Not quite the big 5-0

Dianne as a baby, originally uploaded by DianthusMoon.

Another year already! I thought you’d enjoy seeing a child of the 60s. I was almost born in 1960. I didn’t know my maternal grandfather as he passed away when I was only 6-7 weeks old, which is my age in the very yellowed photo. That’s my Uncle Don holding me who I talk about now. He’s 85 and living alone (though his wife is in a nursing home). The large photo is me when I’m 1 day old. I do have my mouth open in the photo, not surprising as mom loves to tell everyone I was the loudest baby in the nursery. : )

The next few shots-I’m about 3 when we were living in Florida, my 7th birthday and brother #2’s 6th birthday (or was in 7th and 8th?-lol) and my 21st birthday with my mom. Those Polaroids tend to crack. The big onion was a cookie jar-dirt cheap at the pottery factory in Williamsburg, VA.

Little me about age 3

I can still name most of the kids: Stevie, Donnie, Dianne, Gary, Donnie B.,Valerie, Betsy (the little girl behind me, my BFF as the time), Laurie, Julie, Julie, Caroline (my cousin). The ones I don’t remember were the siblings of our friends.
Our combined birthday party about 1965

Only remembrance of 21st birthday
We’re going out to dinner today. I have some gifts to open from mom and Brian. Mom always gives me too many things which frustrates my husband.

Many thanks to Barbara, Angela, Terri and Kay for your cards and/or gifts. I did thank you in an email too.

Update-About 7:38 the front door slammed shut and woke me up! I had mentioned wanting a bagel with cream cheese for breakfast. Bri went to Dunkin Donuts (also getting ripped off on how much they were) and bought 4 bagels and 6 donuts. I did tell him he woke me up and that all nice measures should be followed all the way through. I do appreciate him going out in the bitter cold to make me happy.

Zoey-not sure if I’ll bring the camera in the restaurant as it may be a bit snooty. I do have a camera phone-well mine needs a new battery, but Bri has his too. We’ll see. : )

Heard my sister-in-law got Pink eye from my niece who was getting over it yesterday. Col fixed both my mom’s hair and my hair then. I have antibiotic drops I’ll use a few times today just as a precautionary measure.
