Pictures and Poetry

Will I be reading my poetry from this platform sometime in the future? Who knows? Maybe? Is it possible that I could have a small gallery space for my photographs? Perhaps?! Let’s see what the future holds.

Right now I’m just happy for the great breakfast food and friendly people!!  The Daily Press is the New Happy Place for Stephen and I. Stephen is always #1 in my Heart and my Priorities!!

Cake | The Daily Post

Can I have my cake and eat it too? In reality perhaps not but the cake and the day can be preserved in photos!

When we were children Stephen and I never had Birthday parties. Not because of religious reasons but more financial. We were working class and our parents did not have the extra money for celebrations. I remember I got my first birthday present a watch when I was about eight. Until then I did not realize one could get gifts for your birthday!!

Then when I was 16 I received a stereo complete with 8-track player!! I know I’m dating myself here!! That was big doings for me! No Sweet 16 but that was the best my Dad could do and I really appreciated this wonderful gift. Gave me many hours of enjoyment. Both of us knew our parents Loved us not because of gifts, presents and material goods but because Mom & Dad spent time with us, played with us and took pride in our small achievements.

Once I became an adult, got a job and made my own money I could celebrate my birthday in a more traditional manner. I’ve been Blessed over the years to receive many cakes but really a Birthday is a time to give Thanks to God for living another year.

Here are some Old BornDay Cake pictures of Birthdays past!
