Today’s approaching birthday has been causing me much consternation. To my dismay, this day points out that I have been present on this planet for three-quarters of a century. On my thirtieth I cried all day, on my fiftieth I laughed a  lot at all the teasing I received from co-workers, friends, and family. On my seventieth, I enjoyed a nice weekend at French Lick, IN with my daughters. But, this one is different, in fact, I was thinking it might be lethal, until I learned something significant in USA Today on June 24th.

Superman is 80 this month! 

This news helped so much. If he can keep on flying faster than the speed of bullets surely I can continue to walk, blog and enjoy each day for a while longer. So, my daughters and I are going to have a slumber party to celebrate my big 75 and I look forward to adding to this three-quarters of a century!

  1. Happy happy birthday Sue! I’m kind of glad we don’t fly faster than speeding bullets personally; gives us more time to enjoy the world around us!

    A slumber party is a great idea. Just make sure it’s a bed and not a sleeping bag on the floor. But pillow fights are fair game I would think! Enjoy the day!

  4. Birthdays should never be regretted because the alternative is dismal thought indeed. Birthdays should always be looked forward to because your constant planning for the next adventure is one day closer. So Celebrate the day, if not the year!
