Ruby Tuesday Four Days Later For Dad Golden's Birthday

last Friday dad golden celebrated his birthday...he is 84 years old!
sandra[number five child] and gail[number seven child] came down from toronto and outside of toronto to bring him a chocolate candles and all!
...and they brought mom golden a bouquet of purple flowers

gail looks pretty in her nice pink sweater.
dad golden didn't want 84 candles on his cake because he and mom golden live in an apartment building....and dad golden is a fire man from way back.

the candles are lit...but the birthday boy has to wait until....

the photographer takes a picture of father and his beloved daughter

the candles are all blown out but dad golden forgot to make a wish!..alas!

mom golden in her lovely red skirt sits herself down to take a picture of her old sweetheart!

dad golden likes the cake!

and so does bernie.

and so does mom golden!

the cake is gone and so back to the electronics!
gail is showing bernie her i-phone..gail's phone is absolutely stuffed full of family pictures...a treasure chest for sure..worth more than great treasures!

mom golden is sitting in the middle of her two computing daughters...both of the lap tops belong to mom golden! she is a comutin' dude too, eh?

oh oh! comes someone that is going to steal all the attention from the birthday boy and it is none other than eric and marie's baby.

coming to see her great grampa golden...and so here they are folks..the oldest and the youngest of the clan!

gracey[number six child] is the proud gramma of this little treasure and she has three other grand children too!

marie says "see you later aunt sandra".

"group hug" says auntie gail as she throws her arms aroung marie and eric.

"see you next time gail "hortense" when you come again from the big city.
