72 Kisses

A long time ago in a land far, far away...A sweet young thing

met and married a young hottie. 

Naturally the wheel of life turned and they had a baby together 72 years ago today.

This only child was much loved (and spoiled) by both her parents

until the day came when she ventured out on her own and found her own personal hottie.

This young lady and her handsome young man got a little busy and had 4 children.

The second child born to them was me.

And as I grew into a sweet young thing

I, in turn met and married my own personal hottie

"Hey, Donna Jean" 
(AKA "Mom" and "Grandma" and "GGMa" to so many of us.) 

"You have a lot to answer for Missy!!!"

But I'll let Bob administer the punishment. 

72 Kisses from me if you could, Bob.  Dispensed through out the day if you would.  And toss in a few hugs while you're at it too.

Happy Birthday Mom!  Love You!
