All the calls and greetings on FaceBook made me think of other birthdays. On my 30th birthday, my friend Kathy H. turned 30 just a few days before me. We celebrated with a day of skiing at Taos. Here is a photo from that day. From the left: Kathy H, Me, Janetta, and Kathy N. I remember having a great day - and I was much thinner.
One of my favorite birthdays was in 2006 when my art girls took me to lunch in Medicine Park. I posted a photo here. Last year's big 50 party was also great - I love to play volleyball and here are those pics. You know, I have been blessed with some good friends and some good times through the years. Last night's supper with friends was filled with laughs - just what I wanted for my birthday. Thanks to all who made my day special with your well-wishes.
And since I am getting older, I will tell a story on myself. Our TV remote died the other day. We could not turn the TV on or off or change channels. Toby went to Wal-Mart and bought a new remote, but it is just not the same. Toby needs to do some more figuring on it - right now we have to manually turn the TV on, but we can change the channels - sort of. The other night, I had the remote and was trying to change channels. It was not going well, and I said, "Why is it going up when I am pushing the down button?" Toby replied, "Maybe because you are holding the remote upside down." We laughed and laughed. Then Toby said, "Ask me how I knew the answer to that so fast." And we laughed some more.
