A few years back
a darling little girl was born on this date.
I was premature by two weeks
and weighing 9 pounds!
That's my grandma.
She came from Arkansas to see me.
She was the quilter in the family.
Can you tell mom didn't have trouble
making me eat my food!
The story is usually told about me
spitting my beets out though.
Oh thank goodness
I slimmed down for school.
The same week I was born
another baby girl was born in
the state of Washington.
Sorry no pictures here...
Both little girls grew up and moved
to Fremont, California and went to high
school there. I came a little late but by
the time we were seniors we were best of pals.
But the next few years were not so easy.
But we always kept in contact, sometimes
a lot of time passing by. My husband swears
we are twins but we are not.
But nowadays we email daily and if a day
goes by without an email I worry. If the weather is
bad sometimes we email all day.
When I get to go visit I get so very excited, you
think I won the lottery!!
I wanted to go and share our
birthdays together this year but
the dentist will be enjoying my plane
money for awhile!
So this is the best I can do this year.
Happy Birthday dear friend
(a few days early)
