|Me and Renee - 2006 Brickside Grill, Lionville, PA|
Yep it was my birthday today! I had a wonderful day. Didn't do anything special, just hung around the house all day checking my Facebook account and all my birthday wishes. Very nice! And I got an early morning FaceTime birthday wish from the adorable Dr. Spo.
I've only had two birthday parties for moi in my life. The picture above was the second one. It was taken in 2006 at the Brickside Grill in Eagleview, Lionville, Pennsylvania. Every Wednesday I used to go to Trivia Night (oh how I loved those nights) and this Wednesday happened to be my birthday. My friends Carole, Renee and Sheila brought birthday hats and those silly blow streamers for me. After a couple of martinis I was feeling pretty good!
I was looking for the photo from my 40th birthday party through my thousands of pictures but I couldn't find it. Regular readers of this blog have seen it many times already so no big deal.
I would have liked to have gone out tonight but these days I don't drive at night. Nobody was beating down my door to take me out so here I sit at my computer telling you all about it. Don't Cry For Me Argentina though, I'm doing quite well. Besides, I don't hold my booze that well these days anyway. One martini and I'm buzzed.
So here I am embarking on my 72nd year. God can you believe it? I'm trapped in this old body! Of course I still think young. Thank goodness my juices still aren't flowing like they were when I was a 21 year old or else I would have a real problem.
Seriously though, I never thought I would reach this age. I thought I would be lucky to reach 60 years of age. It's all Gravy Time now folks.
Oh, by the way, this year I received the best birthday present ever, the reelection of President Obama. If you'll remember, I've been a bit down the past month or so when there was a real possibility that Mitt Romney would win. After having survived eight years of the disastrous Bush/Cheney regime, I just could not imagine going down that dark tunnel again, especially since I am one of the 47% that Mitt Romney says he "cared nothing about."
Happy birthday to me!
