Twice, you Say!

It has been a while since I sat down and put together an entry here. We have had a few things going on around Dogpound South and I guess the mood never struck me. Not sure what drives the creative juices that start me writing but I guess whatever it is has been subverted by the great weather we have been having. Not that we haven’t had our share of bad, but really, bad down here is kind of like a nice summer day back in that land just north of summer that we call Dogpound North.

Two weeks ago today we had a party here at DPS. Brenda decided since she really had never had a real party for her birthday, and it seemed unlikely that anyone was planning one this year, she would throw her own. She whipped up a myriad of appetizers, invited one and all on Facebook, and danged if a party didn’t happen. We had folks from all over the valley converging on our place, trail riding friends, Canadian friends and just folks we know from the great little community here around Dogpound South.

And the title of this entry, easily explained, last year Brenda celebrated her 50th birthday. So this year she decided to celebrate it again, not uncommon you’d think, lots of folks celebrate their 29th, 39th, and even 49th multiple times, but my girl actually just turned fifty this year so as usual she is unusual. No fear of getting old here, in fact she is welcoming the great years ahead. And when you look like her why wouldn’t you.



  1. Good on you for throwing your very own 50th birthday, Brenda. And a good party it was, based on the photos. Now, blogland needs to know your thoughts on that special we look forward to your words.

  2. Ah, yes. I remember my 50th birthday well. I got a new porta-potti!

  3. Glad it was a grand time, Brenda deserved it after all her hard work to make it happen. Happy Birthday Brenda! :c)

  4. Happy Birthday - again, Brenda. So good that your party was a great one.

  5. Sounds like a great way to celebrate!
