Hello Cuties! Today is my husbands 75th birthday! We celebrated with all our kids and almost all of the grandkids last night. I cooked for 18 and Ashley brought a huge cake. We ended the night with 2 games of Farkle with 8 players and pictures. The birthday boy didn’t win either game, but we all had a good time and lots of laughs.

As some of you know our new granddaughter from Spain is with us again and just look, in these pictures, what we have to put up with!-lol I had told my husband ‘smile’ in the pictures bc he always takes pictures like you used to see way back in the day when people look so sad or stiff. So leave it to Eva to make him ‘smile’.

Happy late birthday to your husband. Your family looks so jolly. I'm glad you all got to be together--my husband just wants to be alone most of the time with no worries plus he won't play a single game. By the way, love your hair cut.

Thank you for birthday wishes.
We grew up playing games, mostly card games, rummy, poker, boo ray. Then after marriage we would camp and play rummy or Rook in our campers on the creek bank. We played board games too but not anymore .Hubby loves Monopoly but I don’t , the game never ends! -lol Farkle is played with dice and you win by scoring 10,000 exactly. It’s fun and we have set backs along the way but don’t give up! Hubby and I play by ourselves sometimes. The other day he had 5,000 before I even got on board and I beat him in the end!-lol
As far as my hair, I have had the same hair dresser exclusively, for the last four years…ME-lol- I cut my own and hubby’s hair.

A very happy birthday to the birthday boy and hope he enjoys a whole week to celebrate that birthday smile. The two of you look great! And nice to see Eva back again.

Eva has such a great personality. She is very sensitive to others problems or hurts but is also very happy and wants others to be happy too. She had to spend a week in the dorm before classes started so she sent me text showing her room with her quilt on the bed. She says it’s the prettiest one I’ve made. I think she’s prejudiced-lol

Seeing his funny poses, I propose a new nickname - Popeye! Happy Birthday and a more restful day for both of you. Recall that you MAY be of retirement age!

You think?!
I don’t know if this should be called the Fun House or the Crazy House! I’ve been trying to remember what Nora said last night that was so funny. We all were rolling with laughter and although Nora was red faced, she kept laughing too.

Looks like a great time!

And a belated Happy Birthday to Mr Toogie

I just told him and you’re on time here. Today is the day 6th here, I know you’re ahead though. Thanks!

by dlonnahawkins 06 Sep 2023

Beautiful. Wishing the birthday boy a very happy birthday.

We are just relaxing today after having all them in last night-lol- actually I just cut the set in triangles for my daughters second quilt while she’s taking her son to the doctor. Ty, our grandson, is only 20 and has been having high blood pressure for quite a while. The doctor didn’t want to start him on bp medication this young but I don’t know if it does damage if they don’t.🤷‍♀️

Is he feeling a lot of stress? Sometimes things like yoga or meditation can help. Wishing him good health. A Happy Birthday wish for Mr. Toogie! I think his smile in the last picture was worth Eva's effort.

toogie by toogie 07 Sep 2023

Thank you yes, Eva will make him take a good picture!
