Day +1061: Every silver lining’s got a touch of grey…

Happy Birthday
“Oh well, a touch of grey
Kind of suits you anyway
That was all I had to say
It’s all right
I will get by
I will get by
I will get by
I will survive”

10/26/2013: Good morning, and Happy Birthday to me! I’ve always loved my birthday. What better day to celebrate than the beginning of your own existence? When I was 55, I naïvely thought I’d probably live to be 100. My grandmother lived to age 89, and my mother is still going strong at 92; each generation lives a little longer, right? A brief year later, I had little hope of seeing 57. It’s been quite a roller coaster ride but here I am, very happy to be celebrating my 60th with 3 of my favorite people – my husband of 29 years and love of my life, my sister, and my brother-in-law. Life is good.


  1. Happy Birthday, Karen! I know exactly how you feel. I turn 62 next month, and like you I take nothing for granted in terms of my expected longevity! Have a great day!

  2. Happy Birthday from Mike and Cindy!

  3. Happy Birthday Mausi!
