Fifty is Nifty + Poetry Friday

Yesterday was my birthday...my 50th birthday. I am grateful to be able to celebrate another successful trip around the sun - albeit with a little more gray hair.






















This week we are celebrating poetry at The Miss Rumphius Effect. Join us!

  2. I think there's one word you might want to cut. OLD! You don't seem old in the slightest.

    1. Thank you, Violet! You're too kind - my gray is cleverly disguised as what my daughter's like to call "grond" (gray/blond). =)

  7. 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.

    1. 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)
