Today Is My Birthday

So far, I have received two birthday cards: one from my father and one from Southwest Airlines.

My dad's card was very sweet and it contained money. I can't tell you how much of a thrill it is to still get a birthday card with cash inside. (I call them Daddy Dollars.)

The Southwest card had no such monetary gift (although they could have included a drink coupon) but it is kinda funny.





Delta never sent me a card. USAir never sent me a card. I doubt anything will show up in my P.O. Box from American or United either.

Thank you Southwest. Thank you dad. And I will thank my brother's cats in advance because they never forget my big day.

For the record, I'm 43. Yikes!

& don't feel old. PG Wodehouse said life begins at 60. He pegged out in his 90s, so I guess it's good advice!

Happy birthday Traci. After all these years I had no idea we were the same age.

As the Chief Refreshment Officer at Humorbloggers.com I'll schedule the happy hour for 5:30 today - normal place. Drinks are on me.

What could be a better birthday gift than a picture hamster holding a tiny cake in his little paws?

Happy Birthday!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

I know it sounds silly, but I like when the companies send me birthday messages. At least it's something...

Thanks guys. I've always associated my birthday with the end of summer and the start of school... which means it usually causes a great deal of stress. Thanks for making me smile this year.

Happy birthday!

I know it's a little sad, but I give my birthday info to companies on purpose to get the cards. Every year I get a free gift from Sephora, 10% off at bliss.com and a $50 certificate toward travel that I will never use.

Woohoo! Start signing up. Automated greetings make getting older that much more fun!
