MY LUCKY YEAR!

I actually meant to post this yesterday when it was my actual birthday, but here it is, a day late and a dollar short, as my Grandmother always said. Call me crazy, but isn't this an unusual date? My birthday date, 01-02-2010.  The numbers reverse half way thru. Are these my lucky numbers this year? Is this my lucky year? YES! Yes, I say! Bring it on!


My granddaughter, Becky took this picture of me on Christmas as we were preparing dinner. I know it is silly, and that is why I say "Call me crazy". So here it is, more lucky numbers: I am now 64, and oddly enough, that is the year I graduated from high school, '64! It gives one pause to reflect. Who was I then and who am I now? Well, I am not going to write that book of life between '64 and 64, but let's just say I am still happy, I still make stupid jokes, and I am still glad I am me. Could I be better? Sure! Could I be thinner? Sure! Am I going to change? Not likely! But if I am, then it will happen this year because this is my lucky year!

Oh, I hope it is your lucky year! But whatever, you have certainly started the year with lots of enthusiasm. I smiled just reading your post.

YES,YES,YES...not that you're crazy..that is means you're going to have a wonderful new Year!

You are beautiful, and nice, and caring, and you don't give people the Quilt Pox. You just do good deeds, laugh a lot, and love everybody.

And besides that you make wonderful patterns and gorgeous quilts.

HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY! You're not one year and one day older...just better and better!

Karen said...

Hi, Marcie, Happy Birthday! I think your recent years have been very lucky, too, but maybe 2010 will be extra-amazing, you certainly have the cosmic numbers going for you this time!

Isn't your sate a palindrome? Same one way as the other? I think it is. So that MUST be lucky!! I hope you have a fabulous year!!

Lindah said...

Happy Birthday, Marcie! Lookin' good!

onlymehere said...

I'm sorry Marcie but you must be lying....bz there is no way that you can be 64! You look way too young to be in your 60s. I know bz I just turned 50 and I look older than you! This truly sounds like your lucky year! What a fun thing to figure out on the numbers, I never would have caught that, lol! Happy birthday a day late! Cindy
