A Special Birthday Wish To A Dear Bloggy Friend.

Yes, it's time for another birthday wish, and another birthday cake to be baked!  This time it is our dear friend Odie over at The Simple Life, who celebrates his 65th birthday today.  Congratulations my friend.

Oh, I wonder who that could possibly be on Odie's computer screen?! Hee Hee!

If you haven't yet visited Odie's blog, I would urge you to do so.  This man really has proved himself to be one of the best, as he is always so encouraging and supportive of all the blogging friends that he follows.  Certainly, I am proud to call him my friend. 

Odie retired a couple of weeks ago, so he now has more time to spend doing the simple things that he loves doing.  He is married to Linda, and has this amazing little dog called Rocky.  I always tell him that it's Rocky's ears that get me every time!!

See what I mean?!

"A 65th birthday is a time to celebrate the achievements, dreams and individuality of a person"

 This cake really did test my cake decorating skills I can tell you!


I've just realized that there is a birthday girl among us as well today, and she is Carol over at Dizzy C's Little Book Blog, so happy birthday to you too Carol, and I really hope that you get some pampering today and that the family spoil you!

I'll be back with some more Sunday Snaps for you tomorrow.

Happy birthday to our friend Odie! I love that your picture is in his picture, Diane. You baked a lovely cake for him! And, I, too, love Rocky's ears. He doesn't miss much, I'm sure.

Does someone else have a birthday coming up soon...?

Odie is a real treasure. He devotes every day of his life to spreading love, joy, comfort, support and prayers. He is everything a great blogger should be and we are all very fortunate to have him in our circle of friends.

Happy 65th birthday, Odie!
