Yes friends, today my twin sister Janice and I are officially "pre-antique"! Well, that is if we were automobiles. 50 year old furniture is labeled as "retro", and we like that label much better, lol! We were born on a Tuesday evening, just 5 minutes' time from each other. Pictured above is the cake that mother had made for us. The black and white framed photo is of Janice and me way back in 1965. A fun time was had by all. We had agreed to spend a set limit on each other, as it's really about the together times isn't it? The gifts were great, but the day included many special moments that will outlast any material gift. Daddy passed back in 1989, and mother's second husband passed in 2004. My how time flies. My name rhymes with "Janice", as was common practice in the 1960's of rhyming twins' names. Mother had a close friend named Danice, so she actually had that name chosen first. She always wanted twin daughters, and at age 30-something she got us. Janice and I both suffered broken bones in 2013, and she is still recovering. Hopefully 2014 won't bring any more injuries or illnesses. We anticipate many more good memories of times together as a family. Prim blessings from your now "retro" blog buddy!
