LV's Sunday Special Edition

Was definitely not a good year for most of the country.  Everyone one was going through terrible depression times. However, in the worst of times, you an still find something good.

As you can see, this book was copyrighted in 1929. I have not read the book, but plan to do so.  Would like to see what writers had on their minds back then.

Another special event occurred this same year. A baby girl was born  
August 25, 1929
An awful lot of water has run under the bridge since that day. No one has a perfect life, but feel I have been blessed in more ways than a lot of people. I am thankful for every birthday I have.

Wishing you a very HAPPY Birthday!

I had mine last week and my niece shares your date.

Isn't it amazing all the changes we have seen in a lifetime.

I also love reading vintage books and finding out some things are still very much the same today.

Gosh, you are beautiful - seriously - you could lie by at least 25 years or more about your age - don't look a THING close. WOW, just amazing.

My momma died when she was 59 and looked like she was 90, poor thing.

Just my very best wishes and prayers for you to continue to have a happy and healthy year ahead!

Hugs to you. Keep doing what you are doing - looks GREAT on you, gal! HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!

Wow, LV, it seems like not so long ago Suzanne asked her blogging friends to send you a card for your 80th. I adore your photo and I have to say you are so pretty and do not look 84. You have a young heart and age is irrelevant. I love your 84 cake pic. I hope you have a wonderful birthday and enjoy the book.
Love you bunches,
