Welcome to MY Birthday!

In the United States, tomorrow, February 16, is a Federal Holiday...the official reason is that it celebrates the birthdays of two past Presidents, Washington and Lincoln...however, it is a bit of a sham because neither man was born on this date! It is a government decree, a combined day always occuring on a Monday to assure a 3-day weekend to celebrate every year. And back in my working life, I was glad for it.

However, that's all well and good, but THIS YEAR I am claiming the day as my very own because this is my exact birthday (February 16, mark it down), no kidding around and moving target dates! Yes, my birthday is a National Holiday where the banks and government offices are closed, and no mail is delivered. All in MY honor (this year on February 16, are you catching this? *smile*). How cool is that???!!!

And to top it off, I was ALMOST a Valentine Baby!! (I try to look for the best in every situation LOL.)

Thank you dear friends for sharing my blog and now my Birthday...hope this day for you is special and fun!

Oh and my mom tells me that 49 years ago was a VERY snowy, icy night in Chicago!

Super Happy Birthday,
dear Elizabeth.

Isn't it nice when your birthday is a holiday too. Mine also is here when it lands on a Monday. Confess that as a child I never had to go to school on my b-day either as was summer holidays. Then the workforce hit me - LOL.

Hope you're having a lovely day, and that friends and family are pampering and spoiling you rotten - is so deserved.
