BULLIES come in all ages

BULLIES come in all ages
(click to see movie trailer)

Surround yourself with positive people,
energy, and situations;
always avoid negativity.

Life is too short to wake up with regrets.
So, love the people who treat you right.

Forgive, and then forget about the ones who don't.

Happy Birthday, ~C

Birthday Greetings to my dear friend, ~C, in Houston.

~C and Me, 1963


I have known ~C since I was 9 years old, when our fathers were stationed at the Marine Corps Logistics Base, in Albany, GA.





Candee and Me, 1963

~C's younger sister and I were best friends, and I thought ~C was the coolest big brother in the world.

~C took me to my first rock concert in 1973.
We saw Grand Funk Railroad at Asbury Park, NJ.

~C, The Rocker

Our parents were dear friends and our families visited each other over the years. When ~C's father retired, his family moved to Georgia so our families could continue their special friendship.



Although our parents are gone, ~C and I have continued that friendship. He visited us from Houston a couple of years ago.

I guess you could say ~C is like family to me...

Enjoy your special day, My Friend!


Krissy Kitty was a stray until she found her fur-ever home w/ ~C.


Happy Trails,

Oh Ms K you are a night owl like me! I am up all hours of the night and the day. Not a good sleeper.
When you hurt it is hard to get comfortable.

Happy Birthday wishes for your dear friend. He is so lucky to have you as a friend.

That's really special.
Thanks for sharing.
Happy Birthday C!

Melissa said...

Kit,

You are so kind-hearted. In all honesty, I would love to be paid to write. I feel my best when I can just sit and write. I truly love it.

I buy the lime popsicles from Whole Fruit. That's the name of the brand. They are only 70 calories per popsicle. Not bad!

Thank you for your inspiring words to me.

Love Melissa
