A Very Berry Birthday

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!

    1. …so…I looked up squids…which happen to have backbone structures called “pens” and many secrete “ink”…so…shall we say that the Squid wished me well with pen and ink? 🙂
