My son had his birthday on Saturday, so I called him to wish him a happy birthday. He told me that I wasn't the first one, which had been Toby who came into the kitchen opened his mouth to say Happy birthday and vomited on his Dad's feet ! I imagined the scene and had to laugh ! Never got such special birthday wishes. Poor Toby was sick, he probably had eaten something which his stomach didn't like !

This was the last year for him starting with a 4.. and for me with a 7 ,,, next year we have to celebrate two important birthdays ! 50 and 80  ! Can't believe it ! The picture was taken at the Garda lake, two years ago.

We will celebrate our birthdays together when they come in September.

For lunch I had an appointment with my Facebook friends and of course we all ate mussels with Belgian fries, (wrongly called French fries) and a beer. The mussels were excellent and you could eat as much as you wanted for only 16 € (16 $). The first time I see that the Euro and Dollar have the same value !! 

Sunday was a lazy day, on purpose, because tomorrow I have to get up at 6 am, because I do an excursion to  Dunkirk in France, and I will be away the whole day.

So today I made collages and was busy with my photos. It was nice and I could sit the whole afternoon  on the terrace. I also went to Adeline to tell her that I am away, so she can see Rosie which she loves dearly. 

 My three men only 3 years ago ! One of the collages I made.


  1. Poor Toby but the way you described it made me laugh. There is a beautiful collage, worth printing and framing.

  2. Photo memories are so wonderful. They bring a lot of tears, but those will turn more to smiles in time. At least they provide so many good memories.

  3. That is a handsome collage and a perfect selection of photos. When I was really little, I had a cat who ate my older sisters bird. Much older sister. She was so mad! The cat had broken into the cage. Sad day.

  4. Happy Birthday to your son! Poor Toby, he must have had some indigestion. Hopefully, father and son recovered well from covid. Nice photos with your three men!
    Have a wonderful excursion to Dunkirk!

  5. Kitties and birds always fascinate me. I think the kitty wants to get the birds.

    Poor Toby. Bless his little heart. I hope he feels better.

    What a lovely lunch you had. Yummy.

    Love the collage. Made me smile.
