Not that anyone has much say so in the matter, but I have found July 28th to be a very good birthday.

Definitely good when you’re a kid…school’s out!

And as an adult, well, this birthday happens to be shared with the likes of Jackie Kennedy (always felt partial to her), Vida Blue, Bob Munger, and a couple of wonderful friends: Carol V. and Debbie H.

This year, it’s extra special because 1) it’s a Saturday and 2) my daughter and her new husband are back from their honeymoon and, today, we’re all together. Soon, they will be moving to another state so I have to savor every moment.

So I’ll sign-off and go savor!

  1. Kim in Austin, Texas says:

    I was so frustrated when we first moved to England and EVERYTHING was closed on Saturday at 4:00pm and didn’t open again until Monday morn.

    Eventually, I learned to plan ahead; did all my errands by Saturday and LOVED Sundays off. We aren’t as disciplined as I’d like but we still try to stay away from “commercial” endeavors on Sunday. We keep the day for church and family.

    Just a thought.
