Gretchen, Dear Gretchen...

Image from: Poppytalk
...I had posted this greeting, or thought I did, last week. Now, where did it go? Or, better question, where did my MIND go? Gretchen had a birthday!! Let's all sing and whistle and shout! She is an amazing woman, a gentle spirit and funny as heck. Beautiful and wise and a darned good friend. Happy Belated Birthday Gretchen. You are a treasure!
Love and Hugs, Susie Q

I just love you, Sue. And thank you for all that beautiful cake. Thank goodness it's virtual, or you could see me all the way to the midwest. ;) You are a special gift to me. And, I count myself lucky to be "almost" twins with Grace. xxxooogretchen

Hi Sue!
Wow! What a handbag! Wow! What fabulous prizes! Wow! What a birthday girl!
Good to get caught up on your blog. Love your new "niece" ... and pass one bite of that cheese cake my way, won't you?
Your description of dying was so dang hilarious. You have the gift, my friend! The golden pen. So so funny.
Please tell Grace happy birthday with you. I must remember that cheesecake factory idea of writing happy birthday grace in chocolate syrup round the rim of the plate.
Oh. And I LOVE that photo of the ceiling at the Cheesecake factory.
Thanks for stopping in.

Susie how wonderful these cakes and the toile cake in last post!
I got a kick out of reading all about Gracies B.Day and reading that her fav. shop is *Justice. A shop I got introduced to by my wee DIVA grandaughter! Need I say that we did NOT leave the store without getting her a complete outfit..I knew we were in trouble when the salegirls addressed her by her first name upon entering the store!!
I am pleased that you got around to visiting my blog and seeing that we are in Sunny Arizona for a while...it is heaven on earth for me!! Loving the heat..84F!!

My heavens, my conditional memory is not a fluke...are all those great treats for me??? NO? Well the very least you can do is save me some cake! Gretchen can't possibly eat it all!!! Happy B'day Gretchen!
