My birthday continues..............

My birthday is still in full swing!!

Check out the cards that I got! This one is from Kirby! I look like such a porkchop stuffing my mouth with pizza! hehehe
This one is from Butchy and Snickers! It's making us sooo anxious to go on our vacation to Nantucket at the end of August!
This one is from Rocky and his mom, Claudette! I'm very proud that I'm a Red Hatter! It doesn't bother me one bit that I'm 10! Mom says I get sweeter and sweeter as I get older! Thanks mom!
And this card is from my WFT buddy, Jackson! I'll share dindin with you anytime! The table looks lovely!

Thank you so much for my birthday cards, guys! I love them all!

Mom didn't disappoint us last night! We had birthday ice cream cones! yummmmmm

Don't sit back and be polite, Mitch! I'm goin' in again!

Told ya! Down the hatch!



Our friend, Blue tagged us for this game. She's a radio fan & BBC Radio 4, has a looooooooooooong standing programme called 'Dessert Island Discs'. To those of you, not familiar with this long running programme, says Blue, the concept's simple. The presenter has a fresh celebrity guest each week, who's given the scenario of being stranded on a desert island & then asked to choose the 8 records they would have to take with them. He/She then has to save just one from being swept away by the waves, select a book to take - the Bible & Complete Works of Shakespeare are a given; & a luxury item, which must be inanimate. We get to hear the music & their reasons for choosing the tracks.

Seeing as we don't really have records that we listen to in particular, we listen to mom's choices and they're just fine with us! Her EIGHT record choices are:-

1. Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake - you're on an island - why not!
2. Bach's Orchestral Suites - we find classical music very soothing. We might need this after a hard day of hut building, don't you think?!

3. Gustave Mahler's Resurrection Symphony - we need to attend mass on Sunday, right?!

4. Saint Saen's Symphony #3 (Organ Symphony) - if we're stuck on this Island for longer than a week, we'll need choices!
5. Dire Straits Alchemy - we've got to have some fun after all that classical music! It stimulates the blood!

6. Phil Collins But Seriously - mom needs an album to hug tight. Phil is her dream man!
7. Soundtrack from Dirty Dancing - after working hard all day we'll need to dance and let our hair down!
8. Garth Brooks Greatest Hits - The Dance -sweet memories to dream about at night!


My Book - The Christmas Box by Richard Paul Evans - it only takes about 2-3 hours to read this entire book! It's a winner and a must-read!
My Luxury - Mom says no way could she forget to pack our beds - one for each of us! Thanks, mom!

NOW, who do we tag?


Gussie and his mom, Putter and her mom, and Lenny and his mom! We realize that you are the birthday boy, Lenny so we'll be most patient! Have fun with it!


So until next time................

Love ya lots,

Maggie & Mitch

Woof, Maggie
Happy Birthday. That ice cream looks really good.
Yes, any dog suffering from Canine Ostrichtitus will live provided they get lots and lots of doggie biscuits but then they run the risk of getting Canine Biscuititus from injesting too many biscuits. But at least they won't stick they're head in the ground.

Ooooh, thank you! This sounds fun! We especially like your #2 and 3. My mom played #3 with a famous conductor guy, Roberto Abbado, so it is special for her. She is trying to convince my dad to program Bach Orch. Ste. #2 for their orchestra - big flute solo! :)
