And I thought today was important because it was JRR Tolkien's birthday!
I had forgotten that it was an important day in Jim and Sophie Doodle's life!
It's his hubby's and her Daddy Ron's (and my old friend's) birthday!
Happy Birthday, Ronnie!
(And I know how old you are, because you are a couple of months older than I am!)
So, Jim, here's the proof I have the same photo that you posted in your blog today.
I'm not sure why yours is colored and mine is not.
Maybe they were Ron's photos, and he gave me copies.
You'll never know when the past will come back to haunt you.

This is the infamous photograph that appalled my great grandmother Sara Cossaboom. She thought no proper young ladies behaved like this. I remember having it in color, but this is not. My GGSC may have burned the colored version! In deference to her, I won't crop, enlarge, or focus this one!
John, Judy, David, Me, and Jane
And here's our birthday boy. He has always been stylish and good looking!
Ronnie (as we called him).

Lest you think I'm poking fun at just you, Ron, I shall include this next picture -
the one my husband wanted to burn!
"What is that thing you are wearing?" says my Dear Heart.
"That's the ugliest bathing suit I've ever seen!"
Alas, I was never a Fashionista!
Perhaps I should remove Dear Heart from the three way tie
Martha, Jim, and I have for the best husband in the world?
Ron, Jane, Me, John, and David
It just occurred to me - I have hugged two out of three of the best husbands in the world!
Not bad for a Fashionista-NOT!

Ron was always a Fashionisto, even when climbing a telephone pole!
And cute! He didn't even have to try!
Wolfville Street Three Pools?
Happy Birthday, my friend!
May this next new year of wonderful you be smashing!
And may you and Jim and Sophie have many happy hours of goofing around.
Does he still climb telephone poles, Soph?
Don't worry if you can't find your pictures in the basement, Ronnie.
I have lots!
And I'm happy to email copies to your hubby!
Not tomorrow, though.
I have jury duty!
