Happy Birthday to Me

Today is my 52nd birthday! To celebrate, here’s a flashback to my first birthday in San Francisco circa 1964. The first birthday is never complete without chocolate cake smeared all over baby’s face. Dancing with my dad made it a truly special day. I’m all dressed up, too!

Sick on My Birthday

A Gift to Myself

Today is my birthday. I am 51 years old. Unfortunately, I have a cold. Nothing serious, but being sick annoys me. Not sure if I will be going to group later this afternoon. Do not want to get anyone else sick and want to heal myself. Last night our son said that he, too, felt he was coming down with a cold.

Thumper Dirty Bandages

This afternoon I will be taking Thumper our Labradoodle to the veterinarian to have this bandages changed. He had surgery Friday on a tumor on his paw. We first noticed the growth Thursday night for Thumper was bleeding, so we took him in Friday morning. His veterinarian said that tumor had broken through the skin and thought it might be melanoma. We are awaiting biopsy results. Thumper seems quite happy now that the growth has been removed.
