Ben Franklin has thoughfully let me share this day with him for a few decades, more or less (okay, it's more not less, but this is not the time to go into that). Now I found out he shares it with Michelle Obama too. I'd complain about trust issues, but I'm struck by his incredibly good taste in the women he allows to share his birthday.
Birthday rules: do exactly what you want to do, all day long:
A frosty sunny morning walk with Kharma...check.
Sewing in the sunshine...check.
A three-day weekend...check.
Ordering the 2x2 agility DVD...on the list.
Heading out to Paperback Exchange...as soon as my car is cleaned by one of my resident males.
Scrapping some Christmas memories...very soon.
Happy Birthday, Michelle, I hope you're having as much fun as I am. Happy Birthday,Ben, you've always been my inspiration. And Happy Birthday to me!
