Happy birthday, my dear. Very dashing gent in that painting. And you look lovely. Just make sure you leave with the one that brung ya'.
May I wish you a very happy Birthday, Yvette. I trust you will spend time doing things that give you pleasure and that you are surrounded by friends and family!:-)
Happy Birthday Dearest Darling (said in the vein of Temeraire to Laurence). All the best to you on this very glorious day of sunshine and happy breezes. Belle
I wish you a very happy birthday, and I hope you can extend it into a season of celebration. Wishing you health and happiness, Mark
Jacqueline, did you see the enlarged version? Is this not a fabulous painting? I mean - WOW! Yes, I must take care to leave with the guy with the cigar. He looks prosperous. Ha!Don't you just LOVE my dress?
Thank you, Sue, m'dear. I'm going out to dinner tonight (just like in the painting - ha!) with family. I'm looking forward to it. This is a BIG birthday. Beginning of a new decade.
Oh, thank you, Belle, dear. So far I'm having a great day and it promises to get even better later on when I go out to dinner. I looked in the closet but that dress appears to have disappeared...oh well, I'll just have to wear something less flamboyant tonight. :)
Thank you, Mark. I hope so as well. :) Can't believe I made it this far. Having done so, the rest should be duck soup.
Happy Birthday, Yvette! God bless you with health and happiness always. I hope you have a great year ahead!!

A very, very Happy Birthday to you! And a wonderful year until next one!
Thanks so much everyone!! I had a wonderful birthday - an amazing dinner out with family (including my little granddaughter) and very nice prezzies: some turquoise bling and a shopping bag full of deliciousness - all the necessaries for afternoon tea!And yes I had cake. You're never too old for cake! It was a BIG birthday - I'm beginning a new decade and feeling pretty good. I'm glad I'm still around. You guys are terrific! Thanks again for all the good wishes, they are very much appreciated. :)
I know I said Happy Birthday on FB yesterday but I wanted to come by and say the same thing here. I hope you had a wonderful birthday!
Thanks, Ryan! I must admit, my flashy silver sequinned grown did fit a little tighter by the end of the evening. And the red rose was drooping a bit. But, I soldiered on. HA!
Glamour hardly covers it. You could give Lily Rowan a run for her money!Happy Happy Birthday.
Don't I wish! Ha! Thanks, C.W.
So glad you have a wonderful birthday and that your grand-daughter brought joy.More turquoise bling is a great present, and delicious things for tea. Great gifts -- and birthday cake, too.It sounds as if a terrific time was had by all, especially the birthday honoree.
We did, Kathy. We did. It was a very fun day. :)
Beautiful, beautiful painting, and what a smashing dress, dahling. I hope your birthday was absolutely fantastic. :)
It was. :) The gown? Oh, just a little something I threw on at the last minute. Ha.
I hope you had a wonderful birthday, Yvette! Did you wear your sliver ball gown like the elegant woman in thsi painting? I celebrated mine yesterday...doing much of the same as every day, but that's ok--the "ordinary days" are the best and not to be taken for granted. :)
A belated Happy Birthday to you (because I have been knee deep in grading papers these few weeks). Hope you had a great time on your birthday. Great picture!
Pat: But of course I wore my silver full length gown. Ha! Isn't that an amazing painting? We should all be that woman at least once in our lives. :)At any rate, thanks. I had a great day. I hope you did too. Geminis of the world UNITE!!
Thanks, Willow. I had a great day indeed.
