Give Me Some Birthday Love

Well, it's my birthday—I don't mind tell you.  And I don't mind telling you that I turn 53 today.  Is it just me, or does everyone have a hard time remembering how old they are when they get to be my age.  I'm not talking about pretending you forget how old you are.  I seriously have a hard time remembering.  One time I was 46 for almost two years before my brother informed me that I was turning 48.  Wow!  That 47th year went by really fast.

This is a doodle that I originally created as a birthday greeting for my sister Becky a couple of years ago.  You can see the original using the link (if you like).  You'll have to scroll down to the bottom of the post.  I just changed the text and gave it some color.  I wanted something to post as my profile pic on my Facebook account, so I made the changes.  But I didn't want to miss the opportunity to share it with you too, so enjoy.

Make my day complete.  Give me some blog comment love.  I'll turn 53 a happy man.

I actually made myself a year older - 36 when actually I was 35 - it was a NICE feeling knowing I had an "extra" year to live through! ;o)

Oh.....and have a good one from mornin' til night! Blessings!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DUDE! You are right about remembering one's age .. I think once we hit 50 our brains stop calculating the years! It's a safety mechanism designed to protect our elderly selves from self destructing due to depression! lol

You are a sick-attention-grabbing-old-man. But I love you!

Happy birthday to my older brother, Rick. And I give you permission to "share if you dare" my birthday picture from two years ago. How come you didn't color it for me?

:)
