A Birthday Surprise Revisited PennyD!
This is a "Twice Told Tuesday" told thrice, this year on Sunday. A story told to you in 2009 by a very special guest and reprinted because it and the subjects are two of my favorites. This post is a forever favorite. On our birthdays our thoughts turn to our Mothers. Without them we wouldn't be here. We wouldn't be the people we have become. A remembrance, a birthday celebration and another year PennyD!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!
Miss Penelope and your Shades and Curator fans want to share this special day with you. A Curator, as you have learned, is a person responsible for managing, organizing and preserving historical and treasured items. You have always been good at keeping things. You certainly have the experience for this since you've hung on to friends, animals, letters, pictures, clothes, and even an old pork chop bone which we found under your bed. I wonder what the history of that bone would have been? I hate to imagine.
As far as Miss Penelope is concerned, I am sure she was first born during the many childhood books you read and the stories which you heard from your Grandma Arline. In fact, sometimes I believe you are talking about your Grandma and all the adventures she had and the men who had been in her life.
I will never be sorry now that I dumped 5 large boxes of Mama's pictures and letters on you when I moved to Arizona.
I think Mama knew that her life in the early 1900's would be of interest to others in this day and age. Mama would be thrilled that you have shared her life with others in such a unique way.
Have a Great Birthday and never stop your writing as you continue to enrich and entertain others.
Mom is the beautiful Suzanne. Denise Levenick (Penelope Dreadful and The Family Curator) is her daughter.
Your happy birthday now is here.
I hope you're well and hearty! If I lived near you, my dear,
I'd surprise you with a party.
Happy Birthday BFF from all your fans!
We lift our glasses!
