HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY HERO

There are lots of birthdays
and lots of days to celebrate
in July for our family.
However----
Today is 
My Hero's Birthday!
Yep!
I let him live another year!

TODAY he hits the 
BIG 70!!!
Dat be soooo old

This was taken a few years ago
before cancer exacted its toll.
Today he is dealing with some health issues
and we are seeking answers for them.
So far, they have ruled out
just about everything.
He has two more specialists to see
and we are hoping they will have some
answers for us.

That is the reason I have been 
scarce in Blogland.
Just know that
I do miss all of you!!!!

ANYWAY-------

Happy Birthday, My Hero-
I love you
like 99% of the time-
the rest of the time?
Well, we just won't talk about that
now, will we?

Wait till he sees the 
SURPRISE I have in
store him!
-yeah-baby-

It's COOL-
That's a hint....
It may or may not be this....

We are in a place this weekend
where we have very
LIMITED PHONE SERVICE
and 
NO INTERNET
so bear with me 
as I try to answer any comments
or make visits.

Have a wonderful weekend 
AND
Stay Safe!

Happy Birthday, Hero of Nana's!!!

You share a special birthday with my grand daughter, who turned 4 today.

We had a very fun noon hour drive-by honking decorated car parade and gift safely dropped off today - there were poppers and balloons and streamers and lots of jumping up and down - and quite a few adult tears....watching that sweet little girl's reaction to her parade was something I shall never forget.

God bless you both. Good healthy and many happy returns.

Donna said...

CHERI said...

Oh Happy Happy Birthday to your hero!!! Isn't it wonderful to be blessed with a wonderful husband and happy marriage? I love my guy 100% of the time and like him (well...maybe a little less than 100...LOL!!!) Sure hope and pray y'all find answers soon. Having health issues is bad enough when you know what's going on. The unknown can be so difficult. Sorry I haven't commented llately...my computer issues (on a basically new computer) have made me mad as #$%$#!!! Now I'm probably going to have to send it off for repair...or hopefully replacement. I think I got a LEMON! God bless...I'll be praying.
