Today we pay tribute to Pegoleg because, it’s her birthday! Yeah! Woo hoo! Congratulations, Peg on your 39th birthday (again). Here’s your bloggy-birthday greeting!
(Cue “We are family,…. I got all my sisters with me – Sister Sledge)!
I have 5 sisters and 3 brothers. I remember all nine of us kids singing and dancing to this tune – at the big house, years ago! Sadly for you, there is no video, except in my head)
In honor of her special day, I went back into the vault of family pictures. After all, a picture says a 1,000 words, right? I’ve picked a few photos of the two of us as we were growing up just so you know how much I love my little sister.
Here we are, undercover, or over the top, or girls just wanna have fun! I’m styling in Mom’s caftan or moomoo (sp?) and back-up wig. Not sure where Peg got her unique look, but I likes it!
I’m a tennis nut, kind of self-taught at my favorite city park, where I’d go for pick-up games with the hippies who hung out then (it was the 70s). Peg soon followed, becoming an accomplished player. She was awarded a tennis scholarship to college! I was so envious!
DAMN, we were fit, and HOT!!!
Peg doesn’t have to worry about aging. She’s still as youthful and talented as she ever was. Who said white women can’t jump? Man, can Peg leap!
And, lest you forget, Peg loves her chocolate. She doesn’t enjoy it as much since she won the Family Weight Loss Challenge last summer. But, back when she was a wee-grasshopper, she indulged, occasionally.
Here’s a little known fact – Peg and I are the SAME AGE for two weeks. Yes, it’s true! When we were young, she loved that fact and would lord it over me! 😦 Now that we are more mature, well, Peg might not like it so much. Because now, she’s as OLD as me. Mwa-aahaaa.
My sister Peg is a talented, kind, loving, beautiful, multi-faceted woman and I am proud to say, my sister!
Give her a big bloggy birthday shout-out by going to her site and giving her your love – as in visit often, comment always, and click away on her site, because, as you know, she loves those stats!

(See how I’ve learned at your limber knee, oh weedhoopper?)
I Love you, Peg! Happy Birthday … and many, many more! 🙂

He chronicled all the silly things his kids made him endure as we were growing up. Thanks, also, to MK who stars in the Easter photo. You can almost make out her halo, she’s so … wonderfully MK! Love my family!
