Hello to all my dear friends here in blogland. Yes, my birthday is coming up and I am so excited because of the numbers. My lucky number has always been 13 and this year I get a double whammy. Ok, met my dear hubby Rick on the 13 and we took out our marriage license also on a 13 but not only that, both were on a Friday the 13th. Don't know if you saw Sheri's portrait on her blog Red Rose Alley (don't know how to make a link) well it's just so beautiful and so it reminded me that when Rick was in the service in Japan, of course he was my boyfriend then, I had send him a small photo of myself and he had it hand painted on silk. Yes saved it all these years and the colors have not changed, told Sheri that I would make a post with it, so here it is. First is the painting on silk then the photo of myself that they took it from. I was all of 16 years old. I think they did an amazing job, just a tad difference but all in all it's good. So since it's my birthday thought would share this with all of you. Thank you everyone for being such great friends to me, Kerri, Celestina, Sheri, Sandy, Dolores, Shirley, Marylou and so many others here in the states and all my friends in Greece, Italy, Brazil and more. Love all of you.
