Today is my birthday. It will be a good day. I typed this yesterday to post today while Sandy, Robin, and Jeff go shopping for me. I’ve been unable to think of anything I want although yesterday I walked into a book store and bought a copy of Rick Bragg’s book, MY SOUTHERN JOURNEY. Someone could have given me the book for my birthday but I didn’t think of it in time.
My dad had his first heart attack when he was 62. I lived past that. He died when he was 78 and now I’ve lived past that milestone too. My mother lived to 99. Yay, Mom. Good idea.
Nothing profound on my mind today. I plan to spend the hours enjoying my family. Later on I might go looking for turtles.
