FUN MONDAY

For photo memes see above !



Dungarees Ablaze said : for your assignment lets hear about your favorite “Birthday”, it needn’t be your actual birthday just a "birthday" celebration. You can use one you planned, one you attended, one you crashed, just a fun time for this FUN MONDAY’S assignment, and of course you can use one of your very on Birthdays.

I don't remember any of my birthdays as a special event not even as a child. We celebrated of course and I got gifts but then I have a complete black out. The only one I remember clearly was my 65th birthday last week here and here and my "round birthdays"
As I have my birthday in July either we were on holidays or everybody was on holidays and I celebrated just with the three of us.

I remember vaguely

On my 30th birthday I was pregnant until under my chin and it was very hot. I remember I got a glass of Champagne and after that the baby played football in my belly.

My 40th birthday we celebrated at the Belgian coast with friends and apparently a lot of Champagne because the little friend of my son counted the bottles and asked me the price then he calculated the amount we had spent ! I will always remember that it had been 12 bottles but don't remember how many people we were. He was then 10 years old and became an auditor in a big swiss bank where he still works today and makes a lot of money ! I wonder if he became that because of my birthday !

The 50th I celebrated in the Sequoia park under the largest Giant Sequoia tree, General Sherman, (volume 1,487 cubic metres (52,510 cubic feet), the world's largest known tree). I ate an hamburger under the tree because I was hungry. I don't remember if it was a big or a small one !

Of my 60th I don't remember anything, I wasn't very well at that time. I think I had a glass or two or three or more of wine at the Waterloo Lion watching tourists. (shortly after I gave up drinking wine)

And now I have to wait for my 70th. Maybe I will spend it at the Northpole in an igloo or in Amazonia amongst an Indian tribe.

It was fun reading about your bdays. I love other people's birthdays but I'd rather be invited out on mine, I can enjoy it better than playing the nice hostess for guests...

Love the cartoon! and about the bday kiss? it's a good question! have a great Monday!

Puss-in-Boots said...

Wow...get those lips! What a sloppy kisser he'd be...

claudie said...

It was a nice theme and you did a great job with your birthdays!
Perhaps in Amazonia they don't give kisses, as in North of Europe! Or peut-être ils se chatouillent avec leurs orteils! Les eskimos frottent bien leurs nez!

One huge slobbery kiss wouldn't you think?

Happy day to you dear Gattina.

Irish Coffeehouse said...

Your 50th sounds like it was an awesome one! :) I'd LOVE to go there!

Mary said...

Gattina,

I enjoyed your Fun Monday post. Wow! That would be some kiss.

Have a great week. It's been a while since I visited. Hope you are well.

Blessings,
Mary

Other than 50th last year, I don't have really memorable birthdays either! The MOST memorable though is my 9th - because my entire family forgot it!!!

Charlotte said...

Dear Gatina,
Your comment on my blog yesterday made me very sad. I wrote about it on my blog today. You might want to check it out.
Birthdays I have a lot of good birthday memories. I can't believe I've celebrated 71 of them now. Doesn't seem that long ago that I was 40 or 50 or 60. The years certainly do fly by.
Have a great week!

I thinking he would just drip slobber onto you. Would that count as a kiss?

Maribeth said...

Loved all the pictures and the posts. Just got home and I'm so tired from all the events.

susan said...

Hmmm...maybe you should skip the slobber kiss and go with your other idea of visiting igloos. Then you can just rub noses. :)

Heather said...

I love how you call them your "round" birthdays. Sounds like champagne played an important part in your celebrations!

Sayre said...

I hope your 70th turns out to be so spectacular that it stays with you for the rest of your life.

That guy? Kisses from a long way away...

You are just too funny! What a fun birthday post!

Peter said...

By your 70th you may have seen the light and be drinking wine again.

eastcoastlife said...

You are having fun on your birthdays! Go for the igloo. hmmmm.... I need to plan for my birthdays too.... I have no memorable birthdays. :(

hulagirlatheart said...

He kisses very carefully......

IamwhoIam said...

well north or south as long as you enjoy it that will be the goal, just no repetes of 60th.

Jo Beaufoix said...

Hee hee, he might not be brilliant at birthday kisses, but I bet he could eat plenty of cake.

ChrisB said...

LOL I think I could forgo a kiss from those lips!

Alison said...

you have had some memorable birthdays..

Pamela said...

I think you should throw a big party and invite all of us for your next birthday.


I fear that a kiss from that fellow might get caught in my throat!
