Join me in wishing our moderator Zuzu a happy birthday.
Her cats are busy preparing a special meal for her so they declined to participate in this thread...
I would have posted a rose photo but nothing here is blooming at the moment.
Where do we go and who do we talk to about getting a rose named after Zuzu ? Someone out there must have "connections"...... Hurray!

Thanks, Everyone. I love the cat and cake image, Toni. This is a big one for me: I'm 70.

Whoop, whoop! Happy Day Zuzu!

I agree with Mike; Zuzu needs a rose with her name. Some of you talented rose folk could surely breed one?

If you were a rose, Zuzu, what sort of rose would you want to be?

As soon as I saw Funny Face, I felt a strong connection. It's not my favorite rose, but if I were a rose, I'd be this one.

She is a happy and free-spirited looking rose - not afraid to bend the rules of convention, perhaps?

What a sweet compliment, Teri. Smiling

Paul, do you feel older and wiser? I don't think my thinking has changed much in the last 50 years. I was shopping with a friend a few years ago, when I was 67, and I steered her away from one of the department stores, telling her they sell nothing but old lady clothes. We both laughed till we cried when we thought about what I had said.

Older but not certain as to being any wiser. I wish my legs were 20 years younger but i can still do what I want. It just takes longer..

How old does one have to be to wear "old lady clothes"? Surely we are all still much too young!

Funny Face ??? Nowhere near distinguished enough for someone of your education, knowledge and experience. I'd have expected something more along the lines of Chrysler Imperial or Touch of Class.

Chrysler Imperial is just wrong for someone who thinks of cars as useless luxuries. Big Grin

Actually I'm not surprised that Zuzu chose Funny Face... I was thinking along the lives of Topsy Turvy myself... *Blush* *Blush* *Blush*

Yes, Toni! You've got my number! If I had never seen Funny Face, my choice would have been Topsy Turvy.

If you don't ask, the answer is always 'no.'
