You can't hi-jack your own blog, silly goose. :) That's mine and Kelly's job. LOL!

Happy, Happy Birthday!!! Your bbq and cake look SO delicious. Have a fantastic birthday and be sure to stop by my blog today to pick up your cake. *wink*

Chatty Kelly said...

Happy Happy! Well, you are certainly getting lots of well wishes today. And God's girl is right - you do deserve those 100 comments after your funny trick on ADHD's blog. LOL!!!

Well, you have a nice little write up at my blog & Edie's, and who knows what else is in store for today? And tomorrow...we'll be celebrating alittle more at your place!

From the Heart said...

I just came from Edie's to wish you a Happy Birthday. The cake she has for you is beautiful.
My oldest daughter will be your age in July. Wow! How did that happen, I'm not "old" just aged well (l0l). The l0l is "laugh out loud" not 101 yrs old. (:D)
Blessings on your Birthday,
AliceE.

Leslie said...

I read on Chatty Kelly's that today is your b'day.....Happy Birthday and may you be blessed in this next year of your life!

My ADHD Me said...

Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday dear SUE........
Happy Birthday to you!!

I'll be over for cake later!

Hi MyADHDMe.

Thank you for your birthday wishes.
I am feeling like I shouldn't have acted like you when I was on your blog. Who am I to look at the speck in your eye when I could very well have a plank in my own.

Good Friends are such a wonderful treasure. I would like to make sure we are even. SO I am leaving an anonymous comment on my own blog to say to anyone interested, PLEASE leave me as many comments as you see fit.

"Sing praises to God, sing praises;sing praises to our King, sing praises."
Psalm 47:6

My ADHD Me said...

Now Sue, I thought your April Fool's Day joke was hilarious!!

But if you are sure that you want us to leave many comments....who am I to argue?

My ADHD Me said...

I wouldn't do this to just anyone. It must be someone who is a great friend.

My ADHD Me said...

I LOVE someone that can be sweet, calm and wonderful and then pull a great joke out of their hat (or out of their computer!)

My ADHD Me said...

As ET said, "when good bloggers go bad...."

WAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

My ADHD Me said...

WAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

My ADHD Me said...

Thank you SO much for the cool birthday gifts!!

My ADHD Me said...

I'm going to show them on my blog!

My ADHD Me said...

What do you mean I don't follow through......of course I'm going to do it!

My ADHD Me said...

I might even actually DO the puzzle and then post a picture of that too!

My ADHD Me said...

I do hope you have a SUPERCALIFRAGILISTICEXPIALIDOCIOUS
Day!!!

My ADHD Me said...

When I'm with her I'm confused. Out of focus and bemused. And I never know exactly where I ammmmmmm.

My ADHD Me said...

oopppps. That song sounds like me.

My ADHD Me said...

She can throw a whirling dervish out of whirl........

My ADHD Me said...

Happy Birthday Sue!
NOW we are even!!!!

Beverlydru said...

Happy Birthday Weekend. When I saw 61 comments, I knew the sisters and Heaven had been here without even looking.

I emjoy reading your thoughtful comments on aforementioned blogs.And from Kelly's birthday wishes description, I know anyone would be richly blessed to have you as a friend. Hoope your day was special.

Aspiemom said...

Happy Birthday!

(Your BBQ looks yummy!)

God's girl said...

Beverlydru- too funny:)

God's girl said...

I left a comment on ADHDme's comments to share the love with you today...

God's girl said...

But I totally see she has...

God's girl said...

already thought of the same idea.

God's girl said...

I like the anonymous comment you left yourself...

God's girl said...

what a trooper!

God's girl said...

I'm glad you are always tickled when we write...

God's girl said...

yeah for us making something of today!

God's girl said...

Happy birthday! Have I said that yet?

God's girl said...

Well, I will be back...AGAIN!

God's girl said...

There are still 9 hours, and 12 minutes left of this day...

God's girl said...

according to my time that is...

God's girl said...

Aren't birthdays great????

God's girl said...

It's a great day today
It's a great day today
It's a great day today
This is Sue J.'s b-day

God's girl said...

See ya later:)

God's girl said...

**I wonder if anyone thinks I'm a stalker?!?!?!**

God's girl said...

'cause I'm not you know...

God's girl said...

but I could probably be confused with one...

God's girl said...

as I comment and comment and...

God's girl said...

ok, gotta' go:)

My ADHD Me said...

Oh yes...I LOVE the anonymous comment you left yourself : )

Chatty Kelly said...

Is it time for the limbo yet? Woooo! Of course, you'll have to break out the coffee for us to help clean up later too. :-)

Sue J. said...

It's time for the birthday girl to check in (and it really IS me; note the identity; no hijacking!).

This has been one of the best days ever! Thanks to all of you for coming by to visit....

Edie, the browniful display over at Rich Gifts was delectable! Thanks for making enough for everyone to share. (Hope the Tea Party is going well, btw!)

God's girl, your bloggy commenting will always prove the adage that less really is more. The less you write per comment, somehow, the more comments there are. Scientifically, I'm not sure I can explain that. We surely are having fun, though, aren't we?

Leslie, Alice E (thanks for the disclaimer!), Beverly, Aspiemom--thanks for the well wishes and the sweet visits in between the comments. You all are brave for venturing over here today!

ADHDMe....EVEN? Oh man! One day, you and God's girl will go head to head in a comment-generating competition. It's just a matter of finding a bloggy host. You two are outrageous! But, I do thank you for a most enjoyable visit last week and the really nice blog you left on your page today--consider your speck removed!

Chatty Kelly, my dear friend....What beautiful words! You could have gone on and on--She doesn't shop; I shop for her! She likes red wine; I like white. She drives cross-country; I won't leave the state in my car (without another driver).... Thank God for Himself and coffee, because, you're right, nothing much else matches up.

But, Jesus didn't exactly pick people just like Himself either. I'm God; he's a tax collector. I'm Lord, he's a physician, etc., etc. Yet, it was the plan all along, and it surely is with us, too. Thank you, friend, for everything, and especially, this morning, for that unexplainable lump in my throat.... ;-)

More on the blog tomorrow, perhaps.

Now, you all run along and enjoy the gorgeous sunset. I've got coffee on in the kitchen that you can take with you (and I could brew up some new hazelnut or french vanilla if you'd like); more cake here or at Edie's; I'll pull the balloons in tonight, so the birds won't get tangled up in them. I gardened all day, so I'm limbo-ed out! But, feel free to party on.

Thanks, all!!

Chatty Kelly said...

So, in your analogy....who gets to be Jesus? I guess you do, and I have to be the tax collector? Gee-whiz. ;-)

Hugs girlfriend! I'll see you in the morning. Hope you had a GLORIOUS day! The weather was perfect for gardening.

Joy in The Truth said...

Happy Birthday Sue! :) You sound like such a special friend! :)

(I love doin' the "knock and run" too!)

On Purpose said...

Happy Birthday! There is a whole lotta celebrating going on here with 88 comments! Wow!!

I love you my friend...can I email my address and you can ship me a little slice of that chocolate cake?

Anonymous said...

Wow you sure know how to have a party! No matter where you go you just invite fun, love, and good friends. I look forward to the day when I meet you in person, either here or when we get Home.

Hope you're having a Wonderful, God-filled Birthday!

Anonymous said...

Only 10 more to go. Here let me give you a little push to help you get past the finish line.

... Oh wait, Jesus will bring you past the finish line, what am I talking about.

Anonymous said...

I'll get the coffee started for you. I brought some extra carafes since you have so many coffee drinkers at your party. You go have fun now. I've got this part covered.

Anonymous said...

Did you know that you can have your cake and eat it too? Oh yes but only you can.

God's girl said...

Chatty Kelly said you could be Jesus, and she could be tax collector. I will be the persistent widow who never gave up!

God's girl said...

God's girl said...

She's out there saving the world!

God's girl said...

God's girl said...

Imagine the commotion I would...

God's girl said...

create in five minutes...

God's girl said...

every day...

God's girl said...

for 365 days...

God's girl said...

for 50 years...

God's girl said...

(I'm still pretty young, ya know)

God's girl said...

Anyway, it would be a long time to say the least...(Ha, get it? Say the least...less is more...)

God's girl said...

DO you want to "Knock and run" some chocolate cake to my door???

God's girl said...

Virginia to Wisconsin... It's only 5,000,000 miles, that's not bad!

God's girl said...

Actually, I'm not good at geometry...

God's girl said...

I mean geography...

God's girl said...

Or geometry for that matter...

God's girl said...

But I love algebra...

God's girl said...

Now what was I saying...

God's girl said...

Oh well...

God's girl said...

MONKEYS ARE FUNNY!

Daphine said...

I came from Edie's blog.

Happy Birthday! I hope that it was a great day for you!

My ADHD Me said...

Happy Birthday Sue....

ATTENTION EVERYONE....Mass Multiple comments end tonight!!

And yes, of course I was the anonymous.....(but just the one...not the multiple ones)

Can you imagine growing up with an April Fools Day birthday??? Well, after today, perhaps you can.

Anyway, we are blessed to have you in our life.

So again, Happy Birthday and Good Night!

Edie said...

Goodnight! Hope you had a great birthday!
