Today, October 8 - I'm officially truly older than dirt.
I can remember black and white TV and clicking the three or four channels. I remember red dye and when cereal said "sugared" and meant it. I remember "smoking" candy cigarettes in the kitchen while Dad had his one Camel.
Ray and I did marry - Justice of the Peace, in jeans, then a fun party that night.
Picture on the right is my very casual author picture....Maybe I should update it.
And here I am with Ray in Cozumel, cruising onward.....I know less than I did back in the black and white era. Still questioning, still stumbling, still a left-handed, green-eyed gal from PA. (a damn Yankee in TX)
Assuming I make it to Halloween, I will then have lived longer than my mother. That's mind blowing.
But cheers! I plan on eating chocolate cake and enjoying my whole birthday weekend - Friday and Monday off. Go to the State Fair, hit a movie, celebrate with friends, and of course, hang with Ray.
Happy Birthday to ME......... Yikes!
