They say it's your birthday...

...and they would be right.
Add ten years to the photo in the corner (squint hard)
to see me as I am now, age 56.

Tonight there will be large quantities of wings and beer.
I already bought myself a large bottle of the perfume
I wear... Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel... my birthday
present to myself.

I'm glad I made it this far. Looking forward to much more.

Happy Belated Birthday, Jean!

Jean said...

Thank you, Joe!

Peach said...

Just came across your Blog through Moxie.

Happy Birthday!!!!

I think you are amazing just for admitting your age.
There is too much stress on youth.

But apparantly you do not look your age, nor does it hinder your Blog from Traffic. You have gobs!!

I have been writing very infrequently lately, and my traffic, when I once had it, did not have 27 comments!

Peach said...

Hi,

Peach did not get a link to her name...must have done something wrong.(chose 'other')

Scott from Oregon said...

Happy Birthday, sweet thing...

Jean said...

Peach - thanks for visiting! I am one lucky blogger to have so many great readers... I love 'em all.

As far as looking my age... it could be worse..:) but the photo is from 1997... maybe an update when I get braver.

Scott - thank you, dear man.

Kim said...

Happy b-day, you gorgeous thing, you! I'll be 55 this year, so rock on!

Jean said...

Kim - I'll be rockin' right there with ya... thanks!
