Lucky number 51!

Dog Hat Girls

Thought I should put my party hat on (yep that's me on the right)...as I'm celebrating my 51st birthday today! Yikes...did I say 51? Well, lets not focus on THAT little number but instead on that fabulous party hat I'm wearing. I think it looks a little like Maisie, don'tya think? She was laying her little paw on my future even then!

Nothing like celebrating with a new painting too...so below is my latest abstract work. Must be the March/Pisces vibrations channeling through.

Heading to dinner and a play in Denver tonight so I'll let you know how it goes. Have a great Wednesday everyone!

Oh Linda, happy birthday dear friend. I'm 55 and feel younger than I did when I was 25. I remember when 50 sounded so old but now I realize it's not old at all. Hugs and have a wonderful day.

Thank you for asking about Rosie. She is great and Kevin and I can't imagine our life without her. But so much WORK. Whew!

I hope the play was a winner!

Feliz Cumpleanos, Linda. 51...ah, to be young again. First time to visit, although I've noticed your comments here and there. Your artwork is very nice and your caring for our dog friends is super. I'm going around and inviting a few folks that didn't make it to my five part blog party on March 8. Well, it's open for this weekend, too. So drop by for some smiles and awes. The coffee's on.
