Someone Has a Birthday Today


(Note:  All pictures may be enlarged by clicking on them once or twice.)

No, it’s not Shirley Temple, although our Birthday Girl could easily pass for Shirley.


Our Birthday Girl never could pass  up a good swing.


Besides looking like the talented Miss Temple, Birthday Girl was also very musically talented.  She played in her school band, . . .


. . . studied piano, and gave several recitals.


She also studied Latin in school, although I’m not sure how completely thrilled she was about that class.


I’m sure you’ve figured out by now that the Birthday Girl is my Beautiful Bride.  The thing I like most about her is her smile, even if the wind is messing up her hair while we’re hiking.

I try to be a gentleman, so I won’t tell you how old she is today.  But I do invite you to pop over to her blog or her Facebook page and wish her a Happy Birthday.
