Today the PM turns the big 4-0 and we thought we'd dedicate this post to her.

Awhile back The Nanny gave the PM a box of paper and pictures she had when the PM was a wee one herself. They had a cottage on the lake and the time there was spent surrounded by nature and lots of love.

The Nanny, the PM and The Duck.


The wild loving Penny.


In the box of papers, the PM found evidence of "blogging behaviour" way back then.

When it was a rainy day by the lake, the PM would engage in her animal sayings hobby. She would go through the wildlife magazines and cut out her favourite photos. Then she would make up little notes on what she thought was going on with the animals which she'd tape to the photo

Here are some of our favourites.
We took the liberty to translate as apparently they did not have spell check way back then.

"Where is that little devil?"

"Help around"


"He looks familiar"

"The King!"

"Let's buy Mom a gift for Mother's Day"

Happy Birthday PM!!!

We are so very glad you were and still are a little weird.
