I KNOW A LOT OF PEOPLE

I know a lot of people - artistic people - who were born in the month of January so this is for all January babies:


“Fly free and happy beyond birthdays and across forever,
and we'll meet now and then when we wish,
in the midst of the one celebration that never can end.” --- Richard Bach


Today I am 53.
I don't have anything else to say about that.
I guess that means I'm speechless!

(Jerry says, "Remember, this is as old as you've ever been!")

From another January baby..... Happy Birthday!!! It helps to be dyslexic with age when it works in your favor. So this year, walk with a big smile and know you're still 35 inside!

Have a great day and year!!

Happy Birthday! And remember, age is relevant - to me (and many others) you are a "young un"! Hope Jerry does something nice for you today!

I love finding out about all the January babies: Pam and Mary Sonya, if I missed your day I'm sending a belated birthday hello and special wish to you both!
Thanks, everyone, for the good wishes. I spent the first 4 hours of the day (from 8am-12pm) at the hospital with Jerry - he's having stress tests and other things I never had to have since they think there are blockages - so that wasn't fun but he came through with flying colors so far (we go back tomorrow for more tests). So my birthday wish is that he will be okay (no major surgery for his heart).
Mary Sonya, it snowed here last night/this morning, too - so BAM, right back at ya!! ha ha
SchnauzerMom, thanks for stopping by and commenting - I haven't checked out your URL yet but I will - hate to just call you SchnauzerMom :)

Rhonda, All the best to you on your birthday. We are as young as we feel inside.
Good luck tomorrow.

A late in the day Happy Birthday Rhonda!

RHCarpenter said...

Thanks, Christiane and Ann, for the birthday wishes :) The emails and cards I received yesterday were the highlight of the day after a very stressful and tiring one finally ended, for me, when I crashed at 10 pm in bed, pulling the blankets up over my head and making the day go away!

Chris Beck said...

Happy Birthday, kiddo!! (I've always wanted to say kiddo to somebody, and figure there's probably enough of an age difference for me to get away with it here!!) Seriously, Rhonda, hope you had a good day in spite of the time spent dealing with Jerry's medical tests. Hope to celebrate many more birthdays with you, my friend.

Cathy Gatland said...

A belated happy birthday Rhonda, may all your wishes come true, especially the one concerning Jerry. Have a great painting, sharing, fun-filled year!

Thanks so much, Chris and Cathy. Chris, I've decided to call anyone under 50 "kid" for now :) ha ha We're still waiting for the news, good news, we hope!
