Yes it is true...sadly.... another Year Older and Deeper in Debt! Unbelievable amounts of Gray Strands are popping in all over my head (Richard strongly urges me not to 'make them go away') ...I think the words "Look distinguished " was bantered about... isn't distinguished a word that was used for an elderly high school science teacher with leather elbow patches on his coat and the smell of stale pipe tobacco hanging in the air as he passed you in the hallway??? I am confused!!
I was 'hatched' at 5:37 am 58 years ago...and my Mother (who is now 86) claims that each year since at that exact time wakes from a sound sleep and remembers the pain.... geesh! no guilt there!!! My precious doggie ' Tess La Rue' is a rescue doggie and we could only guess at her Birthday...but we did narrow it down to sometime in March (info. from her first owners)...sometime I will tell you about her story...WOW!!! Sorry, I digress...old people do that!! Anyway...our wonderful Vet here in town said..."Let's give her Your Birthday Date"... geesh, I can do that...how cool is that... so today Miss Tessie and her Mom are sharing 'Mirth' ...so far this early morning she had her 'Extra' Pup-A-Roni's ...and I am having a cup of yesterday afternoons coffee warmed up....Richard still sleeps.....HEY!!!!!!!!! isn't the Mirth Girl supposed to 'stay in bed'...what gives here????
Breakfast this morning with my Mom out at our fav pancake joint...where I am sure she will talk about the pain she remembers over blueberry pancakes.
I was supposed to be painting on my 'M' day..but I jumped the gun and got it done by this day...just a few more things to put away... and then settling down to work while catching whiffs of the faint fragrance of remodeling.
Nothing special planned for this day... other than a possible sit in the tipi this evening....ahhhh relaxation.
I have always used this day to reflect on past Mirthdays ...from very early childhood to now... memories are always the best gifts...for they last forever, you never out grow them... and they never wear out.
