Birthday #54

Didn't somebody say a lady should never tell her age?


My mom's pushing 94, and she doesn't mind saying so. (Besides, she's earned the right.) So why should I mind saying I'm turning 54 today?

I do therefore set aside this F&F post as B.C. self-aggrandizement day. Now accepting all birthday wishes from friend and foe alike. Have a clever one? A limerick. Mixed metaphor? A crack one-liner? Okay, then a 900-word tome. For each one my heart shall fly on a sea of gladness.

I'm a wordsmith, so I should be able to come up with something really original and snappy. But I can't think of anything better than, "Happy Birthday to a neat lady, a good friend, a talented author." Best wishes for many more.

Happy, happy birthday! Hope it's filled with all that you like best.

Linda Glaz said...

54's not so bad. Neither is 60. Listen to your mom!

For the lady who wields her pen like a mighty gale force wind, yet with the grace of a butterfly, may this year bring more wonders from beyond the double rainbow and lead you to greener lands.

(Sheesh, did that mixed metaphor take off on its own...)

Blessings, happy birthday, and thanks for keeping us all entertained!

There was a great writer of suspense,
Who minded her age not one whit.
She posted it proud
To all of her crowd,
And all the congrats rolled in forthwith.

(And here's mine! Happy, glorious birthday to one who makes readers happy and writers work a little bit harder. :)

I remember when Iwas fifty-four. I think. I do know I survived :)

She walks in beauty as the night
And boasts the seatbelt on her site.
She’s witty, wordy, caring, too
Who’s earned a Happy Birthday? YOU!

Have a wonderful day and year of serving through your ministry of words.

Hmm, written words don't capture the off-key tones of my "Happy Birthday" rendition. Happy birthday to the Queen of Suspense...may she continue on to expand her empire.
