Whatever happens to strike my fancy, but surely some sort of fiber content.


May you have the happiest of birthdays, Dear Bess!
Double nickels, good for you! I'll be a nickel and a penny in November!
Much happiness,

Or maybe that's "I can't drive/ 55"?

Happy birthday to you.

What was that slogan? Stay alive 55

Yes, well. I stayed alive that long at least and it feels great!

Today is the Happy BirthdDAY and I plan to have funfunfun all day long. The whole week as been frivolous-feeling – skittery and unsettled. Finally, yesterday, I contented myself with clearing off my desk at work – and found that missing software the magazine jobber sent me – and found I Wouldn't load onto my computer – but did get a website where I am supposed to be able to download it. That may be the sum of my productivity today. I'll work the front desk and tell everybody who engages in conversation with me that it's my birthday and feel all shivery and happy when they say “Happy Birthday” to me.

I am so obedient.

But first I'll pick up BH and we shall go get manicures and pedicures and then we'll go to lunch, where we'll be joined by L. I don't plan to actually show up at work till opening time. And then it's dinner out with the family. And after that – it is a weekend in my wonderful home with maybe some knitting and LotsOfReading – because, all at the same time, I've launched upon a ReadNComment project with 2 friends who are also reading this:


This was delivered to the library on Wed – and of course I had to begin immediately. It's as well written as her blog.


This is the library's book club selection for September and I'm leading the discussion so, of course I have to read it too.

From not reading much of anything at all I'm multi-tasking like mad. Watch for reviews – coming soon to your favorite Castle.

Thank you, every loving one of you, for the happy birthday wishes.
