A Tall Visitor....

Yesterday...

As we read outside...

A tall visitor appeared...

My boyfriend gave him a piece of sausage...

And...

Then...

He wouldn't leave...

Hahaha!







A few of his friends showed up too...

Apparently...

They heard it was my birthday...

And...

They wanted some sausage too!

No sausage for me...

More chicken soup, please!

The sun is shining...

2 nice long walks on the beach...

Gonna celebrate with dinner out, another day....when I feel better...:o)

Hope you are all having a great day...

What were you up to today?

Cheers!    From the birthday "girl" :o)

  1. holy cow! or. i mean holy crane!
    might not be a good idea to run out of sausage...
    i mean ... by the looks of those talons.
    happy birthday girl.
    hope you feel better soon.
    and btw... that was alka seltzer plus cold and or flu remedy.
    suppose to make you feel better while you're suffering. :)

  3. Happy birthday, Linda! ♫♪ I wasn't sure if you were going to announce it on your blog, so I kept my message this morning discreet. But now, I'll yell it out for you to hear all the way there. We did have sunshine today, and I'm sure you had something to do with it! Feel better soon. For now, enjoy a quiet evening celebrating. We are headed out to dinner and I will raise my glass of wine to you and your health. Cheers! xo
