I can't believe it---another milestone birthday to someone who does not look their age at all!----my beautiful sister-in-law & friend, Gena, is turning 50! You would never guess! We had celebrated early, so we could surprise her! So, here's to you, Gena!!! Hope your birthday is as special as you!!!

Looking at my co-worker, Angelle, you would never guess she recently turned 50, would you? We had a walker waiting for her at the restaurant--- something we figured she might now need in her "old age" (ha! ha!)---as well as lots of other gag gifts.

We all went out to Brown Street Cafe/Kolache Depot for lunch to celebrate!

Above - friend of ours at the next table. (Actually, we ran into several friends there that day! ---It was fun!)

I can't name all of the gag gifts in this post, as I have a family member (you know who you are) who reads my blog, who may be "honored" with more of the same on their 50th, which is coming up soon! (Get ready, G!...and next year 3 more milestone 50th birthdays in Big D's family and my family--- P, A, and D! Am I missing anyone? You know we'll get you!)

We had so much fun humiliating, I mean "teasing" Angelle on her milestone birthday! She was a very good sport! Happy Birthday, Angelle!

Happy Birthday to my beautiful friend, Ranae, who is celebrating a birthday today! Our office took her out to eat at a Mexican restaurant, Don Jose's, where she had to replace her birthday tiara with their sombrero! We celebrated by giving her several funny gifts & a gift card to one of her favorite shops! So full of energy, you would never guess her age--- OK, so maybe the necklace might give you a hint! But, it is very hard to believe!

She is such a sweet person! Best wishes for a Happy Birthday, Ranae!

America the Beautiful! Land of the Free! I'm so thankful to be an American with all the freedoms we have! God bless America, and God bless the men and women serving our country.
Happy Fourth! Patti

I drive past this house a lot and think it is so cute with its green paint and red & white trim! And I like the way it sits at an angle on its corner lot!
But what's really cute is that concrete yard goose with its own little flowerbed built in a circle around it (see last photo above).
Not long ago, it was sporting swim goggles and a colorful plastic floatie around its middle---ready for summer! Now it wears a stylish matching pink scarf and apron!
Have a great July 4th weekend! Patti

Remember when I posted about Bromeliads at Northpark here? Well, the next time I went over to Mom & Dad's, look what kind of plant they had in their guessed it!---a Bromeliad!

Thought I'd share with you Mom & Dad's guest room. I love the colors: black and white with touches of lime green!
Thank goodness tomorrow's Friday! Have a good one! Patti
