Sunshine.....On my shoulder.....

It's the 2016 celebration of Linda Sue's Birthday.!! Better late than not at all!

Here's the great news for Sunshine this year. At this moment she is as happy as possible. She is in "Nashville," and loving every moment! Knowing her, we will hear all about her trip to C&W Heaven once she returns. If you haven't already wished our Sunshine a Happy Birthday, now's the time!!

Are you ready for a celebration? June 25th. is the Birthday of one of our own.. Not just ANY one, but a woman of substance, class and laughter. A lady who knows how to tell a tale with facts and music and plenty of smiles. She's so many facets, it's hard to keep up....but the one thing for sure that we all know and appreciate....Is that SUNSHINE is there for us after the rain......and the Rainbow only she can create.....brings such COLOR to our lives...

Linda Bilyeu, a.k.a. "Sunshine625," free lance writer of Hubpages, editor of The Sunshine Times, author of her own blog. Avon Lady with Attitude!

C'mon and join me, in wishing our girl a very Happy Birthday and many more!!

A SUNSHINE Haiku

She's here and she's there

Where ever she wants to be

Don't try to stop her.



You see her on here

And Yes, also Hub Hoppers

Maybe in a blog


She is so funny

But will give you her last dime

I call her, "Honey."


A Mama, a wife

Grandma of Lily and Faith

A wonderful life


You'll see her in line

Buying Keith Urban C.D's

She always looks fine



So true to her self

You can't help but see it

No drama for her.




Her Birthday's today

Let's bake her a cake and sing

She will sing along



There's no gift for her

She has it ALL, anyway

Just give her a hug





Come to the party

We're waiting for you and you!

Get ready to sing





So take a deep breath

Get the camera ready

To capture her smile




"Happy Birthday," Friend

We love you for WHO you are

Please don't ever change!!!




You are Cordially Invited!

WOW!!   Lighting up the sky!
WOW!! Lighting up the sky!

Put on your Dancing Shoes

Crank up the volume, move to the music.....Let's get this party, rockin! All your friends will be here! The tables are loaded with home made goodies and hugs are passed out for free. Let your hair down and have a ball. This is a time to celebrate.

Leave your cares and worries, at the door. Share the excitement and make your share of memories. Birthdays are but once a year. You know and I know, we'll remember this party, all year long!

Only Keith can love Sunshine this way!!

What a groovy party! I am dancing along, eating and drinking.... . Thanks effer! Happy birthday Sunshine. May you never get tired of dancing on the beat of your favorite country music.

My sista and I share the same initials, so we've decided to use it on those picture poems. Now if you have a picture editor program, you can change any picture into a sketch or a painting. Love you all!

Linda Sue.....A-Ha! The celebrations begins early this year?.....I just recovered from last year's wild fiesta!

fpherj48 3 years ago from Beautiful Upstate New York Author

I don't have a specific plan....I'll just start my day out as usual and see what happens.....how I feel.....what the weather is like......you know...just taking it easy and trying not to throw myself into a fit of hysterics, when I think about the NUMBER birthday this is....Now, now, I'm the one who wrote the hub about age being as attitude, didn't I?

Oh God....what was I thinking??? LMAO!! Hugs!

Sunshine625 3 years ago from Orlando, FL

I love birthdays. They are our own special day. We could do what we want, how we want and for as long as we want. Well most of us can. I hope you do something very special for your birthday my Effer!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!!! XOXOXO


fpherj48 profile image

fpherj48 3 years ago from Beautiful Upstate New York Author

I wished you a Happy New Year, at least 4 times...so now I'll just say, "Happy 49 and a HALF Birthday!!" My half birthday doesn't fall on any special occasion, damn it!


Sunshine625 profile image

Sunshine625 3 years ago from Orlando, FL

Darn I forgot about the 1/2 party, but I didn't forget about my 1/2 birthday. Not everyone is lucky enough to share a 1/2 birthday with Jesus unless they were born on June 25th. I'm such a genius.

Yet tonight is New Years Eve and I'm stopping by to wish you a HAPPY NEW YEAR!! Wishing you an awesome 2013!!! Love ya my Effer J ;)

Effer, you're the best...don't let this go to your head. (I had a full house again this weekend so wasn't on the computer to be here in time.)

SS, hope you had a wonderful day and another one tomorrow to recouperate!

HA!!! Do you realize WHO you're asking??? I'll have the leftovers wrapped and hidden away before anyone gets here! Sometimes, I even wash off paper plates!!.......and just cut the "used" part from napkins......and any little things guests leave behind??? I firmly believe in "Finders keepers....losers, weepers!!" If I ever figure out a way to UN-knot balloons, I'll be happy........Some day I should make a list written by the CLASSIC Penny Pincher......I've thought up things you could never believe!! My friends think I'm a mad-woman in this area....and I think they're just jealous they aren't as frugal and clever as I am!! LOL!!

I mean Fun's, Fun and all that...but, I'm just sayin.............

To all you wonderful Happy Birthday wishers/partiers......I shall give our Guest of Honor a nudge and tell her to get her cute butt over here and SHE can reply to Ya'all!!! (I'm a good friend and I love you all....but I ain't stupid!!) The "Effer"

She's all this and more! I would post the song "She's a Lady" is possible, but we will just have to hum it for now. Happy Birthday to a great all around hubber and friend.

You are so cute Sunshine---Celebrate the month of June and July because they are twin months. That is what my Swiss Grandmother said. Happy Everyday Birthday.

I have friends that think it would be cool to celebrate for a few days also! The more the merrier. Your birthday in April if I remembered correctly one of your wacky friends started celebrating two weeks ahead! Hahaha!!

I recall one birthday in particular in my young & wild days.....before my brain had developed to the GENIUS point it is now.....(so it's really not important to know what day it is!)

It wasn't my fault.....(and of course this proves my maturity level)....it was my crazy friends....(honest) They thought it would be "cool" to celebrate all week-end for my BD......

I believe we fell out one at a time, as the days progressed.......I may have been the "last gal standing".....but, my birthday's in April......I woke up May 2nd.

I celebrate my birthday the day before, day of and day after. Don't we all? If not then I've just exposed my true nature that since birthdays are my favorite holiday I just can't celebrate them for only one day! Party on dudes...and dudettes!!!
