Re: Happy birthday Mama! P.S.
I have to mention my gifts because they were so unexpected, coming from two friends and my hairdresser, people who never gifted me before. One got me a portable pillow for my tush, she got one for herself because of a bad back, and thought of me. My hairdresser got me flowers. And the piece de resistance, another friend got me a red, green, blue, yellow Scotch plaid cap with SCOTLAND on the front in bright yellow letters. My grandparents lived in Scotland for 20 years and loved it. My aunts and uncles were born there. My mother was raised with Scottish songs and nursery rhymes that were told me when I was small. So this was very special. I started to cry. My friend is British, she said in her stiff upper lip way, "Now, now, there'll be no tears!" The kids want me to pick out a laptop.
