All over the world, people should be celebrating. Today is the 85th Annual Day of the Dowager Duchess (aka my mother’s birthday). I’m probably in big trouble — yet again — for announcing her age. She’s no longer sixteen, but she’s gotten even sweeter over the years.
|SEVENTEEN GOING ON EIGHTEEN.
Happy Birthday, Mamasita!
Love, your Boys from Seville
(and your Boy in New York, too)

Happy Birthday Dowager Duchess, enjoy your special day! Beautiful photograph.xx
Thanks! She said she IS enjoying her day!
Happy Birthday to you, Madame Dowager Duchess! What a 'knockout' you are!! Guess that is OK to say to a woman I have never met but fell I know thanks to your son! Have a great day, you deserve it!
I'm sure the Dowager Duchess doesn't mind seeing herself described as a knock-out (but I'm sure she's laughing and blushing).
What a sweet picture!
Taken at my father's parents' house, I just learned.
Happy birthday, Dowager Duchess! May all your wishes come true. Hope you have a special day.
I am sure the Dowager Duchess is honored! Thanks!
Happy day to a beautiful lady 🙂
Thanks, Monkey Man!
85? She's just a baby!
Happy Birthday to the Duchess.
Loving that photo! I wish I had the gams to pull that pose off.
The Duchess STILL has those gams. Pretty amazing. But now she prefers sneakers.
Ma cher DD – you ARE sixteen, but with a few years of experience to hand! I salute you!

STILL completely innocent, I'm sure. Although, don't miss this old post (http://mitchellismoving.blogspot.com.es/2011/07/picking-up-couple-of-sailors.html) for some insights on the Dowager Duchess.
What a beautiful dame she is…I can see a magnificent glint in her eyes and she her smile is so gorgeous!Happy Birthday DD from SD!!!!!
The Duchess will be grateful!
¡Feliz cumpleaños! and Bon anniversaire, Madame DD! You've raised a fine boy, it seems!
Judy (in Saint Louis, formerly from New Jersey [don't hate me for that] and Massachusetts)
The Duchess has no anti-New Jersey bias. She's got family there! And, yes, you tell her what a fine boy she raised!
What a hoot! What a woman!
God bless and keep her!
Happy belated Birthday, Your Grace! You're in good company, my Mum, Queen Elizabeth [not of the UK, but the Netherlands] hopes to tick off 92 this Thursday. 😉
