Only your real friends will tell you when your face is dirty
Laugh and the world laughs with you
Cry and you cry with your girl friends
True friendship comes when silence between two people is comfortable
~Dave Tyson Gentry
A good friend is cheaper than therapy.
The friend is the man who knows all about you.

Friendship isn't a big thing - It's a million little things

Today I am officially 39:-) thought I'd share more of my goodies from friends and family.
Memories in Bloom was having door prizes and thank you gifts in the bag so some of this I didn't know I had until I got home which made it an even more of a fun surprise - my daughter went with me so I ended up with two door prizes -- the purple monochromatic was my door prize which tickled me because as most of you know purple is my favorite color:-)
My girlfriends Boo and Dot took me out to dinner at O'Charley's for dinner and then we came back to the house and had a play date:-) we are always buying things for each other through the year so our birthdays we have a tendency to buy or give foolish things to each other -- the rubiks cube was from my friend Dot's workplace (she works at an insurance office) She seen it and thought of us and knew we would want to alter it -- The coffee was something I had been after my friend Boo to let me have for about a year and while packing up her shop she found it again, so it was a birhtday gift along with the Readers Digests and heart shaped book.
This is a gift from my son Joey - he bought this with his own money - he knew I wanted a Japanese Screw Punch -- well I would not spend $40 or $50 on one since I won't use it a lot so when I seen this at Wal-Mart I thought it would be great for my needs - Joey was with me when I found it - so he decided that was he would his gift to me:-)
I wanted an MP3 player so that I could listen to my audio book in the car so this was my gift from my mom -- Yep I made out like bandit:-) lol
