I’m Seventy-Three!

Today I’m 73 years old. 
Am I glad?
You bet!!!
Despite all the wrinkles, the white hair, the laughter, and the tears it was worth the run!!!  I’m looking forward to the next 10!

At the Tax man’s office yesterday he gave me this as an early birthday present.

Yes my friend it is a belly button lint brush.  It is the first one I’ve ever owned.  WOW!

  4. Great happy birthday just visited your site and found your news!! 

    I have another rock and roll evening tomorrow Saturday when a local star from the sixties is to sing again for us, although wheelchair bound nowadays with motor neurons disease and cannot move his arms etc, but still can sing!!  He was one of us as young ones in the 60s and had his own Group then.  Of course a younger Group backs him now but there will be about 3 – 400 of old teenage friends coming and enjoying all the memories hopefully!!  Many late 60s now in age,
    some in their 70s like youself.  We usually end up rock and rolling at the end of the evening.
    Am going with two good lady friends so hope for a fun evening.

    Trust you are celebrating you birthday.  Marion

  5. I would like to wish you a happy birthday because you are the same age as my sister who turned 73 on February 2.  My compliments on your blog and the fact that you are doing this.  I wish I could get my sister to do something like this.  She has become very depressed the past couple of years as her daughter is battling ovarian cancer and my sister seems to find very little joy in her own life.  You, on the other hand, seem to be handling life very well.  Congratulations and many more wonderful years to enjoy.

  6. Happy Birthday, Momma!  Now that you’ll be cleaning your belly button regularly, you’re good for another 30 years, at least!

  7. I love the belly button brush.  Just remember that if you accidently unscrew your belly button, your butt falls off. I hope that you had a wonderful birthday.  P.S.  I am Diane’s cousin.

  8. Happy Birthday to a wonderful lady.  May you live long and prosper and may there be much joy in the next 20 years…. the heck with just ten!

  9. Happy birthday! (You don’t know me. Mrs. DoF sent me )

    …That is the first belly button lint brush I’ve ever seen.
