Yes, it’s the 86th Annual Dowager Duchess Day. If I looked and acted a lot younger than my age, I’d brag, too. Here’s wishing the multi-talented Dowager Duchess a happy birthday and another artful year painting, knitting, and creating beauty wherever she goes.

I INHERITED THE SWEATER IN 1969 AND WORE IT ANOTHER 20 YEARS.
Who would have thought, as the Dowager Duchess sang and painted “Marrakesh” in 1969 (the same year I inherited the above-pictured sweater), that her son and son-in-law would one day be living just across the Mediterranean Sea from Morocco.

Happy birthday Mom/Mim/DD from your three sons!
