Thanks for all the birthday wishes, you are all super. I got from all of you cards, candy, toads, balloons, donkeys, turtle wishes and sweet thoughts. I truly was overwhelmed by your kindnesses.
Today Shelley and I found a new indoor flea market, the mother load of thrift stores.....I found happy birthday to me presents....like....old tyme insulators to use for candleholders, old red and white tin plates and saucepots, a killer Virgin of Guadalupe statue, donkey and goat cookie cutters and potentially the bestest of all........a framed photo of a donkeys butt cheeks (I tried scanning it but nahhhhh). It is very artsy with a grey donkeys rear at the end of an adobe wall alley. And without even knowing it, thanks Sweet Man for all my pressies.
Of course we found leopard toed Doc Martens for GK and a super vintage Bob Marley shirt, cuz goodness knows that every 11 year old loves reggae tie dyed t shirts and with Shelley for a momma....the kid adores Docs.
From my lifeblood buddy in Wales I received a kitty in a jumper card.
