I wanted to make this post to thank all of you, my friends who sent me such nice birthday greetings!
This picture of Mom and Dad is so cute!
Dad Golden made my birthday very special because, besides one or two summer family picnics that he attends, the only other time of the year that he comes to a family gathering is on Christmas Eve at Betty and John's.
So I felt so privileged!
Dad Golden goes to bed at 7:00 every night.
Now this cake is nameless and candle less but I think that Betty brought it over for me!
There is a sad story behind this cake though.
As I told my friends on the Pilgrim Pal blog, I had to take Dad Golden home a couple of hours after we had been there, as he tires quite easily.
When I returned I heard the sad tale that one of Rachel's dogs had attacked that cake when no one was looking.
He got caught in the act right in time!
Apparently Rachel cut the piece off that he had been licking and decided that she may as well cut and serve the cake.
Well, much to my astonishment, when I returned from dropping Dad Golden off, I saw that everyone was chomping down the birthday girl's cake.
No Happy Birthday Terry song, no candles and NO ice cream!!
This was surely a low blow!!
And there lay that sneaky black dog in the corner licking his chops!
Rachel always spreads a bountiful table although as you must surely notice, there are the scalloped potatoes that I had to make for my "surprise" birthday party
This is Bernie and my bother, Gary.
They have been friends for almost 36 years
This is Jacob, Gary's youngest son and I was glad to see him at my birthday party.
This little guy is Jordan and he is Gracey's grandchild.
He loves his auntie's scalloped potatoes!
Dad and Mom Golden with three of their children..Betty, Terry and Gary.
Mom Golden is wandering around with her camera to see who she can "snap"!
This Saturday Gracey will be mother of the groom, to her son, Eric.
Eric's girl, Marie has learned just how crazy the Golden family is and she doesn't seem to mind at all!
She fits right in!
Amy, Betty's daughter is hugging that black dog who stole the cake!!
Now these next few picture's are "flannelette nightie" pictures.
Mom Golden gave me two big nighties for my 58th birthday and I tried one over my dress but I made her try the other one on and so here we are, two models!!
This is what I mean about that Marie.
She may as well know by now that she has landed into one fun loving and crazy family!!
Good night all and thanks again for all of your greetings.
I am going to thank you each on your blog site.
God bless you!...Love Terry
