Living History



One year ago today was moving day for us. It's probably safe to say I don't know how to plan a birthday celebration, don't you agree? Today is much different, though I forgot to request the day off and I do have to work tonight. I worked last night, too, but had no assignment and only one call. I can only hope tonight is a repeat, but since I want to live to see 55, I won't hold my breath. I'll do well to consider last night's shift an early gift.

I awakened today to find I'm the new owner of a Kindle and the holder of tickets to see Neil Young. I couldn't have gotten better gifts if I'd bought them myself. They're just perfect.

Note to my 54 year old self: if you want to use those tickets, you need to take May 4th off.

Happy Birthday Rudee, have a great day. I hope you enjoy your Kindle. I''m still hanging onto my B-day money and may still buy one too. My sweetie isn't as creative as yours, he just gives money. Hoping to hear which one you've got and if you like it before I buy one...ciao
