Where is Lady Guide?


To think that I would deserve a blog post! Waoh, my head is swelling! Many wishes had poured in through different channels and I was commending Afronuts for his attempt to reach me on the phone today which was so impossible because I was at the UN office all day not knowing he has done something greater! He did made a blog post about my birthday with the "good old day" picture appearing with the post. I am so overwhelmed! Thank you so much Afronuts!!!


Also "big thanks" to Histreasure, Lara, Dee and Zena for their birthday wishes! Thanks my darlings! It is still my birthday blogsville so the gifts and the birthday wishes can still pour in. I was overwhelmed by the wishes that poured in via facebook. Thanks Geebee, Parakeet, Afrobabe, SolomonSydelle, Sokari, Spicytee, Jaycee, Jarrai, Myne Whitman {She even sent me a gift!} for your FB messages! You all made me feel loved and I appreciate this gesture a great deal.


It won`t stop there, July 19th is my marriage anniversary. Waoh 3 years and I am now a confirmed off shore wife! Hubby must meet me halfway probably with a parachute in the air for the celebration! We have come a long way! Glad I am to have a wonderful partner and friend. It is being a journey to cherish and celebrate.


Has anyone seen or heard from Lady Guide? Her last post was January 2010 and that was a very strange occurrence. Not our Lady Guide, she updates regularly. Tomorrow happens to be Lady Guide birthday and I wish her the very best of day and many happy returns! Lady Guide, you are missed and I hope you are doing very fine!


Another wonderful blogger and friend Bill Hess, who factored the payment of my cats neutering and spraying operation is having his birthday tomorrow! Happy birthday Bill Hess and many many happy returns! I am still trying to figure out how and when I can make it to Alaska to see you and your family! have fun on your day!!!


Something tells me that blogger histreasure and a few other close bloggers will be celebrating their birthday tomorrow but I am trying hard to recall if this is true... if you are a July baby and today, tomorrow, next tomorrow and the rest of July is your birthday, just know you are loved and have a fabulous birthday!


I am currently in New York and I visited DC to have a relaxing weekend with Sokari. And guess who I met? Solomon Sydelle and Catwalq! They are fabulous! They represent and I was so glad to have made the journey and to have met these wonderful progressive Nigerians! Solomon Sydelle did not look one inch like a mother of three. She looked sweet sixteen! And Catwalq, sexy is the word! Please can someone echo to Vera, the multiple Nigerianbloggers awards winner ( congratulations by the way) that I must see her before I leave the states? Yeah, thanks for delivering the message!

LOL!...For such a loaded birthday post, "where is Ladyguide" seems like an odd title...and thats a good point sef, where is that chick? I miss her posts

Boy! Calling you and not getting any response was frustrating. Thank God you explained the reason...
I'm surprised you still have that photo...good job keeping old memories...lol.

And I'm glad to have made your day. I know you would have done the same too!

Once again, happy Birthday!
