Nifty, Nifty - who turned 50?

Say it isn't so!!! How can it be that my oldest niece is 50 years old today? It seems like just yesterday I was holding her while rocking her in Daddy's big platform rocker on Ross Road smelling her baby smell. Such a beautiful baby she was - from the minute she was born. For a thirteen year old, it was like a little miracle. My last doll Mama bought me was a really big doll that I kept upstair. I'm talking big! Mama had a picture of Dee in that doll's dress! It fit her perfectly when she was a toddler and looked so cute on her. Of course my sister didn't mind that I was so crazy about her since it guaranteed a built in baby-sitter/slave! I know I have spoken of her on my blog before but I couldn't let this little milestone go by without mention. I especially have it mention it since she brought it up on FaceBook earlier today! Personally, I liked my 50's. The picture is of her and her dear hubby and her beloved Dorothy Dog. I don't get to see her too often - maybe the family reunion if we all get there but she leads a very busy life. I have come to the conclusion that she doesn't know how to make a bad picture. I mean really - I can't think of one time I've seen one of her. I do have a picture of her and her mom and they look exactly alike. Believe me, her Mom is beautiful too - always has been. Her's was the first name I spoke aloud as a toddler and she has always tried to "take care" of me like she does everyone in her life that she loves. Love you 2lbs Dee! You too Big Al!
