Today is a big day

Today is a special day for me--it is my 70th birthday.
I can't believe it-where have the years gone--all wonderful years let me tell you.
I can remember my 21st birthday and my 70 year old grandmother sitting there looking very old and grumpy and me thinking "when I get to 70 I hope I'm not like that"
I think I have succeeded.
Well I am off to enjoy my day.

Hope it's an especially nice one Doreen, because you deserve it. I also know, despite never having met your grandmother, that you are definitely not old and grumpy!!

Dear Doreen,
Many Happy Returns of the day.
They say 70 is the new 60 you know, I think it could even be less if you stay involved in Life like you have. Wishing you good health for many more years,
Hooroo from Christine.

Many happy returns Doreen - while you are clearly old (yikes, 70??!!), I have never found you to be in the least bit grumpy!

Happy birthday, and many more.

A very Happy Birthday to you Doreen and even on a bad day I don't think you could be old and grumpy even though we've never met. Have a lovely time.

Happy Birthday! I'll have my 64th later this month and the time doesn't just slip away it runs away. When I was 8 or 9 and saw my elderly Grandmother (53) I told my Mother I hoped I'd never get that old. She laughed and laughed.

Gina E. said...

Belated wishes for a very happy birthday, Doreen! Old(er) but definitely not grumpy. Poor Grandma - are you sure she wasn't just having a bad hair day??

Janet said...

I'm a bit late but Happy Birthday!! I don't think you're anything like your memory of your grandmother.

Annet said...

Happy Birthday, Doreen! Or as we say here: Hartelijk gefeliciteerd!

Maggie B said...

Happy Birthday Doreen, enjoy your day, I can tell you are not a grumpy old grandma type of person. 70 is not old to us, only to the younger generation.

Julie said...

I'm a bit late Doreen but I hope you've had a wonderful birthday. :)

Sandy said...

Happy Birthday and have a great day and a great year. You definitely are not old and grumpy.

Hope your birthday was a great celebration Doreen. You are way too busy being generous and arty to be grumpy, I'm sure Ebony's portraits showed your true colours!!
