Huh! Whatdaya...OH-No

Can you believe it? I know I can't. I mean it just seems like yesterday, well almost yesterday anyway.

Here's the low down for those that want to know the OH No of it:

Decade One and you're a little kid tumbling around playing with Barbies and baking in an Easy Bake Oven some yummy cake.

Decade Two and you're all gawky then get out of it so you get married and next thing ya know you have a baby or two, and making them cake.

Decade Three and you're a home owner and have pets and kids and grandkids and your hair is starting to get scared, so you paint it till it feels safe, so you have a piece of cake.

Decade Four and you're starting to gain some weigh and the hair is really silver, but you don't care and stop painting it - hum, not so bad... please pass the cake.

Decade Five and you're still loving it all, you've hardly fell apart, well it must be the weight that's keeping it all together, hey where's the cake.

Decade Six and I'll have to let you know how that goes in another decade, but you can bet there will be cake.
*****
Did I tell y'all that I when I was born I was the first baby in my little home town? Well it's true I was. I know it was a really small town to take all them thar days to have the New Year's baby.

So did I tell y'all that I was breach born? Well it's true, from the get go I was always a little backA$$wards.

And did I tell y'all that I played with my Barbies till I was sixteen? Well that too is true and I still have 'em only now I can play with them and pretend it's because my granddaughters insist that I must.

Finally did I tell y'all that today (January 10th) is my fiftieth birthday? I mean Hole-E -- Mole-E can you believe it? 50! I know it's impossible. Totally Impossible I tell you.

And now you know my dirty little secret of the OH No of it.

Look…LOOK at ME…I’m finally learning how to raise just 1 eyebrow.

Can you see it?

ps a decade = 10 years and 5 decades = half a century...OMG don't say it like that! Between me and you my dear internets Let's just keep it to ourselves that I'm closer to 100 than 1...OHHHHHH NOOOOOOs

Well, considering the fact that I have a decade plus six other years on you, I can believe the fact that it is hard to believe it when one does turn fifty. At first, that is, it's a bit difficult to believe. Then the darned aches and pains and other little things start visiting and refusing to leave so it does make each subsequent year a little easier to accept!

Happy Birthday, Paige and many, many more! Now, pass that darned cake!

... N that's why SnaggleTooth doesn't tell folks how old she is- but they keep on asking!
Actually, I'm amazed I got this far-

Happy Day Paige!
I know the cake was good with all that practice!

Well, HAPPY birthday!

I love cake, Easy Bake oven variety, or whatever.

So you were the first baby born in your small town. What were the others? hatched? Dropped from spaceships?? :)

Congrats, cake all 'round. And lots more laughs, poems and such. For many many years to come.

xoxoxo

Happy Birthday, Paige!!!!

I'm so bummed that I'm logging on this late at night because I missed Jan 10th by one measly hour! Dang it!

I hope you had a lovely day and did all the things you wanted to do with your family and loved ones. I hope you played with as many barbies as you wanted. I hope you shook your ass as much as you could without getting arrested.

Big hug, dear friend. May your second half century be even more wonderful and love filled then your first.

Jai

Oh Paige, I feel horrible that I'm so late in getting here, but I reckon better late than never: HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

I'm not all that far from you (in decades) but I sure hope I look as good as you do when I hit that milestone, you lovely lady you!
