YA SAY IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY???

By the way, did I mention it was my birthday last week?  62.  Sixty-two.  Sixxxxxteeeee toooooooo.  I can’t even put an exclamation mark after it.  How does one punctuate an out of body experience because that’s what it feels like — it must be someone else, right?  Looking back, there were no signs.  Certainly, no warnings.  Except for those times when I had to grab something to get up off the floor after playing with Mitch, the dog.  And I have been a little stiff sometimes in the morning…..and what’s with that popping noise when I first wake up in the morning and walk into the kitchen?  Uh, now that I think of it, I do have to raise my eyelid up when I put shadow on so I cover all the lid.  Where did that extra skin come from?  I read a ton of blogs that offer a score of information about aging — magic potions, medical

Here’s a great birthday song  !!!  Do you think this is what they’ll play at
