I'm Celebrating Today!


Today is my birthday and I’m not saying yet how old I am but, gas cost 15 cents per gallon the year I was born.  The average new car was $1,020, a portable typewriter (remember them?) cost $68.37, and World War II ended.  And sadly, my favorite baseball team, the Chicago Cubs lost the World Series to the Detroit Tigers ~ 4 games to 3. 

The microwave oven had not been invented yet, nor had diet soft drinks, the hula hoop, Frisbees, the juke box and credit cards; not to leave out computers, cell phones and McDonalds. 

In Bubba’s words on his blog today:  “Today is the sixth anniversary of the thirtieth anniversary of Mrs. Bubba Sr.’s thirtieth birthday.”  I thank God for every one of them and especially my loving family! 

"The secret of staying young is to live honestly, eat slowly, and lie about your age."
Lucille Ball

Here's wishing you all a wonderful day!!!

So glad I stopped in just in time to wish you Happy Birthday Pa. After reading you post, I have a feeling we might be the same age. If you whisper in my ear, I will tell you mine.

If my math is correct, I figure from Bubba's statement that you are 180 years old today. You certainly don't look it!! = )

Enjoy!

Come on, give it up girl. You must be almost my age given your mention of various things. Who cares? You're a great cook, and probably a great mom and wife too. Happy B-day.

Many thanks to all of you!

In case you didn't get what Bubba said, I'm proud to say I'm 66 years old today! I've never been one to be upset by my age and am always happy each year to see the green side up!


You all are the best and thanks so much again for all your kind wishes. I hope you have a great "rest of the week!"
