This month, Dave turned 60! He is an old friend of Richard's, they went to school together. Oops, did I say "old"? No, Dave, I should say a LONGTIME friend! That is Dave pictured above with Richard when we visited England a few years ago. Note: Never ask a tall man with long arms to shake someone's hand when he is standing right next to that person.. Another example of my bad photography, my friends!. Still, it is good to see their smiling faces so just look at that! Happy Birthday, Dave! Number 60, but with my magical ways, I have made you younger with this photo!
Richard's Aunt Doreen turned 86 this month. That is Doreen on the right with Richard's mother, Joan. As children, Joan and Doreen were evacuated from London to avoid the bombing of World War II. It really makes you think of what it must have been like for them, and for thousands of other children, who had to leave their homes and families and be sent away for their own safety. Heartbreaking thought but the British are tough...that "Keep Calm and Carry On' isn't just a poster, you know.
Remember the baby hats I made? Both babies were born in January! (Want to know their names? They are Averi and Kennedi...neither family knows the other one!) And this week, I have been busy trying to make something else for another baby girl! (Along with checking on my Dad, who is still having health problems. Please, continue to keep him in your thoughts and prayers.)
By the way, anybody remember my post about the "Happy Birthday" song, about it being under copyright and that is why you hardly ever hear it in movies? It looks as if that might expire soon...something to do with a lawsuit, hey, I don;t know, you can look it up! (I read it on the BBC.)
So...if you hear "Happy Birthday" in a film sometime next year, you can say, "Well, Kay told me that!
I will meet my friend, Crystal for lunch tomorrow for her February birthday! Anybody remember me telling you that Crystal met Hugh Jackman? Others might like his great acting but me, I will love him forever because he took the time to talk to my friend, Crystal when he was in Conyers filming a movie. (Makes no difference to me how famous you are, just how nice you are!)
Gee...there is always so much I want to tell you but by the end of my day...you get the idea. Hope you are all doing well and staying warm...except for my friends in the Southern Hemisphere of our Earth, you guys stay cool!
|That is Crystal on the right along with yours truly! (Mary and MA on the left) LOVE MY FRIENDS!|
OH! And I can't believe that I forgot to mention that my cousin, Chris turned 40 this month! Many happy returns, Chris! Remember it is never too late to make music, never give up, never surrender!
