birthday cardI would like to send out a big thank you for everyone who sent me warm and happy birthday greetings.

It was an excellent year being 39, and I'm confident my 40th year will be filled with plenty of exciting and happy events.

The groovy picture is from a hand drawn card sent from Anna's mom which depicts Lucy, Huckleberry, and Strider.

I love how the cats are inside living it up while Lucy just has to watch. :-D I hope your 40th year is even better than the last--you got a wonderful menagerie to share it with.
