smile at the rain,how cool.love it.
Having recently passed a major milestone myself, I can certainly relate to this, except that I am probably more likely to stay inside these days where it's warm and dry.
You go girl! Fantastic.Love the header, too. : )
I love your spirit.
Why does this not surprise me, Helen? Love it.I especially enjoyed your last couple of comments at my Word Garden. Thank you for them!
love the way you think
Yup, in spite of everything- and because of it.Thanks
YOur words remind me of my MIL - who almost danced in the rain at the start of the rainy season (they lived in Zimbabwe)
Such a fun one... makes me want to do the same.
A wonderful spirit and attitude although I don't believe one moment that you've hit 70! No way!
This is great! I'm a bit younger, but I know this feeling exactly, and you put it so well.Kay, Alberta, CanadaAn Unfittie’s Guide to Adventurous Travel

Dearest Helen,Happy belated 70th birthday girl! So that was on the 18th I guess, otherwise you would have written 'yesterday' instead of 'last Sunday'...Well, you're only a decade ahead of me but you have still a very young spirit and that's the most important of all. Wish you good health and many more years with you loved ones.Love to you,Mariette
A most happy birthday to you Helen! This poem captures your spirit so well-you have more spirit than many folks half your age. You go girl! Show everyone how it's done!
