I'll Keep the Title for While Anyway--

Today is the day that I am no longer 59. Yes, I made to 60 with this year with the likes of Dolly Parton, Cher, George W Bush, Bill Clinton and so many more. The first year boomers have almost all turned 60 now. It is not that I don't want to be 60 but I would like the year to last a little longer so for now I will keep the title of this blog.

First thing this morning I was greeted by Bill with a lovely gift and birthday card. He usually does a great job in picking cards but I have to say that I am a bit miffed by his selection this year --

Really, I ask, is it necessary to have a numbered card on such an occasion? I think not! But, he had a good laugh at my expense.

This will be a quiet birthday. We will go out for dinner tonight. Tomorrow we will decorate our Christmas tree and then next week we will drive to Cape Cod where my friend Robin and I will have our ears pierced in honor of turning 60 this year.

Happy Birthday to my younger friend! (There, does that make you feel a little better?)

I think "59 and holding" is a great title and can express a state of mind rather the chronological facts.

Good luck with the ear piercing. It has taken you only 40 years to recover from the trauma of watching me get mine pierced! I thought about you this morning when I noticed the date--hope you have had a great day.

Congratulations, Carla! I'm really happy to share a birthday week with you. We'll be heading in a new year together, hope it goes well for you.

Best Wishes!
