Happy Birthday Terry!

We had so much fun helping my SISTER-in-law celebrate a birthday yesterday! When we get together the years roll back, we are on the same page, the same wave length, we speak the the same lingo. There are 5 years difference in our ages, but it really doesn't matter... I remember what she remembers! She gave me a huge stack of old 45's that were hers and my brother's, even some from before they were married. Sugar Shack is one of them, worn down until the grooves are almost gone. Records that they played as teenagers, bedroom door shut and alone with their hopes and dreams. Before we were Moms and Dads, before we were Nana,s and Papa's.

When you are a teenager your life lays out before you, a long road. You don't see the curves or the hills that you will have to go over. You just see the horizon and you head for it as fast as you can! Along the way we learned some pretty important stuff. We learned that family was at the top of the list, and not to take good health for granted. That having good friends would make life easier,
that good things are meant to be shared, with three spoons...

...or three straws!

Happy Birthday Terry!
Love ya Sweetie!


  1. I apologize for not visiting my favorite blogs lately, and i promise to do some catching-up with everyone in the next few days. We are experiencing cooler weather starting today (Thursday) and as for myself I'm looking forward to falls return to the Lancaster Pennsylvania area. And are the color of the leaves changing your your way folks as they are mine. Hope everyone has a great weekend and enjoy the beautiful fall season that has now begun. Richard from Amish Stories.

  2. Happy Birthday, Terry!

    PS: Please don't let my hubby see that 45. He has about 100,000 records, taking up space in this house already.

  3. Happy birthday to your SIL! sandie

  4. Amen and "Happy Birthday" to Terry!
