Thanks for my anniversary wishes. It is Sparklers like you who have helped turn me into a big loser!!

I agree about enjoying the healthy years. I had that discussion at home recently and Hubby agrees with me....for once!

emoticon emoticon I was hoping you would see this and try it Anne! Fun! I think it's "claiming a newly defined territory". Sugar wouldn't go near them, walked wide circles around her. Smiles.

Sorry we can't meet up for our birthdays this year. I had my eye on a new restaurant as well. :-)
I was going to have to explain that we have difficulties around that at this end too. My son-in-law's Grandma passed away on Monday after battling cancer, and between coping with that and the upcoming funeral, plus still battling this bug, and peri-menopause being a royal pain, I am doing a passable impression of a limp rag just now.
We'll have to try for another time. :-)
