A Milestone Birthday




On May 23 I celebrated my 75th birthday.
You can see me above at 16 (I'm on the right,pretending to be sexy), center as I am today, and right my birthday cake.
Back then we wore poodle skirts, penny loafers and socks, danced to slow songs like "You Belong to Me," and "Too Young," drove in un-airconditioned cars, watched wrestling on our family's first TVs, drooled over movies with Van Johnson, typed on old Smith Corona typewriters, dreamed of marrying and living happily ever after in a house with a white picket fence. What did we know?
Now we're wired to the internet, bluetooth, Iphones, Ipads, and anything else technological. We watch over 100 channels, get movies on demand, watch our grandkids on YouTube, connect with friends on Facebook or blogs, worry about the economy, the oil spill in the Gulf. We've learned that life isn't all roses and white picket fences but we can get through it. We've had our triumphs and tragedies and hope to keep going and growing.
