Some times you read something that someone has written and instantly bond with them. That has happened to me in the last couple of years. As soon as I see their name in print, I hear myself say ” Great! More jam for my bread!”.
I have yet to meet in the flesh, the Lady I am referring to, but I have had the honour of speaking to her in the Bosom of her family via Skype. Although we were on different sides of the pond, it felt like we had been next door neighbours all of our lives. Not quite neighbours though as she hails from Abilene, KS.
Today this wonderful person celebrates the milestone of 80 years. Others who share the milestone this month with her are:
- Mikhail Gorbachev
- Rupert Murdoch
- Hal Linden
- William Shatner
- Sandra Day O’Connor
- John Astin
- Rolf Harris
- Peter Marshall
Eighty years of stories from the wonderful life of Corky. That in itself is a book title and she has more than enough to fill several volumes.
How did I meet her? She is the mother of Conrad, the leader of our Friday Loose Blogging Consortium. To have produced a son like him… the woman deserves to be canonised! 😉
Congratulations Corky, and have a wonderful day. My glass will be raised to you this evening. May you have many more happy years with Joe.
Lán grá & hugs
