MY DAY, MY WAY - August 25, 1929


Hello blogging friends. This is your special invitation to my 81st birthday party. No presents please, your comment is the best present of all.

For easier reading, I am listing the things shown on the above image that happened in 1929 besides me being born.
1. Seeing eye dog organization formed.
2. First academy awards are announced.
3. New York stock market crashed.
4. First public demonstration of color TV.
5. Comic book character, TinTin is created by Herge.
6. Edwin Hubble discovers the universe is expanding.

Three months old - November 1929.

I was told that mother cried when she saw me at birth. She probably was expecting a prettier baby. Since I was the first, I am sure she was looking for the perfect one. Over the years, I have been asked numerous times where my name came from. I was never interested enough when younger to ask. I assumed I came into the world screaming, and she named me (the voice)LaVoice. There are a lot of things I would like to know, but I waited too late to ask.

After a short trip back in time, each of you pick a cake and celebrate.

You are the classic vintage from that era and I love that you were born when so many things were just getting started. I can only hope that I live as long as you and can celebrate with my family and friends across the blogging internet or whatever else they have come that time.

You are so wise and have long become a personal mentor of sorts to me through so many of my own personal struggles. You are a true lady in every sense of the word and I wish you many, many birthday blessings on your very special day!

Happy 21st birthday! With 60 years of experience~

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

O, darlin' LV...something just told me to come over for a visit tonight and I am so glad I did.
HAPPIEST BIRTHDAY, dear one. O how I hope I am as up-to-date as you when I turn 81. You do so well with your computer and I am very impressed. You seem to have such a zest for life and that is a blessing.

I loved reading things that happened in 1929. I came along a little later..1937 so I'll be 73 next New Year's Eve. Wish we lived close enuf to celebrate together..:))
Like you, there's so many things I'd like to ask my mother and dad...but waaay too late.

May God bless....

Happy Birthday - hope it was a good one!! Wish we could all be there to celebrate with you.

There are so many questions I wished I had asked my mother when she was here but I didn't really become interested until I was older and then it was too late.

Blessings to you,
