Is It That Time Again?



Feeling older today....

But, not obsolete!





I gotta admit 48 is getting way too close to 50 though...

whatever happens,
I refuse to BE old!






I thought about what I could do today...

The Farmer's Almanac advises
these things today....

dry fruits and vegetables
(it's a little early for that here)

Castrate Farm Animals
(none of those here, except for Sully)



Perform Demolition
(Don't tempt me, I've been wanting a new bathroom for 9 years!!)

Wash Wooden Floors
(that's a daily thing around this house)

and last,

Start Diet to Lose Weight
(the Farmer's Almanac must be psychic!)


Seriously,
I'm not doing a darn thing today
and that's just how I like it!

lazy squirrel



Wish you were here...

we could have some birthday cake...





B.Y.O.F.E

(Bring your own fire extinguisher!)



Have a Happy Day,
I AM...

50'S AREN'T SO BAD IF YOU DON'T MIND WORN OUT KNEES, DEGENERATING DISCS IN YOUR BACK, A BONE ON BONE HIP, ELECTROLYSIS ON YOUR FACE, MONTHLY BURNING DYE ON YOUR SCALP...AND...IT'S ALL HEREDITARY SIS!

I hope you had a Happy Birthday. My oldest daughter is 48 so what does that make me? Way, way older than you and it's not so bad.

Well, Happy Birthday, Lisa! Age is merely a number...or so they say. Just don't think about it. That's what I do. LOL! Your squirrel photo made me laugh!
