Birthday wishes

Happy Birthday to my mother-in-law, Dena.

A lady never tells her age, so I won’t divulge it here, but I will share this photo of her as a teenager, which never fails to make me smile.

I don’t know exactly how old she is here (Basil thinks she may be 16 or 17, as old as Catherine is now), or who she is smiling at, but I love all the details — Halter top! Heels.  (Do you see the laundry on the line behind her?).

Join me in sending her some happy birthday wishes.

My mother-in-law, Dena. I don't know what year this was taken, but I always get a kick out of it.
