I'm 70, lets Rock and Roll
3

My best gift, years in the making

buy t shirts from local bands to support them, I don't wear them. Donna buys t shirts at concerts, I don't wear them.

I had this idea for years, finally Effie, Donna's twin sister made it. BB King, and George made it in, otherwise all local bands.

This includes Effie, my blurriest photo ever

It had it's first nap today!

Elliot,

Wonderful present, and a very happy birthday.  Nice to know I'm not the only 70 year old  (this May) still breathing.

I wish us both many, many more happy birthdays.

Regards,

Den

Elliott,

Congratulations on the big 70..!  That's a lovely blanket

Some years ago, we started celebrating Birthdays and Anniversaries for a whole week, a single day is just too short..  So enjoy your special week long celebration.

I turn 70 next week, so I'm right there with you.  All the Best...

Enjoy.. The cam will treat you right! I suggest you get some type of filer adapter for it if for no other reason they let you cap it and protect the delicate lens leafs/cover

Re: I'm 70, lets Rock and Roll

The party was fun, in a restaurant in Asbury Park, adjacent to Ocean Grove where we stay, you cross a small lake via footbridge.

Bill and I share Aug 12th, we party together yearly, usually Cape May, but the lovely and talented Daria (center) is off to college, so they could not stay for a week like usual, so, Ocean Grove, easier for everyone to get to.

Bill, Mimi, Daria, Me and Donna

Some of you may remember the horrible backlit beach photo I took of Bill, Mimi, and Daria on Sunset Beach, Cape May that you fixed for me for their Christmas Card in 2012.

Our newest Grandchild, Adalynn, ava's sister, playing with Ben

Ava and Cooper

All 4 together, I grabbed the camera, as usual without checking settings. I always ask them to make the ugliest face they can first.

Then, gimme something nice (Cooper was still in ugly mode). That's Ava's mother Jessica's shadow.

Finally Cooper attempts a happy face

Walking back across the lake

Many Mother/Daughter, 2 family homes, handheld
