 So say I!!
I don't know..what do you post about when it's so quiet.  I can hear the clock ticking (barely) in the other room.  Another birthday and the clock sounds softer each year.  I definitely need hearing aids! 
I wonder if that is why older folks start losing their hearing, so they won't hear the clock tick away the hours?   And maybe that's why they lose their eyesight....so they can't see the wrinkles that the passage of time brings? 
I don't know....just a thought is all...one of those random thoughts that goes through old ladies heads... :) 
The top of my piano is crowded...but.. 
I love it.  I overdo everything!  Always have!  :)
Sorry, but less is NEVER MORE!
Sweet Granddaughter came to visit today and brought  bouquets of Autumn flowers for my birthday... Not just ONE bouquet for Grandma...but TWO...because...
These Fall roses are just so pretty and they smell fantastic.  Is there anything quite like a rose?
 So...two bouquets...because ....more is always wonderful.
Seven children...Twenty grandchildren..because..
LESS ..IS NEVER MORE!  ( So says my crow..."NEVER MORE, NEVER MORE!!"
That's all I have for Tuesday...maybe I'll join Marty on Table Top Tuesday... :)  I haven't done that for awhile. 
Love to all,
P.S.  Would you believe the heat has broken a bit and we may even have rain by the end of the week!!  Yippee!!!
Thank you so much Marty..for another chance to share our Tabletops!  Join Marty and be inspired @ http://astrollthrulife.blogspot.com

    Happy Birthday my friend!

  10. Sweet Mona, Happy Birthday and may you celebrate many, many MORE!

  11. Happy Birthday, Sweetpea!!! MANY happy returns of the day!

    I DO love your thought processes. We tune out the clock, we can hardly see the wrinkles, our clothes were comfy to start with, so we scarcely notice the growing tighter.

    And EYE certainly cannot work the bells and whistles on my phone, so I'm sorta outa touch, anyway.

    The flowers are gorgeous, and fit right in.

    love on your DAAAAY!


    PS I knew when you started, you'd get around to THE RAVEN.

  12. I bet your house is like a fairy castle there - I would love to see it someday.

    I know you all have had heat my sister lives out there. Hope for rain.

    Prayers, sandie

  13. Happy Birthday, Sweet Lady! I think this is my favorite of all your posts! I started losing my hearing when I was 25 and it worsens with each passing year. It's a very silent world for me without my hearing aids! But it does make me appreciate all my other senses! I can't hear the clock tick but I love looking at it! :)


  14. First, Happy Belated Birthday! I think the pic of you in the previous post is so lovely and you are not 76...no way! You have a knack for decorating and as long as you love it, it doesn't matter how much "more" or "less" you do..it's bringing a smile to who ever sees it! Thanks for sharing! The flowers are almost as pretty as you!

  15. Hi darling, you always touch my heart.. thank you for being there for me. hugs ~lynne~

  16. I like your spirit. So very cute. you have your Fall on and it looks great! Wow, twenty Grandchildren....amazing. Love the flowers....what a treat! happy Birthday
