Granny Gee's Birthday... Valentine's Day 2013

Granny Gee's Birthday... February 14, 2013
Written By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny

Skip/ Pa Skip... holding birthday flowers to me from our friend, Mary, in Australia
(Skip's eyes are so tired, he needs rest)

Birthday card from my Sweet Husband, Skip...

Now......... if you will notice, there are several pieces of chocolate candy that's been
bitten in half.... half is gone, half is still in the box.  :)))

I love these special flowers from our friend in Australia... when I sat at the table tonight, the scent from them
was so beautiful.  I closed my eyes to enjoy it.  Aren't they lovely?

I wish I had taken photos all through the day.  Today has been a most special, unusual, beautiful birthday.

We went shopping, went to one of our favorite restaurants... got to see Patty and Jim, the owners.  It's been quite some time since we have seen them.  It was fun talking to them.... :)))

Skip and I went to the printer's shop to get cards made up with links to my book, and to my blog, and my email.  Now, instead of writing out all to give to someone, or run to make a copy... I can just give a card.

Tomorrow, I'll get my package ready to mail... with a copy of my book, and the necessary forms, and payment... for my copyright.

What a special day... Happy Birthday To Me, To Granny Gee!  :)))


  1. * IT WAS SOO GOOD TO SEE YOU, TOO :-) xo. We always enjoy your company & this time was even more "amazingly" SPECIAL. Thank YOU for choosing our Restaurant for your Birthday Dinner. Looking forward to future fun conversations, xo Patty xo

    1. Hello Patty! I am so, so happy you are here now! It was extra special seeing you yesterday. I look forward to you being here! Love, Gloria :)))

  2. Everything looks so wonderful in these pictures! I know they do in your home too. I wish I had known you wanted cards made. I have a ton of them! Remember I use to do them as a side job? I have so many left because I seldom make cards anymore. I am so glad you had a wonderful birthday and Valentine's Day. You deserve the best! Love, Ms. Nancy
