A lot can happen in 50 years

Yes, it's true. There are a lot of things that can occur over a 50 year span. Today I officially know what it's like to spend a half of a century on earth.
This may require a little chocolate.
Last weekend I went to get my picture taken for my new driver's license and believe it or not I finally got one that wasn't half bad. I took myself out shopping too. I'm working today but I scheduled 2 vacation days. One for this Friday and one for Monday so I get a 4 day weekend to celebrate. I'm not sure what I'll do yet but I can tell you it will only be things I WANT to do. That is my birthday gift to myself.

Happy Birthday! I think a 4 day weekend is a perfect gift to give to yourself. I'm a wee bit ahead of you though because friday I'll be 51. Eeeek! Over a half a century!

I want to reach through the screen and grab some M&M's!

Enjoy the next century
