Yesterday was my birthday! I had kinda forgotten about it. If you had asked me I would have said it was sometime next week.
This is what happens when you get old. Thank you to all who sent me good wishes on Facebook, and yes, I really am 112 years old, just like it says there.
I got two great, slightly non-traditional birthday presents. First, in a couple weeks I am going to Missouri to visit an internet friends whom I have *known* for ~20 years but never met IRL. She lives in or very near the totality zone so I will get to see the eclipse! Another virtual friend will be there, so we can all discover each other’s real faces 🙂 Thanks, sparrow!
The other present is an email I got on my birthday from the director of our local humane society. I had a standing order with her for a pair of black female kittens, preferably littermates, to replace our two boys that disappeared last fall. She has two for me! They were getting spayed yesterday; we will go pick them up today. Kittehs, yay!
