And Today I Am 49!

Geez!  That's just one shy of (gulp!) 50!!!!  It's also 7x7, which is kind of cool.  I am an age that has a square root!

Regular Monday Rambles is pre-empted, since it's usually largely about my weekend and I sorta blogged about that while it was happening.  The Extravaganza Thrifting Celebration will continue this weekend.  I learned from my mother that you need to celebrate your birthday and long and as often as you can.

In fact, she was convinced that Keith either had several birthdays a year or made up several so he could keep celebrating.  Whenever his birthday rolled around, she would always insist that we had just had his birthday a couple of months earlier.  "How many birthdays does he have?"  She would ask that every time.

This brings me to the end of my posting every day blogiversary gig, too.  It was fun while it lasted, but I need to go back to my regular several times a week schedule. 

Happy Birthday to me!  Indeed:

When you get into your 50s, it'll be harder to even remember how old you are. Grab onto anything that works. For me 51 was Bobby Thompson, 52 a deck of cards, 53 the year I was born, the year one sister was born, 55 the speed limit, 56 was Joe D's streak, 57 Heinz, 58 the year the other sister was born. 59 was almost 60, so that was easy (to remember, not be.)
Happy merry.

Of course, LAST year also had a square root. It was 6.9282032; yeah, ugly, I know.

Happy Birthday to you, Eddie! I swear it was just a few months ago you posted the photo from my blog when you turned 48. What a quick year it has been!
