39 Years ago today

She wore an itsy bitsy, teeny weeny "Pink" polka dot bikini. The only time I ever allowed anyone to photograph me from behind in a bathing suit. Today is my birthday. I asked my Brother to please send me a baby pic -as he has all the Family albums @ his house right now- and this is what he sends. So here I am in all my glory. Bald, lots of rolls, needing help to stand after one too many bottles. Nothing much has changed, except now I have hair. That is my brilliant & talented Mom's handiwork. At the request of my Dad, who thought a 2 month old should have proper bathing attire???? My Mom whipped up this little beauty. I still have it packed away in storage, with a front shot of her genius sewing magic. Girls gone wild...Eat your heart out! And looky here....What a nice surprise from my SP10 Pal! Lorna's Laces in "Flame". And ladies & gents....another Elvis sighting. How cool are those stitch markers? Just brilliant!
Lastly, because I can never be too caffeinated....Coffee, her Hubby roasted himself! I can report it is Dee-Lish, as I am enjoying a cup right now. Thank you Susan!
I'm off to celebrate my final year in the 30's with lots of Cadillac Margarita' I will probably be able to recreate this shot in a few hours. (look @ that carpet..eeek...and the couch!)
Cheers & Happy Friday the 13th!
