It is that special someone's 69th birthday today, so I printed her this collage depicting her flashing back to family and memories.
These were photos that I already had digitized and on hand, so I did miss a couple of people: namely her mother and a sister. But everyone else is there.
On the left: a recent photo in which I picture her gazing back over time.

1. Sue, her dad, baby Shauna (along with Mac the dog).
2. Sue and our other daughter, Allyson.
1. With her brother, Larry, who passed away almost a year ago.
2. With her two grandchildren, Danica and Jonathan, four or five years ago.
1. Me pinning a corsage on her although I don't remember the event — perhaps a church banquet.
2. A fairly recent photo with sister, Heather, the author.
There was a time in Europe of the Middle Ages when March 25 was considered to be the beginning of the new year. That changed to out present practice when universal, modern calendars were adopted. If you have read Tolkien, you may remember that he still used March 25 for New Year in The Shire.
Happy 69th to a great lady, and the love of my life. May your new year be grand and glorious.
