Jen, it looks like you had fun on your 70th! I am glad for you.

Soon you will be catching up with Merle and me! Don't let anyone kid you, 70 is YOUNG compared to 75 and almost 76!

On my 70th birthday I had planned to run away. I told Mrs. Jim and others and said I would call when I got to where I was going. But I wouldn't tell where that might be.

It turned out I did run away, but with Karen and Mrs. Jim. Karen was running the New York City Marathon and her friend couldn't come. So she invited us. That was fun.
I said I would run away for 75 but I was too pooped to do that. No, actually I did run away to Guatamala, but again with friends. It was the mission trip and I went even though Mrs. Jim couldn't.

On my 80th?

Happy Birthday again, you only have one # 70 Day and a lot don't get that!

G'Day Dear Jan ~~ I loved seeing all those happy family faces at your celebrations. You would miss dear Gwen, as she was always at those events. I am so glad you had a happy time dear friend. The cake looks wonderful and so was the ornament on top of it.
Thanks for your comments on the Dog Angel atory, it was popular.
I think all my aunties , an Mum and me look alike with some other cousins too. My grandmother was fond of saying, "Ten of the and not a dud among 'em" 2 boys and
8 girls. I am staying upright
and it is gradually getting a little warmer. Take great care
and look after yourself. Love, Merle.
