So, Yesterday

     Yesterday, it was my birthday.  One of those difficult ones, in between the ones that start with "3" and the ones that start with, "Wow, I can't believe I made it this far!"

     --Except, of course, they're really all in the latter category.  We're every one of us wildly unlikely critters and yet, here we are.  That's worth celebrating.

     Me, I celebrated by going to bed early.  Ah. sleep: the cheapest gift and yet one of the most difficult to acquire, give or indulge in when you really want to.

Happy late birthday.

I'll be down for the 1500 this weekend. If we have a get-together, I'll buy you a beer and a burger.

Happy belated and many happy returns of the day.

Happy birthday. remember, the trip to 60 occurs at twice the speed as the trip to 21. I hope your day was all you wanted it to be.

Somewhere, I have a cross stitch piece my wife made me. It's a turtle on his back and it says " if I had known I was going to live this long, I'd have taken better care of myself."

Take care.

What is it Stingray always irradiates on birthdays? Something about a semi-aquatic mammal, an avian and some sheep? Anyway, is this anyone we know?

Happy Birthday from one Gemini to another.
It is always surprising to me when I'm around for another year; never expected to make it this far.

Hope your day was as pleasant as mine.

Just wait until you get to the ones beginning with 6!
THEN, you may complain.

Happy Birthday.

I'm somewhat bewildered by the improbable number attached to my age, but I don't know how to lower it.

Congratulations on making it through another year in our Declining Civilization!

Many more happy ones, to you and Tam. Remember; it's not the age, it's the mileage..... ;-)

Getting older stinks, but it beats the alternative.

I never pass up a chance to wish someone a Happy Birthday. Multiple times even.

Happy Birthday

>> ... the ones that start with, "Wow, I can't believe I made it this far!"

I hear that. About the time I turned 40 I started thinking about getting the t-shirt that says, "If I had known I was going to live this long, I would have taken better care of myself."

I haven't done it yet. I'll be 59 next week. I keep thinking about it.

Happy Birthday!

What gets depressing is getting old enough to be referred to as "elderly". You can't imagine how P.O.'d I am about that description. I'm "only 69", not even 70 yet!

Comrade Misfit said...

A very belated happy birthday to you!

Your birthday? How nice, now you can vote!

Wish I'd known that before I said "no" to the extended warranty...

Happy Birthday!

Once you get past the numbers beginning in "f" it zooms by even faster.

It's never the quantity, but the quality.

Very nice image, JD! --I rarely click on "blind" links, so I had not seen it until just now.

I should have mentioned the photo was from Theo Spark blog on Wednesday.
