My Scrabble has been in this sad state since yesterday noon!

We’ll be right back. Sorry but Scrabble is momentarily down for maintenance. Thank you for your patience.

I’m very happy to announce that we’ve just received word from Rome that…
The War of the Vendee has won the 2012 Mirabile Dictu International Catholic Film Festival Special Jury Award for Best Film for Young Audiences!

The directors of the festival have indicated to me that they hope to come to New York City in late September for a special screening of the film, and to present us with the award in person!

I came home from mass and found that my daughter-in-law had planted petunias in the garden by my back door.  FANCY petunias!  Until five years ago I looked down on petunias because they were so ordinary, in everyone’s flower box, in every municapal planting.  Finally I got some of my own and found them so very productive and longlasting and varied that they are now one of my favorite flowers.  One can’t have too many petunias!  Thank you, Martha.

Because it’s my birthday, today I can get a free grand slam at Denny’s.

Because it’s 7/11, today I can get a free Slurpee at 7-11!

Our street, Spring Street, is only only block long and has been undergoing upgrading with new sidewalks, repaving, and sundry other improvements, courtesty of Jericho Ministries and Mayor Boughton.  Tonight Spring Street is having a party to celebrate all this wonderfulness.  On my birthday!

I had  lunch with sister Annette at the Olive Garden.  It turned out that today was also the birthday of our waitress.

Then came this message on Facebook from Laura in Florida:

LADIES AND GENTS, I JUST RECEIVED THE GREATEST GIFT OF ALL. A BABY BOY NAMED AIDEN LUX @ exac‎…tly 1:55pm EST. IM IN LOVE.

My latest (and sixth  greatgrandchild) has arrived on my birthday!   It would seem the day is off to a good start.   Glory hallelujah!

WHATTA DAY!

I would be seriously remiss if I did not post a photo of this beauteous babe!
