What Do Mom, Disneyland and the Mickey Mouse Club Have In Common?

WE CAN'T COUNT THAT HIGH!!!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!!!!
Today's post is mostly in black and white because when Mom was born there was no such thing as color!!!!!  Mom marches to her own drummer and is pretty darned colorful! Mom's birthday celebration started this past weekend. What grown woman asks for Jimmy Fallon items on her birthday? MOM that's who! No expensive jewelry for her...Mom is suffering from the "Peter Pan Syndrome!"  Dad knows Mom awfully well,  he arranged for the Detroit Lions mascot, "Roary" to stop by Mom's seat this past Sunday....Mom was all about singing the Lions fight song with Roary.......hmmm...maybe she and Roary were responsible for the Lions FIRST win of the season? Only the two of them know for sure.

Mom, Disneyland and the Mickey Mouse Club all debuted the same year.........Disneyland is still going strong.......the Mickey Mouse Club? Not so much......all we can say is, 

YOU  BETTER WATCH OUT MOM!!! 
YOU COULD BE EXTINCT TOO!!!

    1. Thank you so much!
      It was hilarious! I was sitting there playing with my phone when he approached and I didn't see him. Then I saw these big white legs out of the corner of my eye and I looked up...and up...and up...........then Lenny said I said "Oh Dear God NO" lmao! But then I got into it right away.
      Lenny has had all sorts of surprises all weekend, he said there are more coming today, I have no clue what they could be! Thanks sooooooo much for your special wishes! Love back at you!!!!

  11. Happy Birthday Caren!!
    Wow, we think you and Roary did make the Lions play well...now if you and he and Lenny make lots of these encounters, maybe they will continue to be big winners. We could use it:))

    If you think you are getting ancient, our meowmy is older than yours, MOL!! (And soon to be adding the next number...)

    Meowmy didn't have a TV in her den until she was in highschool...so all those fun things she was deprived of, MOL!

    Have a great week, catabrating your birthday!
    Eat lots of cake!!

  12. Happy Birthday, Caren! The Lions really tried their best to lose that game, but somehow they pulled it out...perhaps the MSU win goaded them on! Looks like it's going to be a beautiful day today in Michigan...hope you get out there to enjoy it on your special day!

  30. Happy Birthday to your mom (Caren). Sounds like you had a fun time at the football game with the mascot surprise sing-a-long. If my mom's baby photos are black and white, does that mean she's old?
