Happy Birthday to me

Of course, my birthday is April Fools Day.

Did you expect anything different?

I was making up a list of top ten things bad about getting older.

But you know with my blazing typing speed (17 WPM in the house, for shizzle) that's probably a 2 hour task. I don't have the patience for that on my special day.

So, I listed my number 1 bad thing about getting older.

Raquel Welch is selling reading glasses.

Maybe my younger readers won't care, but I'm sure my older ones, especially male boomers, will get it.

Hey, I didn't expect to make it after the last year or so, and I'm really grateful for the second chance I got and really appreciated all the prayers and good wishes I received. Even though there is no scientific evidence, I am positive that is the reason I'm still standing. Well, youse know what I mean.

Happy Birthday! Many happy returns. And, of course, a Happy New Year. Heh, heh. (Yeah, I know some history.)

About those eyeglasses - I didn't think I'd need them at 37 years of age. Considering how old Raquel is, I'd think anyone would need glasses to believe how good she looks.

Anyway, enjoy your day!

Regards to Mrs. C, too!

@ middle child: Yes it really is. And I've spent years of everyone saying "It explains everything." or "it figures" along with several dopey things.

@ LL : Thanks
