Happy Birthday to you!!

Rebecca is 12 today.

I talked to her last night. She's excited about her birthday and trick or treat which of course always happen on the same day. We'd hold her birthday celebration on the closest weekend so it wouldn't get lost in the Halloween flurry.

If you ever have a chance to read this, Rebecca, I hope your birthday was everything you wanted it to be.

I love you.

Yes, we felt the 5.6 quake last night. No damage - just surprise. I was relieved to see from the news this morning that there was no serious damage and no reported injuries at the epicenter (near San Jose).

Happy Birthday to Rebecca:-) Hope her day is a fun one!! I'm so glad to hear that Ray is now home and feeling better, good that the antibiotics are doing their job. I heard about the quake, thank God that you are safe and no serious damage was me, 5.6 sounds so large, I guess because it's not something I'm use to over here!! xox

I hope Rebecca has a great day!
So sorry about the loss of your frien.
Have a great time in San Fran, so exciting to meet other bloggers. I can't wait to hear.

Happy Birthday, Rebecca!

Gee, 5.6 sounds awful. Of course, it would probably stop everything here, just like a inch of snow does, just because we're not accustomed to it. I'm glad you're alright!

It's my brother's birthday today too. It is a fun day to have a birthday. Glad the quake didn't do any damage.

That is some Halloween Present---An Earthquake...! And a good sized one, too!.
A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO REBECCA...! It's good that she has her Birthday Celebration NOT connected to Halloween....

Have a fun Halloween, my dear....Don't eat too much candy....LOL!

Happy Birthday to Rebecca. One more year and she'll be a teenager!
Glad you had no damage from the quake.

Happy Birthday to Rebecca!

And Happy Halloween to you!

I'm glad all is well, I had heard about the earthquake this afternoon and thought of all my blog buds in CA!

Have a great evening!

Glad the quake wasn't more serious, I saw one photo of a store and most all of the products were on the floor. I'm catching on blogs tonight, been so busy. Also glad Ray is somewhat up and around. ec

Happy Birthday to her!

Merle said...

Hi Ann ~~ Glad the quake didn't cause more damage, but very scary for all.

Happy Birthday Rebecca. I hope she had a great day.

Enjoy your trip on Sunday Ann. It is
great that Ray is doing so well and
I hope that this will be the start of a healthier life for him. Take care, Love, Merle.

no damage here except to one 15 year old's sense of safety... she had a tizzy!

Have fun on your trip. So, the Roc Rebel Granny got "rocked" by the earthquake... I'm so glad it wasn't bad.

Happy Birthday Rebecca!!!

I tell you, those earthquakes would unnerve me! Geesh! Stay safe and near a safe spot!

Puss-in-Boots said...

Oh a very happy birthday, Rebecca.

Dear Ann, I'm so glad the earthquake was not serious. I"m so scared of those things, I've been in too many.

Take care.

Hi Ann, glad to hear that you weren't "All shook up" in the quake.
I got an email from Merle that said you wanted a "PPL" on your blog?? I'm guessing that means a "powerpoint viewer" if that is what you need it's a free download from Microsoft, it only lets you view powerpoint presentations, if you want to create them you have to buy the program (Its often a part of an "Office suite"
Hope that makes sense and its what you want to know.

Happy Birthday to Rebecca. I have two nephews whose birthdays are both on Halloween.

You had an earthquake? I didn't even hear about it. My goodness, fires, earthquakes. What's next? You'd better start building an ark!

Mary said...

Happy belated birthday to Rebecca. I hope she had a wonderful day.

Janice said...

Hi Ann,

I'm trying this again, and maybe just maybe blogger will let me comment this time!!!!!

Happy B-day to Rebecca, and hurrahh Ray is home.

My daughter is the only one that felt that earthquake, she was lying down and not feeling well at the time. I don't remember what I was doing probably writing as I did the laundry. Multi-tasking was invested by woman but a man had to name it--not fair!


Shrink Wrapped Scream said...

Happy birthday Rebecca (my Beccy is twelve, too)! Earthquake??? Blimey Ann, no one could ever accuse you of living a boring life..

Angel said...

Happy Belated birthday to Rebecca!! Hooray for 12!

So glad Ray is home and that it's not MRSA. Yikes that is scary stuff.

And I *think* I'd rather deal with hurricanes than earthquakes. At least we know they're coming. Glad you're all ok!!

Many happy returns to Rebecca :-) great to hear in your previous posts the girls are all well and that Ray's now home and feeling much better. Fires and earthquakes, glad to hear your all okay.
Best wishes

Good Morning Granny,
Thank you for stopping by. "HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY" to Rebecca. Hope she had a great day. It is nice to meet you. I enjoy meeting new friends. Feel free to stop by my site anytime you want. I have cousins that live in California. They live in the southern part near El Centro or somewhere in that area. I hope you had a great weekend. We didn't do much around here. Hubby grilled some hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill Saturday evening for me. They were so good. I love it when he cooks on the grill for me. He is a wonderful hubby. I hope you have a great Monday. I will be coming back to visit you. If you don't mind, I'll add you to my blogroll. Take care.

Karen H.
