I'm behind ...

I was on time - even early
on getting the cards finished.
Just not on time for posting them here.
Shame on me!

Going to start out with two sympathy cards.
Don't like making these
but I know how important it is to receive.
A few weeks ago, my mother's best friend
joined her husband and my parents in heaven.
I'm sure they are having a grand time
playing cards!

Diane retired and got this lovely card.

Art had another birthday.

Mark and Julie celebrated another year together.

What I love about the not-necessarily newlyweds
is that they are still in love
and aren't afraid to show it.
Just look at these two love birds.
Aren't they endearing?

My grandson, Andy, turned 29 the other day.
HOW can that be?
I couldn't resist using this picture.
Wish I could remember how old he was then.

Our good friend, Dave,
recently celebrated.
We always sit with them at the outdoor concerts
so I thought this image was perfect.

Brian the chemist celebrated.
How apropos that I found this image.

Tiffany recently added another year.

I wrote in the card to Beverly
"you'll be my friend 'til the cows come home."

I told you I'm late in my postings.
My good friend, Pat, celebrated in May.
Yes, I am that far behind.

I hope to do better in the future!

Happy Father's Day

My wish is that all fathers,
bonus fathers and
fathers-to-be are honored today.

A few cards
and a framed picture of father and son ...

Happy Father's Day to my dad.
I wish he were here to enjoy this day.

A beautiful birthday celebration

My friend's mother celebrates 93 years today!
May your year be the best ever
filled with happiness and good health.

Happy birthday, Frances, and God bless.

!!! Happy Birthday !!!

If they were alive today,
I'm sure my mother would have made
one of these cakes for him.
It was her specialty.
Yes - chocolate cake with sea foam icing.
I can taste it now.

Not sure how many years ago this was
or how old he was,
but by the looks of all these candles,
he was no Spring chicken.

I think he was directing the choir
as they sang to him.

Happy birthday, Daggett.
I love you and I miss you, Daddy!!!!!!!!!

My cousin's husband's cousin

That was a mouthful!
Yes, a cousin and her husband
celebrated their 30th anniversary
while on a European river cruise.
How's that?
The 30th on the 30th!!!!!

Happy Anniversary, Cindy and Robert

Check it out

I love how the sunlight is casting shadows
on the front of this dresser.
Here's the card Kathleen gets to open
for her birthday.

Enjoy all the celebrations in your honor!

Did he?

I'm curious.
Seems to be a graduation tradition.
Do you suppose he tossed his cap in the air?

Whether he did or didn't,
it doesn't change the fact.
He is still a proud graduate of Mentor High School.

One card from his parents.

And one from his proud grandparents.

Congratulations, Richard!!!

Do you know what yesterday was?

I'll tell you.

Yesterday was Serena's birthday.
And this is what Krista gave to her.

Happy birthday, Serena

I love this image so much
that I printed out two.
Be watching for another card
down the road.

We're hoping this cheers her up - if even only a smidge.

My friend's cousin was recently diagnosed
with cancer.
Kathleen was hoping a little something
in her mailbox would help
put a smile on her face.

And, of course, prayers included!

Not quite 24 hours married

Best wishes,
and all good things to Tracey and Matthew.

Keep on honeymooning!

Missed them ...

Since they left Texas too early,
she missed seeing the bluebonnets.
How about a field of lavender instead?

Happy birthday, Lynne!

I love my friend.

And I miss her.

We used to see each other every day.
We walked the streets at 5:30 in the morning.
(I was so fit then!!!!!)

Today she celebrates a birthday.
I wish we could have started our day
with a walk.

Miss you, Pat!
