At the End of the Day

Memorial Day is almost over.  The barbecues are finished and night has descended.  In this quiet space, say a little prayer for those who gave all.  Honor them by keeping America strong and wise and by trying to be the best you can be.

In gratitude to these defenders we humbly say Thank You.

If you have left a comment and it isn't up here, there seems to be a problem with Blogger.  I know my daughter tried twice and it never showed up to be approved.

So I'm not ignoring anyone. Please understand something wonky is going on right now.

Birthday Time

That's me at two and one third years old. Looks like I'm  having a real good time with the kitten. yeah right
Love my thighs. My grandmother used to tell people "That one's solid. Try and pick her up".  And people wondered why I was always self-conscious about my weight .  

Anywhoooo, today is my birthday and it's fifty seven years plus a few months since that photo was taken.  A lot of years have gone and there are a lot more to come. Knock on wood.   I know I've hurt some people along the way  but I've also made many happy.  I've done good things and a few bad.  I wish I had no regrets but that's not the case. In fact I wonder about those who say they have no regrets and question whether they have a conscience. That's another discussion.

But life has been good to me.  So today I'll celebrate my fifty-eight years.  I'll put on my dancin' shoes and turn  up the music.  Have my ice cream and eat it too.  I'll throw my hands in the air and shout "Whoo-hoo, it's my birthday!"

                         Happy Birthday to all you Taurus' out there!!

When is your birthday?  Do you go out for a big celebration or a quiet gathering?
