~~My Happy Birth Day~~

Good evening everyone. I had such a nice birthday...thank you and a big hug to each and everyone for all the sweet wishes and comments. You all are the nicest and I think of you as friends. For my birthday dinner we went to the Freeport Inn...it is one of my favorite places along the river.The food is so delicious, we all had fish dinners and enjoyed our choices. Carl and I had cod, Lisa had salmon with a wonderful dill sauce, so yummy. After dinner we headed home for turtle pie and ice cream cake...so good. There is still a little cake and pie left so hurry over and we'll finish it up.
Look at my new camera. My two favorite people surprised me with this little beauty and I love it. I can hardly wait to use it...I've taken some practice pictures but there are lots of features that are new to me, I think I have some studying to do. One of the instruction books has just 33 pages and the other 134....can you imagine.

Oh, one more fun thing. In my card from Carl there were two red, white and blue lottery tickets. Well, the first one I won $100, I know, I could hardly believe it and the second ticket I won $6, wahooo!! I see some serious shopping in my future. Tomorrow we are taking a day trip, maybe I'll find a treasure or two. You, have a great day tomorrow...talk soon.....

Hugs and warm regards....Linda

Hi Linda..
Oh you look cute in the pictures(:) and what a nice gift.. I too got a new camera for Mother's Day -Lumix Panansonic digital- and am really enjoying it.. .

thanks so much on the sweet words about my garden ,etc. and glad you liked the zinnias(:)thanks for the loan ..

We do get alot of apricots(acouple a boxes) we have two trees and they taste pretty good but not as good as flavorful as dryland apricot ..ours being in the yard and getting too much water makes em milder.

well glad you had such a wonderful Birthday (:)
big hugs, Patty

I am so sorry that I missed your birthday...it looks like you had a wonderful day. So let me see...you could come over for brunch with lots of fresh fruit and cinnamon rolls. We would sit in my garden and watch the beautiful finches eat the seeds out of my sunflowers and we could stroll around the yard to me new garden building and see if it is almost finished. Wouldn't that be a wonderful day? If only!! Dianntha

Hi Linda
I was at the lake when you had your birthday. Happy Birthday!!

Love the new camera. My daughter just told me about her sister in law's new camera that has a 3-D feature. Does yours have that? Sounds interesting.

Have a great weekend!

A belated happy birthday to you! You will love that little camera. I have the 850. Let me know if you find anything interesting in that book - once I got past how to point and shoot, I kinda put the book aside! LOL (I do have to get it out once in awhile but I'm really bad about reading 'just enough')
Looking forward to seeing some great pictures!
Hugs,
Tina

Hi Linda! Belated Happy Birthday! I've been a little behind on my blog reading lately. Sounds like you had a wonderful birthday. Love your new camera. I'm sure you'll enjoy taking lots of pictures. And aren't you the lucky girl with your scratch off tickets! Looking forward to seeing what treasures you find to purchase.

And trust me...if I was closer I'd be having some turtle pie with you!

Hi Linda, Thank you for your sweet comments, I am glad you like Pendle, we did enjoy ourselves! The broom sign was fun! MOT (Ministry of Transport)is a test for vehicles, your vehicle has to pass for you to be able to use it on the road, it checks things like tyres, mirrors, brakes etc to make sure its road worthy! So my broom is fully legal and ready to go....ha,ha
