Another Birthday...

Last Wednesday, November 12, was my birthday - my 50th. My co-workers didn't do the black birthday thing for me like I'd asked, thank goodness! Instead, one of my crazy coworkers did this - this is what I found when I walked into my room that day:

My co-worker made this for Halloween last year and used it in a display at his house. Honestly, when I saw this, I laughed so hard about it!

A group of ladies took me out to lunch that day and that was fun too. All the staff signed a birthday card for me, and one particular co-worker, a wood manufacturing instructor, told me that "at this age, if you were a tree, you could be harvested!" Okay, so I work with a crazy bunch of guys, but they are the best and so much fun, and I've known them for so long, that anything they say and do doesn't suprise me anymore!

I didn't do anything exciting for my birthday. I just don't get excited about birthdays anymore. But when people remember me that day, it is nice. I did have such a great time that day and really look forward to the "50's Decade" now.

That is so funny! Much better than a bunch of black balloons!

I couldn't agree with you more. This certainly caught the interest of lots of people here too!

LOL! What a birthday present!! Belated happy five oh! That's a big one. I'm not particularly looking forward to my big six oh in a year and half. Maybe it'll breeze by without me noticing it like the five oh did.

Love the scrap yarn afghan's! Makes me want to try one.

Thank you, Patrice! It wasn't easy thinking of 50, but now that I'm here, it's not so bad.

If you try the magic ball afghans, you will get hooked on them! They are fun because you not only use up scraps, but no two look alike depending on the yarns you use. They are warm too, if you need the extra warmth!
