Happy birthday to Eddie Fisher, Jimmy Dean, Rosanna Arquette, Claude Thornhill, Antonio Banderas, Ian Anderson- and ME! Also a few assorted friends. Two Aunts, both deceased, shared this date with me as well.
I remember playing a Muni Opera show one year on this date, and hearing the cast start to sing Happy Birthday. I was tickled until I heard someone else's name . Felt a little bit like Barney Fyfe when he came back to Mayberry and thought the town was throwing a parade for him..
Fortunately, I've had parties thrown just for me, including a couple of "surprise!" birthdays. Plenty of positive strokes in my life. So this little incident was easily weathered.
I don't know what I'm going to do today. Maybe go to Deja Vu and buy myself a couch dance.
Been grappling with my technology lately. Specifically my digital camera. It's what I use to make stuff to put oh my YouTube page. It would just shut itself off, 2 minutes into whatever I was doing. So I have a new one, which I got for $40 at a local pawn shop. Unfortunately it did the same thing, but I think it might have been a battery issue. So it's been recharged, and we'll see what happens today.
This is probably enough verbiage to wade through. Thanks for stopping in here. Happy Friday to you. I'm outa here. More later.
