Happy Birthday to my Summer Baby
My elder son Kenneth is 20 today! I no longer have any teenage children - oh my!
This year though - we are far apart - he in Edinburgh, and we on Lewis, so we were unable to celebrate with him in person. Phone calls, texts, video messaging and tweets were a poor substitute. The birthday family lunch did not include John, James and I this year, but the rest of the family were there. I hope they enjoyed themselves and kept me a slice of the cake.
This picture of of our 14 year old collie, Robbie - who is really Kenneth's dog. He was asking for a picture of Robbie yesterday and says he misses him the most. I don't believe that for a moment - but here he is doddering down the drive at the croft house - Robbie the Lion Dog.
Happy Birthday, Summer Boy - thank you for always making me smile. Miss you xxx
