Thank you for helping me celebrate. I love you dear. And love and hugs to all.

After the day I've had, you are lucky I am even remembering it is your birthday. I'll call you later tonight.

Hope you are having a great day!

That's absolutely hilarious! I realize I knew alot, but not enough. Damn. For instance, do you realize how many August 8th Leos are actors, artists and musicians!!! That's just wacky! I was born to this role! And I share this day with Roger Federer. HA!!! YOU KNOW HOW I LOVE TENNIS. If only I could hit like him. Damn. At 50, you think I could still have his baby? You bet I could!!! *Suze lines remaining eggs all up in a row.*

Suzanne said...


I love you dear and thank you. I'll try to remember.


Suzanne said...


Oh God please. Yup, she called. Yup, bad day. But you know what? She's my darling friend and I'm so greatful. Cece, I love you, we love you. Wouldn't have traded this memory for anything. You know I love you so much and again, thanks for creating The Wild Onion.


Leah said...

I made it here too Suzy! Sarge brought my power cord upstate and here I am, slow connection and all! I hope your day has been wonderful sweetie doll. I finished a hat for you. It's a lovely pale pink, but the thread was a tad too thin and I'm not happy with it as I could be. I'm going to add a silk flower pin that I crocheted, and then I'm going to make another hat out of cotton, and I'm going to send you both of them next week.

Love love love


Suzanne said...


I think I may have to kiss you. Of course in a non lesbian way. Get over here!!! Oh God I love you so. You're kidding me? Seriously. Leah, stop. *Suze looks around.* Of course I love you that much. I do darling. Thank you.

Suzanne said...


I will try. Trust me, it's actually hard.


Suzanne said...


Isn't life funny? You know what darling, we all have one another to lean on and that matters a great deal. Life is crazy, but it's best shared with loving friends and family.

I love you very, very much.


Megan said...

Happy Birthday!!

Suzanne said...


Thanks darling.


Cece said...

I will try to get a post up about my troublesome day Saturday. I'm sure you all will laugh your ass off at my take on it, but trust me, I was shaking and crying and totally not enjoying it at the time. I'll hopefully get it posted by Monday evening. Until then, just wait for it. I love making you all wait. It give me a sense of power. As if being the Boss here at the Wild Onion isn't enough!


Hope everyone has a wonderful Monday!!!!

Mark said...
