Up Up and Away

I'm on my way in just a few hours to Vegas, baby! I can't wait to get there and enjoy the sun and the sin.....ok, more the sun than the sin. I'm not a very good sinner.

It's not that I don't sin. Believe me, I do, every day, I'm sure. But blatant sins like drinking too much or gambling away my house just don't appeal to me. I'm even hard pressed to gamble a hundred dollars away.

Plus, while I am there I am happily turning sixty years old....that is a big enough sin as it is! I can't believe that the time has flown by and I'm at this landmark already. I'd like to go back and yes, erase some of those sins in my life and kick my young self for some of the stupid things I did.

Mostly, I don't look back though. I like to look forward to a new day and that's just what I'm going to do. There are still a lot of things I want to do. I have a list in my head but I am not ready to commit it to "paper" here on this blog. Suffice it to say, it will take me some time to do all the things I want to do.

Sixty isn't very old anymore--not when each day The Today Show gives us a list of people who are 100 years old and more. The lists are longer all the time and the ages keep getting older 103 and 107 and the people still have hobbies and everything! So sixty is just a youngster compared to that!

Plus how can a cake hound like me not enjoy her birthday--the perfect excuse to eat cake and honey, that is sin enough for me!!

Happy happy birthday. Hope you won a few bucks, got a little light sunburn, drank a beer for old times sake, rolled snake eyes, kicked up your heels, ate birthday cake for days, and were able to blow out the candles in one breath! All in all I hope it was a lovely day and an even better night. Here's to 60 more! Bean
