Today I'm joining Friday Fences
These are from the midway at the Fort Worth stock show....

I like watching the action on the midway...
the rides...the people...the food...
I just don't like participating in the midway...
so being on the other side of the fence suites me fine..

this is typical scene when hubby and I go somewhere...
I'm usually lagging behind...
snapping photos...and he is walking ahead...
eventually he realizes I'm not there...
so he stops and waits till I catch up...
he is a good sport...
after all...he's the one that gave me my camera...
almost a year ago...time sure flies...


we will celebrate our 29th anniversary this month...
my daughter will be 23 this month...
next month I turn the big 5....0.... 
milestones...
my daughter is having a Mardi Gras themed party...
she says I should have a party for my birthday...
I don't think I've had a real birthday party for me...
since I was four years old...
I've planned and given parties for years...
I'm usually the back grounds person...
the one taking photos..
the one setting things up...
the one making sure the foods out...
the tables are set...
the clean up crew...
I don't know if I would know how...
to be the Birthday girl....
maybe I should add that to my 2012 list...
If you haven't entered my giveaway yet...

Happy Anniversary! And happy birthday! I just turned the big 6-0....not something I enjoyed doing, but hey, we all have to get there sooner or later! And I spent it with my family, and that's all that matters. Great fence! And great views too.

Oh, I set up a link for your giveaway and just found out it isn't working, so I will try again. Take care!

i love the picture of hubby walking off and leaving you. i have a ton of photos of my hubbies back side leaving me. maybe i should find them and do a post. he does the same thing, he will turn around and i am a block behind. i love watching at the carnival and not taking part. the people are the most fun of all.

even if you had a party for yourself, i can picture you still doing all the set-up work! :)

i'm with you on the midway - watching from afar is just fine...

Next year, our middle son will be 50 too. Our daughter is already 52, of course. ,-)

But of course, you MUST be the Birthday Girl when you turn 50! Tell the family that you want a party, to make up for all those you have missed since your last Birthday Party, at 4 years of age!!!!!!!!!! :-)

Nice fence pictures sweet Deb. Sounds like this would be a real good year for you to have that BD party. Hugs

Happy Anniversary AND Happy Birthday!!! I have had two birthday parties in my life and both of the were given to me by my daughter, Amber. She gave me a family party once when I was in my 40's with some help from Summer. When I turned 50 she threw me a SURPRISE party! She was 12 years old and invited my friends, did the menu and the whole nine yards.

You and I are alike in many ways. We GIVE the parties.....hope your daughter gives you a BIG one!!!
