Happy Birthday to ME!!!! Today is the BIG day(actually Friday; I’m late). It’s been good. Lots of happy wishes for good things, presents, and a give-away.
The give-away is a summer fun package with lots of summer “stuff” in it. Here are some quick pics I hurriedly took of everything.
As I was leaving Walmart, the major source of the purchased items for the summer fun package, I ran into some friends from Ridgway who gave me a great idea. The awesome little item was already in my cart, and when they saw it, they began telling me about a birthday tradition that went on for several years among their friends in Ridgway. But wait. That’s further down the blog.
First, I must tell you how very appreciative I am of my faithful blog buddies. I now have 41 subscribers!!!! Yee-haw!! That is great for my little mixed-up blog, my little blog with it’s personality as dorky as me, flitting from one subject to another from day to day.
You have all made me want to continue to keep it going. Thanks so much for your support and feedback.
And the winner is… oh, wait a second. I forgot to tell you how much fun I have shopping for you guys, how I know you would probably never buy some of these things and how I hope you enjoy them as much as you have helped me to enjoy this blog.
This little guy below was the subject of the discussion in Walmart. They would pass him around on somebody’s birthday. If you were having a birthday that day, you knew that somewhere in your yard would be the gnome, the yard gnome. The person receiving the gnome would put their name and birth date on him somewhere, and wait to sneak him into some other anxious birthday recipient’s yard. So in starting my new blog tradition, I have put my name and birth date on Mr. Gnome. Every year I will give one away . Please don’t let me forget.
And last but not least, no summer would be complete without this:
I give everyone a number in the order they posted and then keep adding numbers for everyone. How many numbers you get depends on the “things to do” that you did. I think everyone did all of the requested “things to do,” so everyone got three numbers assigned. I can’t wait till the next one!!!!
Drum roll, please. The winner is:
Congratulations, Sheryl Woods!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRENDA !!!!!!!!!!!!! Still read your blogs…..still love them. So many times I intend to post a comment……but get sidetracked.I esp. identify with your pool blogs….our pool is STILL not ready! “The painting of the pool” is always a big ordeal around here…..esp. finding the pool paint! Anyway…………what prompted me to write was the pic of the TAFFY…………must be MALONES! Mom LOVED it……even without any teeth! It’s one of those things that always reminds me of her.Have a great b’day!
Yes, it is Malones! Funny how those things bring back memories. I am thinking about leaving a big gaping hole in the yard and doing all the work this fall for next spring. You have so much more work because your pool is so big. Good luck with that.
I’m so excited!!!!!! I’m the one who never wins anything. Yipppeeee!!!! The county is full of liquid sunshine today. Thank you Brenda for just being the loveable you.
I didn’t have time to bring it to you before I left. How about Sunday?
Happy, happy birthday weekend, birthday twin! I love all the summer toys out there, don’t you?
Hope your birthday was wonderful!
