December 22 2010

Merry Christmas everyone!!!! This is my last post before Christmas. I will post after tho...........

Today is my birthday!!! I usually don't tell everyone when and how about my b-day. The reason is b/c I am so old.

Today I turn 75 years old!!!
I know you all thought I was a lot younger............... Wish you had been right !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We hope you all have a great Christmas with your family and friends. It will be quiet around here. David and Cathy will come but probably not on Christmas. I never know in advance......

Thank you for reading my blog and being a follower!!! See you after.......................

Love coming your way from All the Reed family

PS I wasn't going to tell you, but now I have changer my mind again and I am going to tell you.
I think I am in the beginning stage of Alzheimer's disease. Why you ask?? Well one of the symptoms is if one or more important things about your life changes. Your personality changes!!! One very important thing has changed!!! I use to sew all the time. I use to think about sewing all the time. It was a very big thing in my life. Now I can't sew. I have forgotten how !!!!
I go in the sewing room and draw a blank.
I use to keep my house real nice outside and inside. Now it is a mess and I don't care. I just don't care and that was not the other me. When company was coming I would clean and even paint sometimes. Everything would look good. Now -------- nothing !!!!!!!

Happy Birthday to me !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Maggie and Mitch

  3. HAPPY BIRTHDAY FERN!! It's easy for me to remember because our birthdays are only a week apart. I hope you have a fantastic day and a wonderful Christmas.


  4. HAPPY BIRFDAY MISS FERN. I hope that you have a wonderful day.
    I agree that you are only as old as you want to be.
    Have as super Wonderful Christmas. See you soon.

  5. Happy Birthday Fern!
    We hope your day is as special as you and that you have a very nice Christmas.

    Madi and Mom

  6. Happy Birthday my dear friend...I mailed your card yesterday.

    Listen to me Fern, if you truly believe you are in the early stages, go see a Dr. NOW!
    But, I have to tell you something...I think you are fine...I think you have just channeled all your energy, interest in a different direction, your wonderful blog! I bet you never thought you would be using a computer, much less producing your own web page! Think about all the technology you have learned.

    When you were busy sewing and cleaning house years ago, you didn't have a computer for entertainment. Blogging is very time-consuming.

    Honey, I think you are sharp as a tack!
    Your interests have changed, that all...

    You're a Hip Chick, remember that, OK?

    Sending extra big hugs to you today,

  7. We want to echo what Kit said - she is a very wise lady. Happy, happy birthday to you, dear Fern. Enjoy your very special day and we hope you have a wonderful Christmas.

    Happy Holidays to all.

    Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara and Mom too

  8. Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birrrrrthday dear Fern, happy birthday to you!

    No point in trying to add music since I can't carry a tune in a bucket anyway :)

    Merry Christmas to you, Tom and all the critters!

  9. Dear Fern, A very Happy Birthday to a very special lady and a Merry Christmas from our home to yours. May you have a joyous Christmas.
    Hugs, Noreen & Reggie-dog

  10. My dear friend Fern, Happy Birthday. You are far from being old! As they say we are only as young or old as we want to be! Me - I am 28 and NOT moving! No way -- no how! So pick an age and enjoy! I agree with Mrs. K -- if you think you are having some early signs, go to the Dr. and get it checked out.... I wish you all the happiness on your special day! And have a very Merry Christmas! Enjoy and keep smiling!

  11. Happiest of Birthdays, Miss Fern! I think as long as you're young at heart, then age is just a number to celebrate. Have an extra piece of cake for me!


    Fern, if you think you're in the beginning stages of Alzheimer's, please do see a doctor. My grandmother passed away several years ago and she suffered from Alzheimer's. They were just beginning to offer some really wonderful medicines that can really help a great deal. It can really slow the progression of things and help a lot!

  12. HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Here's hoping the next year brings joy and good health!

    Don't know if you're joking about Alzheimer's or not. If you're not joking, now is the time for an extensive evaluation. Early treatment is crucial and there are many activities and medications that can help.

  13. Hi Fern-
    Happy Birthday! I never would have really do seem so much younger!
    So glad we are blog pals, I look forward to your gardening advice!

  14. Happy Belated Birthday!!!

    You don't look that old at all, in fact, you look very young. I think as long as you keep your heart young, you're young too!!!

    Regarding the Alzheimer's, please get a good check up or a second or third opinion.

  15. Happy Happy Birthday dear Fern,

    We don't care how old you are in numbers as we know you're young at heart! Please take care of yourself and go for your check-up after Christmas...
    Meanwhile, have a wonderful Christmas!

    much love,
    coco and tiffy and mumster lilian

  16. Happy Belated Birthday! Please take care of yourself! I hope you have a beautiful Christmas! And the quilt, it's just wonderful!

  17. Happy Birthday Fern! You really do look so much younger!
    Have a very Merry Christmas!

  18. Happy Belated Birthday :)

    Merry Christmas!!

  19. Happy Birthday & Merry Christmas.
    Mom feels the same about sewing right now. Too much going on. She has this red dress all cut out waiting to be sewed.
    Love Ruby & Penny

  20. Oy my good gravy, Fern! How on earth did I miss your birthday? And such a milestone, too! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR FERN, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU! I am so sorry I missed your special day. I used to paint, Fern. Haven't picked up a brush in a long time and I don't think I would remember how. I'm only 58 and guess what/ I don't care about housework either! Ha! So, you and I must be alike. I so hope you had a good birthday!

    Happy New Year, too!


    Happy Belated Birthday my dear friend and many more!!!
