Blue Monday - Birthday for Me and My Twin

Hello! Welcome to Blue Monday! For complete instructions, just click here.

Please leave a comment for me; I guarantee that I'll visit and leave one for you. Visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links and leaving comments. If it's too much for one day, come back later in the week.

Make someone's day when you wish them a Happy Blue Monday!

This past Tuesday was my birthday! My twin brother and his wife drove up for a visit. Without planning, we both wore Blue. Binky (my twin's nickname) is sitting in my walker. His real name is Vincent.

When we were babies and people asked our mother if we were identical, she'd answer, "No, Binky has the Blue booties and Sally has pink." (A boy and a girl cannot be identical; we're fraternal twins.) To learn more, click here.

The card that Binky and Rose gave me had a picture of a Boston Terrier on the front. We had two such dogs during our childhood, so they have a special meaning for us. I'm only including this shot where we're giggling to show you a closer look at the card. (Neither one of us look like this on a regular basis!)

We went to a nice restaurant, had a delicious lunch, and then came back home for birthday cake. Sorry, but I had so much fun that I actually forgot to take more pictures.

My son's family all celebrated my birthday on the Sunday before, and my daughter and granddaughter visited me Wednesday, so I've been celebrating number 74 all week long!  (I tell you, it's enough to age a person!)

Do you ever "spread out" your birthday celebration?

Happy Blue Monday!

Good morning Sally, I hope you and your twins' birthdays were spectacular. I'm sorry this wish is belated. We are in Florida and I have not been om my computer much. I was on FB but I didn't see your birthday listed. Sigh! It sounds like you had a great celebration times three. Yes, sometimes my birthday is like yours...spread out. My children are also spread out. Smile.

I love the pics so much. Everyone looks happy and happy is good for the soul.

Love you ,
