hippo birdie time



Yep, it's my birthday today! Last year I turned forty-ten, so this year I'm forty-ten-plus-one. Geez, it's getting increasingly complicated mathematically to stay in my 40's! :)

That's a picture of me taken 'a few' years ago. I always did enjoy a good book.

Cute! Happy Birthday! Although I got you mixed up with Diane briefly, now I realize that you know Serena personally. It was nice to hear about you from her when I visited her in Edmonds.

Diane said...

Diane said...

Happy birthday.....you're still just a kid. (Anyone with your playfulness and sense of humor will NEVER get old) :)

David said...

Might I remind you who came up with the idea of "Forty-ten"

:)

Barbara B. said...

Yes, Offspring #2 indeed 'saved me' from turning fifty by renaming it forty-ten. :)

jan -- serena and I do indeed know each other personally! It was nice you were able to meet her when you were in the area.

diane, revdrkate, and marie -- thanks for your b-day wishes!

Happy birthday you young thing!! You're much better at math than I. For me, this year saw the twenty something anniversary of my 30th birthday.

Offspring #2 has earned an extra slice of cake I think.

Belated B-Day Greetings. Hope you were able to celebrate in style.

Barbara B. said...

PG -- The 'new math' does have its benefits! :)

"ps" -- Thanks for visiting my blog! I had a nice b-day.

Serena said...

Hey .. my blog continues to be slow posting (remember how that frustrated me when you were helping me get started?) Anyway, glad you got my card ... and here's belated blog wishes for your forty-tenth plus one or twenty-something anniversary of your 30th ... whatever b'day it is I agree that you are just a young thing at heart ... and that's what counts!

Barbara B. said...

Hmm... yes, serena, your blogger inexplicably has a mind of its own!

more cows than people said...

Happy birthday!

Great picture!

Hope it is a great one.

Diane said...

You have a very creative offspring. I like the new math... wish I had thought of it...

Barbara B. said...

Thanks, More Cows...

And Diane, I'm sorry the Mariners beat the Twins tonight (but it was our turn) :)

Leah Sophia said...

Happy BIrthday just a couple days late, but with all this new math, what difference does 2 days make? Hope you had an excellent day, anyway!

mompriest said...

Happy Birthday...and many more!

Diane said...

oh, yes, I was there for the debacle, Barb, but today we came back. And you guys have a chance at wild card...

Barbara B. said...
