hip hip hooray I am 40 today. They say life begins at forty so I am hoping for better health from now on, I already have a good life so I am not asking for much.

Happy birthday! 40 seems pretty young to me at this point in my life. I remember not exactly loving the idea of being 40, but I have to say it wasn't bad at all. Now turning 50... actually that wasn't so bad either.

Here's to a Happy Belated Birthday. As for life beginning at 40 , welll, maybe. I had good luck ubtil I hit 50 and then it seemed to go downhill. Everything went slowly to pieces. My back gave problems, I had an accident, hit 60 and started walking weird and couldn't do normal things like climb on a chair, go up steps,etc. This was the beginning of my neuropathy. Then it was breast cancer and melanoma and now almost to 75 it's diabetis. Am I depressed? Nah, have to take everything in stride and do the best I can. It is frustrating when it takes me 20 minutes to do a simple 5 minute job. Other then that I enjoy life. I feel like a Timex, I take a lickin and keep on tickin.

Thankyou, we usually have a family party and bbq with 1 or 2 beers, I didn't have any beer this year as I am on too much medication at the moment.

Happy Birthday! Today is a great day for a birthday! No, it's not mine also. But it was my Mom's birthday today. She passed 17 years ago. But I celebrate her life by either making something she liked for dinner or going to one of her favorite resturants. But 8 years ago today God gave my family a grand present. For me & 2 bros, a grand niece. For my 3rd bro, a Granddaughter. :D

And the best part is, that unlike her brother & sister, she looks like our side of the family.;}
