A Birthday to remember?

Well, I hope it is.

PaperDoll0015

For some reason it makes me hum this classic tune…..

“When I get older losing my hair,
Many years from now,
Will you still be sending me a valentine
Birthday greetings bottle of wine?
If I'd been out till quarter to three
Would you lock the door,
Will you still need me, will you still feed me,
When I'm hhhmmmmm de dum….la la la!”

Thanks Paul Mc Cartney for this special birthday greeting!

And thanks to all of my blog buddies and best girlfriends for singing along with me on my ‘special’ day!

Sweet hugs from the birthday girl!

(hopefully I’m a beach bum today. I’ll let you know tomorrow!)

Happy Birthday Diane! I love these great photos of you and I was actually thinking of that song the other day. I'll be singing it in July. LOL To think I was just a 'youngster' when that song came out and the age in it seemed a lifetime away. Blessings for the year ahead. I hope you had a great day on the beach. Hugs, Pamela

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

I bet I know how old you are! What fun...lovely memories.

That song makes me smile because when it came out my dad and mom were nearly that age and he went out and bought the album because of that song...he was way past the age to like that music of course and also was more a classical music guy. I remember then thinking, huh that seems sooo old.
