Yesterday was the 51st anniversary of the day I made my grand entrance into this wonderful world, and one of my presents was an overnight stay on the beautiful campus of Berry College, where I spent some time hiking with my daughter – who happens to also be a kindred spirit and a great friend.
I’m pretty sure someone must have alerted the residents that it was my birthday as a lovely bouquet of flowers was waiting on my cottage doorstep. They must have been for me, right?
A number of “deer” friends showed up to help me celebrate.
A barn cat, intent on capturing my daughter’s attention, took the time to wish me a “purrfect” day.
And these fellows said “hay”, and then warned me about too much horsing around.
A humongous turtle gave me a Happy Birthday smile as he slowly swam closer to the shore. Either that, or he was thinking about eating my feet.
And speaking of feet, you know I was decked out in my new “glass slippers.”
I have to say, my favorite birthday greeting came from Mr. Mallard, who not only sang a little song, but gave his best effort at some sort of ballet performance.
I must say, it was definitely not a run of the mill birthday!
