Today’s post has two galleries and each comes with a song: the first is of mama with doors, and the second is of mama without doors. Happy birthday, mom!
My mom is a regular viewer of my blog and after a birthday post for somebody else she sent me this message (translated): “Your bloggaries (her invented word) made me yearn to have a birthday every day. Or to be a door, especially a Thursday Door.”
You see, mama, today IS your birthday and it IS Thursday too! How lucky are you? That’s why you get two galleries, and the blogging memories at the end contain links to all your past birthday posts, too.
But first some easy listening – your favourite song from this year’s San Remo festival:
Here is a compilation of my favourite door photos with you as the model. They are in the chronological order as taken, and you can observe how your interest for doors has grown together with mine.
The second gallery contains happy together moments from the past year, more precisely from last summer, as the three summer months were the only times we could be together in the entire year. And I’m grateful that we had at least that time.
First I spent some time in Piran with both of you and then I moved to Ljubljana where you joined me later. We had our annual card tournament and then spent the most wonderful four days together in Kranjska Gora under the Julian Alps and around it.
To take us through the gallery, here is a song “Mama” sung by Helen Reddy about what a beautiful thing a mother is. But who mothers mama?
Who cheers the clown?
Who heals the doctor?
Who mothers mama?
Let me be the one that you can come to
When out goes the sun
And everyone runs to mama
'Til the storm is ended
Mama, she’s the bottom line
Mama makes the water wine
And finally, here is our summer of 2020 in short. Look at this woman and tell me how she can be 57 (I mean…).
Not that we are counting, but happy 57, mom! (I mean…) But you keep telling people that you had me at 12, so who knows.
Happy birthday, cin cin and hope to see you soon, mom! And I hope you enjoyed your rich Thursday Doors birthday post. To many more!
