Well turn that number around and that is what I am today. 61 years old.
I don't feel 61 years old! I can't believe I am 61 years old!

I miss my Mother calling me on my birthday. She used to always turn the numbers around so when she was 82 she said she was 28 . Funny lady. Her birthday is exactly one week from mine and she would have been 84 this year. My baby brother was born on her 37th birthday and my Father's birthday June 19th, my middle son June 22nd, my oldest grandson June 2nd, my niece and my aunt June 27th. So you can see June is a big birthday month in my family.

My dear husband got me this beautiful card.

and tickets to see Clint Black who will be here in Coos Bay in August. What a sweet guy.

On a sad note. I read that David Carradine passed away today. Hung himself in Thailand. I admired him as an actor. He always seemed so sincere and down to earth. I am sure he will be missed by his many fans and his family. Rest in Peace David.

Oh, Happy Birthday Patti! I liked the idea of transposing our age numbers until I did my own...45/54...I like yours better! Have a wonderful time at your concert.

ps - I stop by all the time but for some reason my computer locks up on your blog so my comments often get's hoping this one "sticks"

love to you sweet friend ~

Sweet Patti HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY my Friend Dear my happy days come to you all year if I had one wish then it would be a HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you from me:)


Hi Patti,
gosh I really like what you did with your blog background, very very nice.
I bet you did all this too ??
Lovely banner also.

Happy Birthday dear lady. 61 isn't old anymore- tee hee :) I know how you feel though, somedays it seems like I am 90 - now that is old. My theory is the older I get the more I up the years on what is old...LOL
Anyway, I hope you had a good Clint Black concert, now that sounds like fun, your hubs is a sweet guy!!
Stay happy and many hugs

I yeah I heard about David Carradine dying, he was 71 it said on the news, so sad.

I'm sorry to have missed your birthday! Happy belated birthday to a very sweet lady. I think that's cute turning the numbers around! June is a busy birthday month for us as well. My husband is the 7th, my granddaughter Morgan is the 16th, and my in-laws both have their birthdays this month! June is a good month. Now if you're like my sister, she starts celebrating the month before, the month of, and the month after.
