My Birthday

This is my social security year. There are a few benefits for the aged. LOL
I had such a nice birthday with so many good wishes and calls from Bill and Jeni, cards and emails and birthday wishes on facebook.

Then when I got to knitting class that night, the woman had a surprise birthday party for me. Eunice made some to-die-for dip and we had a scrumptious cakes, hilarious cards, and gifts from everyone. What a great group of women and what fun they brought to my birthday.
Bill met me in St. Simons Island for the weekend. He brought the puppy, Harley, and we had a spectacular time on this island. We had never been before but what a treat it was to discover. We will go back. There are memories of the gazebo, the light house, the ocean and the beach. We stayed at Sea Palms Inn and it was nice, especially for a hotel that accepts dogs. What a clean, lovely town this was, very beachy and so many unique shops and things to do that we never got around to.It was just a perfect place for us and we have some wonderful memories there already. There was even a wedding going on at the lighthoue and that was really neat to see.
Bill went to check out Jekyl Island after we left and he said it wasn't as nice as St. Simons. He also got me some perfume. Jeni and Tom were going to give me my gift when I got home but decided to send my gift to me here so I am looking forward to seeing what that is now.
I didn't take many photos at St. Simons. None really accept the photo of me with both dogs. I hope they will get along and so far it's been OK this time.
Thanks to all who had a hand in making my birthday so special. I am so blessed and I know that. Thank you.

Belated Happy Birthday, Judy. Indeed social security is one benefit of the aging! LOL.

Your weekend in St. Simons Island sounds wonderful. It is neat that you had never been there before and now know you will go back. So many beautiful places to see one can never see them all.

I hope you will share somewhere the photo of you and the two dogs. Glad they are getting along okay this time.

What a fun birthday you had--and you look great in the knitting photos. Looks like a very fun group. I think I already told you my uncle and aunt lived on St. Simons Island and I visited there with my mom some years ago. We checked out Jekyl Island too I recall. And the dogs...what can I say, they are just so cute! I hope Lexi is adjusting to Harley. Keep up the fun!
