Yours truly, taken exactly 65 years ago today, at my first birthday in West Medford, Massachusetts, where I lived then:
And just for my own record here, a collage I made a long time ago to give to my Mum – “detail of a collage” rather, because this is only part of it – the part that would fit on the scanner!
and another portion of the same collage:
The older I get (and I still have about 4 more hours to be 65 today), the more I enjoy looking through old photos of yesteryear… remembering the good times mostly, not dwelling on the bad times, and wondering how many more times I’ll be ordering fried clams from Dube’s for supper – like I’ll do today.
I have a few friends/acquaintances who are having a birthday today, so to those people I say Happy Birthday to You, too! Hope you have a nice one and plan to do something you truly enjoy!
Cheers for being a year older,
It’s in every one of us to be wise;
Find your heart, open up both your eyes.
We can all know every thing without ever knowing why.
It’s in every one of us, by and bye.
