This Year's Birthday Prezzie.


                                      

Lady Magnon: What do you want for your birthday?

Cro: Nothing.

Lady M: You must want something!

Cro: No, really; I'm fine.

Lady M: Some books maybe? Or how about some new brushes?

Cro: No, honestly; I have everything I need.

Lady M: How about I take you to some fancy starred restaurant?

Cro: No, I'd rather stay at home with a nice big juicy steak.

Lady M: Oh, and by the way, I'm flying to Blighty on July 18th, and I won't be back until the 21st.

Cro: Really? But you'll be back in time for my birthday!

Lady M: Yes. And I may bring Harvey J and Ollie back for you; so how about that for your present?

Cro: Aaah, now you're talking; that would be just PERFECT. Thank you!

  3. Many years ago Rabby took me to Bergerac for a birthday lunch. Except he turned right before reaching town where I took delivery of two daughters at the airport. The best birthday surprise ever!

    1. Far better than a fancy meal.

    2. Fancy restaurant meals always disappoint me these days. Although it's more work, I'm far happier with my own cooking--good quality food prepared with love! :)

  7. I am pleased that Lady M didn't keep it as a surprise…..you can now have some time looking forward to it, as well as enjoying the boys when they arrive. (I always feel that " surprise parties" are a mistake…half the joy is looking forward to something)

  8. We gave my sister a surprise birthday party for her seventieth some years ago - all the extended family at a hotel near her home. The photographs of her tell it all - she hated every minute of it and made her daughter swear never to do it again.
    Happy birthday Cro

  11. Lady M did not have to ask you what you would like for your birthday, she just went and planned it. What a wonderful gift for you both to enjoy.
