Shadow Shot Sunday - Happy Birthday, Girls


Shadow Shot Sunday is back, and takes me back a couple of days to December 29. Of course, the birthday of my two favorite ladies, the beautiful Patti and our lovely lass, daughter Allegra. The best of times, a perfect day. Allegra is now 23, Patti born in the 20th century and no need for further details...

As Allegra was in Boston on Thursday, we celebrated both birthdays at home yesterday, tenderloin fillets with a mustard sauce (thanks Cam!). Two beautiful ladies on a special day!

Shadows abound over the girls in these pictures seen prior in SSS (and still special): newborn Allegra arriving to our Derby (CT) home on 1 January 1989. The photos flanking are from a school trip to Paris. Shadows, smiles and wonderment make this shadowy retrospective a great memory...Happy Birthday to the girls...Happy New Year to all!

...sorry, that 'with' should be wish. The keyboard isn't working properly. That's my excuse and I'm sticking by it.

Dear Ralph (I'm late getting to blogs .. I never seem to be able to catch up lately ! )
How wonderful for your favourite ladies to share their birthdays and they both look happy and content : ) That was very much a gentleman's touch just saying Patty's birthday is in the 2oth century .. well done YOU ! LOL
