Thanks very much Laurence. I appreciate your support and kindness.
You can tell I had a huge senior moment thinking tonight was Thursday...ugh! But at the moment I am a rather sick puppy that doesn't know what day it is. Fighting a horrendous cold! Oh well, nothing like getting a head start.

G'day, Stan - how are you?!! I'm SO sorry that I haven't visited your gallery in quite a while, but Phil and I often think of you over there in Hawaii!! ;o)

I really LOVE what you've done with this floral image - it is truly BEAUTIFUL...and a most wonderful birthday card and dedication for Mary, too!! :o)

Mary K. Robison November 29, 2007

Stan, I'm so thrilled that you remembered through the haze of your medications to even think of posting ANYthing "tonight", let alone create such a special floral image for my birthday! Thank you, my dear friend!!!

I guess this means I can start celebrating from right now all the way through to Saturday at 1:00 AM California time (since Hawaii's time is later than here)! LOL!
Thanks again, Stan, for the effort you put into this gorgeous floral. I love both versions, but those snow-white petals REALLY caught my eye before I even clicked on the thumbnail!
Aloha, Mary #5145879

Stanley J. Contrades November 29, 2007

Thanks very much Paul and Mary and am very grateful for your continued support and responses.

I don't see why not in your starting to celebrate right now and all the way into fact, why not Sunday too (LOL)!!! I'm only two hours behind you - 11:54 p.m. my time, 1:54 a.m. your time!
I'm off to lala land! Thanks again, my friend!
