A birthday party instead of a church on Sunday

It was my friend, Chris' birthday on Friday.   Look at the company she keeps when she goes out to dinner!  The hearts of girls half her age would be pounding to receive yellow roses from her companion, don't you agree?  Young Nick, the film-maker, is usually found on the other end of a camera (which is a shame for those of us who appreciate a smile)!

Chris has a neighbour with hidden talents.  While Johnny was on holidays he spotted an ornamental windmill in a garden in Brisbane, Australia and brought the idea home with him.  He then set about making a windmill for his wife and one for Chris for her birthday.

I'm more than a little envious!  Only about the windmill, of course! 


  1. Hello Pauline,

    Lucy says hello to her Auntry Chris.

  2. What a lovely windmill. It's just charming.
    Happy Birthday to your friend. Is that really her "boyfriend". Wow! Good for her.

  3. Oh farmlady, I just have to respond to that. Chris works at a surfboard factory and young Nick is making a surfing movie in which her boss (a talented surfer) and the factory feature. He's a delightful young man, but no, definitely not a boyfriend.
    Bev, will pass Lucy's greeting on to Chris tonight.


I love to know who's visiting. Leave me a sign!
