A GREAT Way To Celebrate A Birthday...
Now that everyone (well, those who read this blog) saw my old college student ID card, you know I just had a birthday.
It's at the end of April so I'm a Taurus. It's my 68th.
Hopefully many, many more to come!
Growing up on Society Street in Ansonborough, we had an unusual family tradition of borrowing a camera to take snapshots of birthdays and other important events across the street "in front of Mrs. O'Rourke's house." There are no photos of OUR house or our backyard.
See, across the street, the sunlight would shine over my Mom's left shoulder ...just as Kodak suggested.
Or with the sun directly overhead so your face was mostly in shadow.
We had a lot to learn about photography and, getting our own camera would be the first step.
But, this posting is about my birthday and a suggestion on how to celebrate your birthday so others can enjoy it for a long, long time.
In honor of my turning 68, I sat down with a Funeral Director and planned my funeral. We even wrote an obit.
My children will not have to make these decisions at a sad time and I bought it with today's dollars. The funeral is all paid for and I can cross that off the list of "things to do before I die."
