Happy Birthday to Me and All Those Other Babies

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Gold DRE #00697006

 

I really wanted to post a picture of me in a round metal barrow bathtub with my long dark curls as a baby, but it doesn't seem to be scanned on my computer so you get a recent shot instead. My sister took that photo with my cellphone when I was in Minneapolis a few weeks ago for my Aunt Dee's funeral.

 

Today is my 65th birthday. I can't believe I am typing those words. Well, we all have our heroes, heroines, and mine are in their 70s now. When you're a little kid, 65 seems so far away, so unattainable. And then. One day. There it is.

 

And the thing is it's not even just "my" birthday because millions of other people were also born on June 28th. We are all connected to the human race.

 

I'm going to my office meeting this morning in Midtown Sacramento, but pretty much ignoring new business today. Just handling existing. Plus, I have to pack for Hawaii. You know what they say about the best laid plans . . .

Beth Atalay Thanks for stopping by. One year nobody wished me a Happy Birthday because I didn't tell anybody.

That was stupid.

Joan Cox Yes my hair was pretty short then. I've been getting it cut ever since, trying to grow it out with my new gray!

Well, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to one of those special ole gals, I find myself simpatico with!  And, yes, I fully remember thinking 65 was old, clear up to the time I was 50.  And, now I'm looking at almost a decade past that.  I am convinced that 85 is the new 65.

Happy Birthday to a younger person. As I am about to turn 70 life is as sweet as it has ever been. I must say Medicare and Social Security doesn't hurt.

Good morning, Elizabeth... wonderful picture; it's been a crazy week at my end, so I missed your birthday post the other day. Happy belated birthday! My wishes might be late, but they are no less heartfelt. (PS there is life after 65... I just wish I could remember celebrating my 65th!) And it's great being on Medicare.
