Yes, she's strange and different...but not THAT different.

Another Year

Yes, for those of you who haven't heard, today is my birthday. I was born on this day about 9:00 PM (Central) in 1948; if you want to know how old I am, consider that today's math exercise.

I got a bunch of birthday cards, but my two favorite ones came from my son and my spouse.
From my 10-year-old son -
Front of card: Picture of dinosaur roaring.
Inside: "Look! I managed to find one of those 'The Year You Were Born' cards. Happy Birthday!"

From my partner/spouse -
Front of card: "Sometimes I hear you doing something somewhere in the house, and I think of our lovely life together and I smile."
Inside: "Then I hear a thud, a crash and cursing. Not as lovely but I still smile. Happy Birthday."

See what I have to put up with?

    Happy Birthday, dear friend!

    I once got a card from my youngest daughter that fits right in with the one from your spouse, so I thought I'd share it with you:

    Front of card: "To someone who could have her ('his' crossed out and replaced by 'her' by my daughter) own home fix-it show on television"

    Inside: "Of course, it'd have to be on the Comedy Channel"

    She knows me too well! :)

    Hope your day is fabulous!

    Oh, oh, a belated happy birthday to you! I'm so sorry I missed reading this on the day. So much on my mind. I hope it was a wonderful day, my friend! x

    Happy Birthday Jami! I missed the post yesterday.

    Oh I guess it was TWO days ago. Damn how time flies when you're having fun! (or not).

    Thanks everyone! The push is still on to have today declared a national holiday. If so, there won't be any excuse to miss it.

    I didn't know there was a push on to declare June 22 a national holiday. Excellent! We need more non-working days.

    Yep. See, it works like this: June 20 is MY BIRTHDAY (also Nicole Kidman's, Cyndi Lauper's and Anne Murray's) as well as the last day of spring - we should already have that day off. June 21 is the first day of summer - another natural holiday. But June 22 should be a day of reflection (and recuperation) as we then ramp up to the Fourth of July.

    I'm hoping something reaches you with no problem in the mail!

    Happy Belated Birthday! The way I figure it, it's still your birthday so long as you continue to get wishes and presents... so Happy Birthday.

    Clearly the world is a better place because you are in it. Definitely a reason to celebrate!

    Thanks again! I like the idea that your birthday isn't over until everyone quits congratulating you on surviving for another year. Therefore, I'm gonna continue to PAR-TAY!
