Earth Day - Birthday

Yes, the Earth and I are celebrating. Contrary to what my children think, I am not as old or as round as Mother Earth.

Last year I wrote about sharing this day with the Earth, but actually, the Earth shares the day with me. It didn't get its day until 1970, I got mine a bit earlier.

I'm going to spend the day having lunch with my daughters and seeing a movie. There is no better birthday than one spent with family. I might even get some new fodder for blogging.

I'm was also quite pleased to learn from Janice Brown last year that this is "Ancestor's Eve," its designation thanks to Neelix of Star Trek Voyager. We miss you, Janice!

So today I opened my eyes to Mr. Maven, Zoe, and Hunter singing their rendition of "Happy Birthday." (Or was that Happy Anniversary.) Now that's worth opening your eyes and ears for today.

Gretel - I can't think of a better way to spend your birthday. As always, I am amazed at what you accomplish, especially with what you've been through. You SO deserve to celebrate! I will toast a glass of wine this evening in your honor. Love ya! - M.G.

"Daddy D," thank you and many April birthdays to you!

M.G. - So good to hear from you and thanks for the birthday wishes. How's the wrist? Able to hold that glass of wine I hope. Let's talk soon. - Gretel

Belated happy birthday, fM!

I'm sorry I'm so late in wishing you a happy birthday but I didn't want you to think I'd forgotten you. It's just been one of those weeks!

I hope you had a wonderful birthday and I hope you have many more wonderful birthdays to come!
