birthday delights

So my birthday isn't actually until tomorrow, but the package came to day, and I'm stuck at home snowbound another day, so....

My best friend of 46 years, Betti, sent me a 40th anniversary gift set of the Sound of Music with DVD of the movie, CD of the soundtrack and coffee table book. I spent the morning listening to the sound track while reading through the book.

Betti and I spent a lot of our adolescence singing. Our favorites included many things from AM radio (Beatles, Freddie and the Dreamers, Herman's Hermits) but also musicals like Sound of Music and Mary Poppins. So memories abound as I listen to the music.

Drawing from 1968, copied from movie posters.

A warm, lovely memory for me as well with the Sound of Music. The only time I ever went to a movie with my paternal Gma was that film. I still remember how it felt.

Best friends for that many years is a true gift. Happy Birthday!
