance but was unable to do so.  Her leg is broken in three places.  You don't want to see the X-rays. 

So, we'll still celebrate my birthday, just not as originally planned.  I'm doing some things here in the house and then will get cleaned up and go over and spend the day with her. 

Pretty wild . . .

Eeee; that's not good! I hope you two can have some fun together in SPITE of the leg; maybe her pain meds will make her EXTRA fun – ha!

Happy Birthday! I'm thinking about those birthday dinners at the Spring Fling and deciding we should do that again sometime.
