You had a wonderful birthday celebration. How nice your daughter has a place with plenty of room for you all to get together! That is the best part of any celebration having our family and friends around us. I'm so glad you took time to share all the pictures. I was hoping that your back behaved and you'd be able to enjoy your birthday. 'On Ya'-ma

Phew, Jan, what a lovely gathering! And I'm so glad the dog wasn't left out. Hope Kizzie's nose isn't out of joint.
I do love little terriers.

Sorry, sorry, sorry, dear Jan! I missed your birthday. I so sorry. I haven't been very well last week and I had a rotten weekend so I tried to stay away from the computer and I missed this. Well, I wish you happy birthday for next year, what do you think? I'm so glad that you had a lovely time and so many cards! Your family is fantastic and you were so overwhelming cheerful! And what a lovely laptot! I've just ordered one from Dell for works as well. I bet it's the same as yours...I wish you all the best. Hope you will forgive me for my lack of attention towards you. Ciao. Antonella
