On aging …

Current Mood: happy

Current Music:U2 – 40 (Acoustic w/Annie Lennox)
I turned 18 during the first week of my Air Force ‘career’. I turned 20 at Hahn Air Base –

– having served my first of 3 years overseas.

MickeyMatt – (here in an undated picture from 1983)

– had a great cookie for my 2???th birthday, and my 30th almost included an incinerated birthday cake, due to Wolfie’s newness and Forrest’s being a poor shepherd of my participation of the event. If only we had had cell phones then …

I turned 40 this past week. Actually, the date change happened as I was enjoying ‘The Dark Knight’ with friends, and continued through a leisurely day off, with hats and coffee and a surprise cookout with more of my friends. Fabulous gifts presented by my peeps wearing black. Nice touch, really.

So many things have visited my brain pan recently – like how to deal with people not believing that I’m 40 – good, but really? Why would they not suspect I’m old? Huh … all good, I guess.

Oh – here I am in 81 –

-that makes me … young.

For all’s enjoyment …

I remember it so well…
A TOTAL surprise — before the days of ultrasounds (and x-rays were discouraged for too much radiation exposure to fetuses!) – and what a PHENOMENAL surprise it was.
Our lives were never quite the same, again — wonderfully so!!
