...once a week poetry treat for the young and the young at heart...
Happy 50th Bridget! Woohoo!
Thank you, Catherine! Still celebrating...with poetry! =)
I think there's one word you might want to cut. OLD! You don't seem old in the slightest.
Hee-hee, thank you, Liz! That's the kind of feedback I love. =)
Welcome to the club! And I love the poem. I'm glad you are celebrating your day with poetry.
Thank you, Tricia! It's a good club with lots of distinguished members. =)
Happy Birthday, Bridget!! You're the coolest and youngest 50-year-old on the planet. :)
Aw, thanks, Jama! Coming from the coolest blogger on the planet I take that as high praise. =)
I loved being fifty. I think that whole decade was pretty much loads of fun. Enjoy yourself. Happy birthday.
Thanks, Doraine! I'm looking forward to a whole decade of fun. =)
Clever, Bridget! Happy Birthday. (But I've seen you and didn't notice one shade of grey, let alone 50!).
Thank you, Violet! You're too kind - my gray is cleverly disguised as what my daughter's like to call "grond" (gray/blond). =)
Bridget, happy birthday, the thought, half-century, makes me laugh. Just think of how wise you are and how beautiful those gray shades compliment life.
Thank you, Carol! I love your perspective "those gray shades compliment life". =)
Happy happy, Bridget (you young 'un, you. It's all relative.) Your poem made me laugh.
Thank you, Buffy! True, it is all relative. Hopefully this is the end of my midlife crisis. =)
Happy Birthday!! Here's to the next 50!
Thank you, Brenda! Another 50 is what I am shooting for. =)
That's a great milestone, here's to many more years, and many more grey years, to come! Rock them with pride - you've earned them!
Thank you, Jane! Again, I love our PF community's perspective on age and gray - rock on! =)
"Grond" made me laugh. Happy Birthday! And many more!
Thanks, Tabatha! I tried to put grond on my driver's license, but the DMV lady I had to pick either gray or blond. She said I looked more blond, so that's what I put. She became my friend that day. ;o)
I hope you had a great day! Oh, to be 50 again! Enjoy it!
I did, Diane, thank you! I plan to make the most of it. =)
Happy Birthday! I'm right on your tail....my 50th comes up next August. How did time fly so fast? I really don't feel a half century. I think poetry keeps us young! Enjoy every moment.
Thank you, Linda! Yes, poetry keeps us young - I love that! =)
Happy birthday! I say of my gray: I earned & learned with every one!
Thank you, Keri! "Earned and learned" - the keys to life and perspective on aging. Love it! =)
