An Event to Help Celebrate Becoming Older Than the Gods!

By
Real Estate Agent with GreatWest Realty DRE# 00827565

This last Saturday my family helped me celebrate a milestone birthday. Without telling you which birthday it was, let’s just say, I am officially older than the gods.

The event just happened to coincide with another great event - the Folsom’s Sutter Street “Sip and Stroll.” My youngest daughter, Jill, made certain I was coronated with my princess crown, sun glasses, and banner, to inform all other "Sip and Stroll" attendees of my special status. I had to reach deep inside my soul and park my dignity, to allow this to happen.  My 17 year old granddaughter tagged along as our designated driver!

Historic Sutter Street in Folsom is lined with delightful shops, restaurants, and a great museum. My outrageous crown attracted attention of more than one flash mob who rushed to surround me for a photo op or two.

More than one broke out in song to that ole tune, “Happy Birthday.” They including about a dozen High School Senior Prom kids who were sharing pizza at Chicago Fire.

Sounds like a fantastic birthday to me!  I tend to look at that number as being the youngest I will ever be again.

I saw this on Facebook and it looks as if you had a grand celebration, Myrl. And, FYI, age is a just a stupid ole number. You are very young at heart, and therefore, ageless.

You made me laugh outloud, Myrl. I can see you attracting a flash mob. You have that kind of energy. And well, I could hear it, too, when you butt-called me. LOL. At least you are not double digits. I will be double digits this June but a slot down from your decade.

Can't decide how to celebrate it this year. Probably should do something with my husband since I'll be coming back from Hawaii a few days before. Any suggestions?

In any case, Happy Belated Birthday, Myrl! Macie is so danged cute!

I too missed the exact date but the wish is still as heartfelt. I am guessing it it the one I celebrated a couple of years ago. I remember this as a street fair which I sold wares at many years ago. cheers and may you have many more cvc

Myrl Jeffcoat - Happy Birthday!!! 

I will never consider you older than the gods! You're vibrant! Fun! Entertaining! and so, so smart! What a fun birthday celebration your family and friends threw for you. You and your family exemplifies the definition of Celebration! May all your birthday wishes come true!

By the way, I was talking to my sister the other day and she told me her son was in some City in Folsom. When I asked her where that was at, she said CA. Then I said, Folsum, as in Folsum Prison, Johnny Cash? She didn't know and I wasn't sure either. He had a gig in Folsum. He's the leader of some band. I wonder if he was there at your celebration playing for you!
