I used to hate birthdays. But starting THIS year, I'm not going to anymore!
So I'm celebrating! I'm

And here's a cute little video to myself!

If you have read my blog for a while, you probably know about the brain-freeze that I had this past year. All year long I've been thinking and saying, I'm going to be
I could never bring myself to say 52. And since I'm celebrating, I really don't want to go THERE right now, I mean why I didn't want to be 52. But HEY! I made it!
I'm over that huge graping crevice in the road! I am

I thought about maybe getting a Tattoo to commemorated the event. I already have a teeny tiny flower on the front of my ankle. One of my best friends and I went to get tattoo's YEARS ago. Me, a flower and she a Shamrock on her boob area. Well, I got the flower and she backed out......Yeah, surprisingly we are still friends! Hmmmm, best not to think about that too long. Anyway, yesterday I was over at Wyanne's blog.
(she's an amazing artist and she always inspires me!) well, she just got a tattoo and it got me thinking about getting one on top of my foot. I gotta tell you, if you Google tattoo's, don't be drinking coffee or anything!  some of that stuff is NOT pretty!
I do kinda like this one-

maybe change it around a little and have it wind around my ankle and down onto my foot.
OR, I'll probably just pay my water bill instead. I have a hard time spending money on things that are NOT necessary. But who knows..................
It's the year of 53!
Anything can and will happen!
and while I was looking at tattoo designs, I stumbled on a design that I'm going to have to try to figure out who created it because I would LOVE to have it as my LOGO!
Here it is! -

as far as using it for a tattoo, well it's just too freaking big!
I mean - OUCH!
but that's OLDBLACKCATBOO if I ever saw it!!!!
So, must research that!
I'm not sure what I'm going to do today but I know that my niece Maggie is baking me a special cake with Chocolate, Almonds, Cream Cheese and Raspberries!!!
OMG! Calories don't count on your birthday!
So! This is MY YEAR!!!
Hey, I just recently realized that my email address has 053 in it!
I didn't pick it, I mean of course I choose the RUBY part but the # 1 was taken and so was #01 and #001 so they just randomly gave me 053!
I tell you this is going to be a great year, I'm not making a list or anything.
It's just going to happen!

Oh ... you make me laugh all the time . I was reading your post and I guess the volume was too high and The Beatles came on and I jumped out of my seat , but I didn't mind because I LOVE this song
and the kitty video is cute . Buy art supplies instead of the water bill or tattoo
Have a great day Cindi ! Happy Birthday

I love th clip of the singing kitty.... but it made my dogs bark for some strange reason! tee hee

I wish I lived around the corner, and I wish I could bake, cos I'd be straight over with a bottle of bubbly, and another big creamy filled yummy cake, shouldn't everyone have two cakes eh?! :O)

Happy Birthday!!
I like Your idea for a tattoo and that cat tattoo is just great!

I´m thinking of getting one too, a dragon on my arm. I´m borne in the year of the dragon and I have figured out that I´m a wooden dragon. Would be great to have a dragon tattoo looking like it is carved out of wood :-)

Have a really grate day now!

Feliz Cumpleanos!! Ah, means Happy Birthday in eSpanish!! Hey, 53 is no big deal....was still in college when I turned 53 and felt every bit of it!! hahahahahahahaha!! I'm no help, am I.

Sweetie, I'm 58 now and quite frankly, I'm very happy I'm here. I've earned every gray hair, wrinkle every friggin' stretch mark from either pregnancies or just all those years of expanding and contracting...I'm in that expanding mode right now!!

You have yourself a great "burpday," as my 31 year old daughter used to say at 18 mos. Celebrate and get your self a tattoo if you so are go girl!!

The artist is Gris Grimly; the artist who did the original illustration at least.

He did it in 2002, I believe. His artwork has progressed by leaps and bounds since then.
