Caryl here...

Today I share a birthday with a very special friend - Liz - and I'd like to take the opportunity of wishing her a special HAPPY BIRTHDAY!  Liz is laid-up and recovering from a broken bone in her foot and is having to take it easy. So,  I hope this floral 'visual gift' will serve to cheer her up on this, her special day.


I too am battling the sickies, so am taking it easy today.  The dogs are wonderful companions - either sleeping, playing in the corner or keeping an eye on me. What would we do without these sweet and faithful gifts from the universe?

Sending you many and many happy birthday wishes and blessings for many and many more.

So very sorry about your friend and her foot boo-boo. I've had those and they make for a miserable time. When our feet don't feel good we don't feel good.

Happy Birthday to Liz and of course to you, Maxmom. I hope you received much cossetting and some nice treats. Our dogs are indeed a great comfort when we are feeling below par. I wonder, do you think they understand when you are battling illness? I used to think Hamish did sense when I wasn't feeling great, but I am not so sure about Bouncing Bertie!
Cheers! Gail.
