Golden Years


It's no biggie, but yesterday was my birthday.

It really is not biggie and it was way more important for me to do my 12 of 12 than go on about becoming another year older, let alone posting about it.

Yet, here I am - a day late, a few dollars short and using non-valuable bandwidth to catch you up on the non-event.

My 'team' sang me that crappy HB song and honestly, I've heard dirges sung with more life. I didn't want to hear it anyways.

The red velvet cupcake you see me eating was not for the b-day, but just something someone brought into the office as she's trying out recipes.

Let's just say 'yuck'. I'm not sure why it tasted so iffy, but I totally tasted something like vinegar. Don't get me wrong - I finished the entire thing. I'm nothing if not courteous. I took one for the team, so to speak.

Totally wasted calories. Blech.

Home was much lower key - which is exactly what I wanted. Dinner with Denton and two little gifts, even though I said I needed and wanted nothing.

But I'm old and feel old. My back is hurting again and I'm hoping it does not progress - like time, like age.

Blech.

Gee, you sound terrific.

It's not that bad! Aging is, after all, the only way to live!

I hit 55 in a couple of months. I know what it feels like. And I'm just getting started.

Cheers, blessings, and more.

Wow, that was inspirational and touching. I was going to say Happy Birthday but I guess I'll just say hope your back pain goes away :-)

Sorry about your back, hon. But a birthday IS something to celebrate. You've survived another year! They get more precious as time goes on.

Red Velvet Cake (the batter) has a small amount of vinegar in it. None in the icing, though.

I too want to wish you a belated birthday; I hope this next year is your best ever.

Aww, well we're all getting older and feeling those cruel "adjustments" we have to make. I hope you had a lovely evening with Denton. Happy happy!
