Lot of presents

Myra,the main person who made mums day so special.thankyou love xx

for a first attempt with a strange camera,the photographer did a good job,lol

no,mum WASN'T crying,or even close.just forgot to smile,lol.all bit much at times.

The lady,a friend of Myras makes these for a hobby.very tastes fruit cake,full of cherries and good things.and so moist.

It was my mums 90th birthday today,Myra came over to see her,and to present her with the wonderful cake she had had made for her,along with presents.our neighbour Jan came in,a bottle of Bucks fizz opened,and i cut us all a slice of cake.absolutely delicious.Many grateful thankyous go to my lovely Lady,Myra,you made an old lady very happy today.And her son.

Being a carer full time can be very tiring,specially when i am feeling ill myself,but it is an absolute pleasure to care for mum,and i am glad to be able to do it. take care all.

Mort and Myra, what a lovely thing you did for Mum. Maybe you figured it out but Joe and I went on Facebook together. I was tird of beating a dead horse. Wonder of wonders I have already heard from 2 of my Texas grandkids. Don't know how long we will have. Do you think one of us are stubborn. Take care of you Mort.

Happy Birthday to your Mother. How wonderful to be celebrating 90 years. I agree with Jan you do look happy. Not many of us have been able to celebrate a 90th birthday with our mums.

Just dropped by to say hi, Mort. I guess I missed your Mum's birthday, so tell her happy birthday late from Krissy! Hope you are doing well, Mort. We only usually pass on FB, LOL. I don't do as much on Facebook lately, however. It is beginning to feel overwhelming to me a little bit. I am getting a lot of emails lately from it. I want to read it but have to read it from the page, not from all my emails, LOL. I need to figure out how to turn the emails off that are coming to my email box from FB. But they keep changing the system and sending me emails, LOL. FB I mean. How DO I turn them off? if you know could you send me a message in my blog or something and let me know? i will put my blog address down below or a link to my blog. Hope it works, LOL.

Anyway, I am going blog hopping right now! Thought I'd stop by your blog! :) I wish we all blogged more and did Facebook (FB) a little less. Than who am I to talk, bc I haven't had time to update my blog in soooooooooo long. John and I have been going to Hershey soooooooo much. We went 4 times in the past month... We need to go 4 more times soon. Arggghhhh. I need to update my blog to let people know why.

Okay, love you as a friend, and you tc of yourself. You are doing a great job for jlanders in FB. Just wanted to let you know. If we can't blog much than keeping together in FB IS great! Doing FB and blogging would be even better though! OK, I'll get off my soap box now, LOL. love you! :)
