At 7:04 pm this evening CST.........


I will be FIFTY years old (young)! One of my favorite email quotes:

Motto
Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intentions of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, CHOCOLATE in one hand, a MARTINI in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO HOO, WHAT A RIDE!'

Happy happy happy birthday to you! And just a little secret from someone looking closely at her own 60th (!) birthday in October...IT GETS MORE FUN! Yeah, it does! Finally letting myself be who I am and not what others expect - laughing, playing, drawing, and loving life- the best really IS yet to come! So enjoy every minute of your 50th year and know more and more is waiting for YOU!
