The Tuesday Question ???



There is no ‘Tuesday Question’ today. Why? Because today is my birthday and the only question I want answered - How come each birthday seems to come around quicker each year? - no one can answer. Well, you can try…

Can you remember when you stopped looking forward to adding another year to your age?

When someone asked me how old I was at 6, I’d reply ‘almost 7’ or ‘6 and three quarters’. I couldn’t wait to get to 7 and then 8 and then 9...

Then I became an 'adult’ and adding numbers to my age didn’t seem so great. Except for some reason I thought it would be great to be 30. I had this idea that when you get to 30, your life would be all set and perfect.

But at 30 I discovered life wasn’t perfect, nor would it be. You can have slices of perfection in your life, but a perfect life… maybe that’s just one for the movies.

So don’t ask how old I am, I won’t tell … I stopped counting a long time ago. These days, I see each birthday as a celebration to start another year of possibilities…

My birthday present - a trip over to Sydney at the end of the week to attend The Australian Journalism Conference

I'm also hoping for one of these…


Meanwhile, I’m off to a champagne brunch … maybe being an adult is not that bad after all…

Happy birthday also! As for the camera, that makes two of us -- I just got word from Amazon that it has finally shipped my new Cannon that I ordered over a month ago. Take a sip of the champaigne for me! Again, happy,happy birthday.

Thanks Harmony and Granny J. Had a great day. Now it's back to working on this years possibilities.

Granny J, hope your camera arrives soon. Should be picking mine up next week.
