the last mention of _____, I SWEAR it!



OK, sure, it probably gets TEDIOUS, right?  Me and my birthday week, which this year somehow stretched from March 28 to April 8?  WHY THE FLIP NOT *** sez I...it has been a long and cold winter and is still not exactly WARM. But most of the snow is melted and gone, BONUS!

So, I promise this is the last you will hear about my birthday...for at least 50 weeks.

I visited my mom and dad at their farm to celebrate this famous birthday.  Yep, the actual people who had more to do with my birthday week than any other!
3 months before I was born, my great-grandmother sent my expectant mom a paper birthday clown to decorate the table for my older sister's birthday.  That clown has BEEN THERE for me and my birthday for, um, 48 years...

*** there are 48 year olds with kids and grandkids, and I have a dog and cat--THEREFORE perhaps it is easy to understand why I never progressed past the age of 15, I am still quite childish, hmmm?

It's never to late to celebrate a happy childhood. You aren't the only one to have extended birthdays so keep on dancing round the sun!
P.S. Love that blue glaze!

A child at heart...perhaps childish too. Can that be the original 48 year old clown? I think not. But I've never seen any birthday clown, so it's probably vintage or antique, like 48 year olds! Tee hee, especially those who think they're kids.

Great scenery...nothing wrong with being grateful for life's gifts, is there? Party on!
