Good morning. Tina here. I am enjoying August, and since I am a postcard collector, I decided to share some August postcards with you this morning.
Below is a birth announcement for a little girl born in August 1915. I was also born in August, and was feeling rather old, until I realized that Lorraine will be celebrating her 98th birthday this month, if she is still around. Happy birthday Lorraine!
Maybe I will be lucky and get a Rockford watch for my birthday.
The postcard below is from Italy. My birthday in Italian is Ferragosto, which is an actual holiday in many European countries. It is the day the Virgin Mary ascended into heaven, and also it is just a great day to chill out and not have to go to work! At two years old, I could have posed topless with the lady below and fit right in.
Although I am a Leo, I have noticed that a lot of the info on the postcards have Virgo as the horoscope sign. August, as do the other months, has two birthsigns.
Okay, I have to do something about this. I think I will have a bracelet made with peridot, sardonyx, moonstone and carnelian so that I can have this conjugal felicity that apparently wants to avoid me.
I have lots of friends born in August. Last Saturday we went to a birthday party for two friends, a very fun pool party with wonderful food and great music from a live band.
This Saturday I will be attending a party for a friend's 90th birthday! Happy birthday Barbara!
Wow, good and bad characteristics are gathered below. The rose is beautiful, but beware the spider!
