It sounds like you did have a happy birthday. I figure it's over now since it's 6:20P over the pond. You have no idea how I wish your life was going great right now. You only deserve the best!

Belated birthday wishes! I was at a wedding, and didn't even get to "Talk Like A Pirate" Day.... Glad you had a good day with your boys!

Dear Marmie-
Happy Belated birthday. This year has been a crappy one for you. Nothing I can say will make it better, only that This Too Shall Pass. 2010 will be a better year for you, me and JeanieS. Hugs.

Maggie May said...

Belated Happy Birthday! Glad you had such a good day out with the lads.
No matter what happens......... they will always be there for you.
After a run of bad luck you will find things HAVE to get better. You know that you can face anything now. You are strong!
You proved it!

Huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuugs.

Lady in red said...

I have kept meaning to come over and read your blog but just haven't although I know you have been avidly reading mine.

In so many ways our lives are so very different yet the same.

Any time you want to go out somewhere be it the pub at Hayling just write to me and I will go with you.

My mum has just been told last week that she has another operation on her knee to look forward to in the New Year. How you describe walking/not walking being vulnerable is just how she is. Perhaps one day I shall have to get the two of you together for an outing.

Sorrow said...

Happy Birthday Lovely lady O!

Pamela said...

Happy belated birthday.
Hoping the next year brings ALL GOOD NEWS and lots of miraculous healing.

(If I was magic I'd wrap up a couple of new knees for you.)

ChrisB said...

Now I'm really cross with myself for not looking at any blogs this weekend.

Happy Birthday wishes albeit a bit belated. Glad you had a good day. Look forward not back and next year is going to be a good one for you, I feel it in my bones. Mind they aren't always reliable LOL you deserve the best and we'll all be rooting for you (hugs)

Betty said...

Happy Birthday, Mel. And many more.

SylphSong said...

I certainly hope you're still celbrating... you have a year to do so, yannow.

Cindy said...

Happy Happy Happy Birthday! Sorry I missed it! I have it on my calendar for next year though. Glad you had such a nice day with your boys! I hope this coming year is so much better for you than this past one has been- you deserve everything that is good and wonderful in your life.

some guy who blogs said...

Yer gonna hate me for this, Marmie...

A "yodeling" knock-knock joke:

"KNOCK, KNOCK!!!"
"WHO'S THERE?"
"OLD LADY".
"OLD LADY WHO?"

Marmee, you'll always be 29 to me. Or, even sweet-16 if you want. Except, it takes years and years to acquire such a big heart as the one you've got. Take care...

--Dave, that weird guy from Oregoon...

Happy belated birthday, Marmy. I LOVE the birthday balloon! And I'm happy you had such a nice day with your boys. I agree with Fire Byrd - start the new year now and pray it's better than the last!!!

buffalodick said...

Well, it's a little early for this, but once a year I bless someone.. My Birhtday present to you! I only have X amount of magic left in the old wand(think as dirty as you wish!) but the 2010 Great Buffalo Blessing, is going out to you for next year.. Things will get better-guaranteed, as I hold a couple of markers on God, and he does pay his debts... Great Supreme Being, but always tries to draw to an inside straight...

Lulda Casadaga said...

It really has to get better from here on out...just think at least you have those strapping, young lads to spend your days with...you are blessed and damn lucky in that respect!

I'm sending along, with everyone else, Happy Belated B-Day greetings and some good vibes to get you out of
"DE FUNK"!

Sto Lat!! (Polish Bday greeting)
