A very Happy Birthday to [personal profile] ladyjax today and to [personal profile] benedict tomorrow!!!


This would have been Saki's 19th birthday/coming home day. I was so lucky to have such a clown and sweetheart in my life for 16 years--many were hard years that I am grateful for because she was in them for the brightest moments.

Happy birthday, [livejournal.com profile] ancalime8301!!!!

I don't know if you got out to Annapolis often, but here's a pic I took at the docks when I was down there for the Women's march the other week:

I know you're having to do a lot of traveling this year so I'm wishing you smooth sailing in getting through it all to some relaxing times, dear friend, and that you take some of that time when you need it. Maia and Hana will show you how because cats are experts in that. (-: *hugs*

Happy Birthday to Professor Tolkien! Thank you for the worlds you created that we love to dream and play in. In his honor, I bring you some tree spam.

First, a mallorn:

Greenbelt Lake, late October.
I'm so sorry this is a day late post, hon, but I wanted to wish a very happy birthday to my dearest friend [personal profile] mererid!!! I hope the birthday dinner was excellent and you're having a good Sunday. I still have many pics from my trip out there last February that I haven't posted yet, so here's a couple:

A very happy birthday to my dear exuberant friend [livejournal.com profile] ekaterin24 aka [personal profile] zlabya!!!! I'm so glad we've gotten to be friends the last year--having you nearby makes my life so much better and fuller. I hope you've had a great birthday. Here is a sparkler tree for you as a birthday candle on an earth cake:

DSCN5490
A tulip poplar pretending to be one of Gandalf's fireworks--the one behind the fire station I told you to look up at, but taken a week ago. And here's your birthday moon:

DSCN5902
The supermoon rising over Greenbelt Lake a quarter hour after sunset this evening. Not that I can tell if it's any bigger than a regular full moon. If you look really close, you can see a gray dot along the shoreline a half inch from the left side of the pic--that's a great blue heron who just landed.

I also want to wish a happy belated birthday to [livejournal.com profile] just_ann_now! I hope it was a good one and there's a closer supermoon pic below for you.

Today I went to a brunch and movie in DC with my Jewish Lesbian group--it wound up being just 2 of us. But kibitzing over brunch and seeing a good movie was just what I needed today. We saw Denial with Rachel Weisz. It's about the 1996 trial in the UK between historian Deborah Lipstadt and Holocaust denier David Irving who was claiming libel against her. Wonderfully paced and well done.

I listened to interviews with Bernie Sanders and Michael Moore about the election on the radio on the way home, and they were calming. Then I took a walk and snapped the above supermoon pic and the one below the cut. So a much better day than the rest of the post-election week (excepting a lovely walk with [profile] zblaya on Friday and talking with ya'll.)

Ms. Moo aka Princess Holstein the Winsome (called Mooshka by her minion) would like to wish [personal profile] benedict a very happy birthday, provided it does not require her to get up out of her throne, getting up being quite tedious.



However, if dry kibble is provided at the birthday party, she will so grace it with her presence in a flash--just say the word . . . national boundaries are not a problem; oh no, they are not.

Saki died 11 months ago tonight. Today would have been her 18th birthday, and 18th anniversary of her coming home with me from the PG County Shelter. She would have been old enough to vote in November. You bet she would have voted for Hillary.


Did she not look like a stuffed toy siamese cat in her middle years, especially?

Moo and Tuxie planned to do a little dance for your birthday, [livejournal.com profile] febobe, but as you can see . . .


. . . they are very, very busy cats. It takes a lot of work and dedication to prepare to win the only feline Olympic sport and they are working very hard at their form here. They hope to bring back the gold in the synchronized team division.



Happy Birthday, dear [livejournal.com profile] febobe!!! May you have a gold medal birthday with fun, yummies, and love today with your folks!!! (((((You)))))

A very happy birthday to dear [livejournal.com profile] mews1945!!! I hope today is filled with love and all good things and that you feel a little stronger each day. Here are some pretties and fuzzies from around Greenbelt Lake, and thereabouts for you.


A sweet william in all their variety of colors that was blooming in May by the lake.


A deer in the woods behind my apartment building who was very fascinated by my talking to him in baby talk--so many critters seem to just love that.


A squirrel by the lake feasting at a lakeside house's yard where they put out bird seed.
