Mom is the same age as Disneyland and the Mickey Mouse Club



Today’s post is mostly in black and white because when Mom was born there was no such thing as color!!!!!  Mom marches to her own drummer and is pretty darned colorful! Mom’s birthday celebration started this past weekend. What grown woman asks for Jimmy Fallon items on her birthday? MOM that’s who! No expensive jewelry for her…Mom is suffering from the “Peter Pan Syndrome!”  Dad knows Mom awfully well,  he arranged for the Detroit Lions mascot, “Roary” to stop by Mom’s seat this past Sunday….Mom was all about singing the Lions fight song with Roary…….hmmm…maybe she and Roary were responsible for the Lions FIRST win of the season? Only the two of them know for sure.

Mom, Disneyland and the Mickey Mouse Club all debuted the same year………Disneyland is still going strong…….the Mickey Mouse Club? Not so much……all we can say is,

  6. DAKOTA!!! WOOF!!! WOOF!!! You never say or call your Mom “old”- even if she was around before God created dirt. Or, before He molded the rocks of the world or before the first tree was planted. It’s just not nice. You can do that to Dad’s but not Mom’s. Does she remember when dogs were created- a most important event, I’d say, oh, er, uh, hmmmmmmmmm. Happy Birthday Dakota and Cody’s Mom. arf!

  13. Happy birthday!!!!

  14. WOOFS!!
    Happy Birthday Caren!

    Growlmy is ancient too, more even than yours, BOL!

    But she feels like a kid, esp when she works with all the seniors who are decades older than her!
    She was deprived of fun things like Mickey Mouse Club cause there wasn’t a TV in her e[den until she was in highschool…
    Can you imagine today’s kids enjoying that now?? OMD!!

    Glad the Lions won, too…now to keep the inspiration going for more wins!

    Have a great week of all those birthday surprises:))


  15. Like a fine red wine/Disney, you only get better with age – happy birthday! And the Lions even pulled out a win thanks to your efforts, not too shabby.

    That brings back memories. No, not of the show but my male peep has worked for some real MMOs (Mickey Mouse outfits). One was really an MMO-the check was from Disney and had a picture of Mickey on it. You’re a bad girl, you had to remind Him that His birthday is a week from tomorrow. As He tells it, His mom was born on Oct 14, He was born in Oct 28 and his dad (this makes everything clear) was born on Halloween. That makes Him three days early and He’s never been early for anything else in His life. Happy Birthday!
