Happy American Independence Day - My Birthday

I wish all my followers and visitors to my blog a very happy American Independence Day.

Actually its my Birthday today and I am a very independent lady and always have been,  I don't follow like a sheep as I keep telling my husband I do my own thing,  well I try to.

This is a scheduled post and the weather forecasted for today is rain,  now there's a surprise,  I have not had many wet birthdays over the years,  but next year is a big one for me,  if the government had not increased the retirement age I would have been joining Vernon in his retirement,  as it stands now with the latest increase I have another nine months added to my actual retirement date,  its now 2017.  I am not amused.

I wanted to show you this wonderful shuttle that La Cossette made me,  its actually mothers birthday present to me.  Joelle has done a wonderful job with Haie which was my dog on one side,  and her two daughters Gertie and Gussie on the other side. There bred was  Belgium Griffon dogs. It was packed in a beautiful envelope with a green bow and tatted pea pod.   It is really a beautiful shuttle and something that has already been admired and will be treasured for many many years to come.  Thank you Joelle you have been a beautiful job.  Here is the link to her shop on Esty 

I hope you all have a great day and as they say over the pond "Have a nice day"
