Birthday Quarantine

Today is my 48th birthday, but there won't be much partying going on. Normally there would be a bit of a family get together but a nasty flu bug has been hanging around, knocking us down, one after the other. The healthy members of the family (those that live elsewhere) have been advised to stay away for their own good.

Digging through some old pictures this morning I came up with this:



I would have been one week shy of my second birthday here. I'm the second from the right. The other three are my brothers.

It would be helpful if I could spell. Sigh. Original comment was: Maybe it'll be a fiber birthday afterall (since there'll be no partying). Happy Birthday month!

Happy Birthday old Bean!! And I picked you out from the cute picture! The eyes haven't changed a bit. Sorry to hear you're under the weather & I hope you're feeling better soon!
Try putting a little Bailey's in your tea instead of milk & sugar - it won't kill the bug but you won't really care . . . .

So sorry about the flu - we're down here too. It must be all over. I love the picture of you and your brothers. I have a very similar one of me and my sister and two brothers. Hope your first Christmas with granddaughter was wonderful.
