Happy Happy Birthday Mary, have a wonderful day! 🎂🎂🍨🍨🎉🎉🎉. Yesterday was my birthday I was 73 .
I so enjoy reading your blog and I love Reed and all he does with you. He is a special young man. I love seeing the farm but your weather is a Little scary. I live in Washington state we have lots of rain but not the storms and heavy rains you have.
The corn growing is amazing.
Enjoy your day with family and friends and have many more birthdays.
Happy birthday to you. Have a great one. Maybe you will get a surprise. I wish I was 70 .
You look GREAT for 70!!! I’m 74 and it is a wonderful life. I work hard like you, as my husband has passed away and someone has to take care of the farm. I don’t have the strength/stamina that I used to, but I
keep “chugging”. No children to help me either. Happy Day to you!!!
Happy Birthday….hope you have a wonderful day!
Love the before & after photos 🙂
